Sports Medicine Fellowship Standards of Excellence — the Podcast

We’re delighted to share with you the May 2017 CJSM which just published.

At times, I am hard-pressed to match the eloquence of Chris Hughes, our editor-in-chief (EIC); and so I will quote his opening editorial from the issue: “At CJSM, we like nothing more than to bring you work from the leaders and membership of our Affiliate Societies, and I am pleased to say that this month we kick off with an important position statement from the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) detailing their Proposed Standards of Excellence for Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship training programsThis Position Statement comes to you just ahead of the forthcoming 26th Annual AMSSM Meeting later this month in San Diego.”

The position statement is an aspirational document that all readers involved in the education of primary care sports medicine specialists should read. But…if you’re tight on time….on that stationary bike….on the plane to #AMSSM17 in San Diego…..take the time now to listen to our newest podcast, “What Makes a Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship Excellent?”

We interviewed the lead author of the document, Dr. Irfan Asif, and had a rousing conversation.  Dr. Asif has been a prolific author in CJSM and has been a guest in these blog pages before.  We’ve never been able to get him on the podcast, and we’re delighted he was able to carve out time before heading to #AMSSM17.

As ever, you can access the podcast by iTunes subscription or by going to the journal’s main webpage. You can access the article itself here.

If you’re heading to #AMSSM17 look us up when you get to San Diego. We’ll have a booth in the exhibitor’s section (#404) and EIC Dr. Hughes will be among the presenters at the Instructional Course Lecture at 0700 on Friday 12 — “Secrets to Success: Getting Published in Premier Sports Medicine Journals” (ICL 21).

See you there!
