Sports Medicine in the USA — AMSSM & AOASM coming up

The skyline of Columbus OH — site of the AOASM conference May 2 – 5 2018

At CJSM, we are very fortunate to be closely involved with several of the premier sports medicine organizations around the globe.  Our affiliated societies include our founding organization, the Canadian Academy of Sport and Exercise Medicine (CASEM); the Australasian College of Sport and Exercise Physicians (ACSEP); the American Osteopathic Academy of Sports Medicine (AOASM); and the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM).

We hold these four societies in high esteem, and different members of our editorial board try to visit each group at least once a year, particularly during their annual meetings.  You may remember recent blog posts about visits to CASEM or to ACSEP , posts which highlighted the proceedings at venues from Quebec City to the Gold Coast of Queensland.

We are very excited for an upcoming fortnight (the last week of April and the first of May), where we will be able to ‘hit’ both the AMSSM meeting (Orlando, FL) and the AOASM meeting (Columbus, OH).

If you want to check out the proceedings for AMSSM go here. Advanced registration has closed, but if you were to show up April 24 – 29 in Orlando, you can register on-site at the event itself.

We’re excited for so much of the meeting in Orlando, including our annual get together with our sister journals BJSM and Sports Health, where the editors-in-chief (EICs) will discuss “Secrets to Success: Q&A with the editors of premier sports medicine journals.” That session will be taking place at 0700 AM on F 27 April; if you are in Orlando, please come meet our EIC Chris Hughes, as well as the other EICs, Karim Khan (BJSM) and Ed Wojtys (Sports Health).

For AOASM, you can check out the conference agenda and still sign up on line if you go here. Pre-conference workshops take place April 30 and May 1, and the full proceedings last from May 2 – 5.

We will be reporting live from both the AMSSM and AOASM meetings; so be sure to follow the respective hashtags #AMSSM18 and #AOASM2018.  Also, we publish each year the research and case poster abstracts for the AMSSM meeting in our March issue, and so even if you can’t be in Orlando, you can get ‘up to speed’ on some of the SEM information to be shared by checking out those abstracts.

See you in Orlando or Columbus….or see you on line (Twitter: @cjsmonline )
