American Medical Society for Sports Medicine

The American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) is proud to be a partner in the Choosing Wisely® campaign. Founded in 1991, AMSSM is a multi-disciplinary organization of 2,500 sports medicine physicians dedicated to education, research, advocacy and the care of athletes of all ages. The majority of AMSSM members are primary care physicians with fellowship training and added qualification in sports medicine who then combine their practice of sports medicine with their primary specialty. AMSSM includes members who specialize solely in non-surgical sports medicine and serve as team physicians at the youth level, NCAA, NFL, MLB, NBA, WNBA, MLS and NHL, as well as with the U.S. Olympic Team. By nature of their training and experience, sports medicine physicians are ideally suited to provide comprehensive medical care for athletes, sports teams, or active individuals who are simply looking to maintain a healthy lifestyle. This partnership with the Choosing Wisely campaign aligns with AMSSM’s dedication to providing the highest standard of comprehensive care of the athlete, while reducing unnecessary use of health care resources.
