This is an important year for the subspecialty of sports medicine. The sports medicine subspecialty certification process officially kicks off this summer with the first-ever Review Course for Subspecialty Certification in Orthopaedic Sports Medicine. This course, jointly sponsored by the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), will be held on August 3 through 5, 2007, at the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago. The preliminary program will be mailed to all AOSSM members in mid-February. One can find more details on the AOSSM website (www.sportsmed.org). The examination will be administered at Prometric Technology Centers beginning in the Fall of 2007. Applications to take the examination are available online (www.abos.org). The completed application must be submitted with a $500 application and credentialing fee, letters of reference, and a complete list of all operative cases from a consecutive twelve-month period between February 1, 2005 and January 31, 2007. All applications are due on February 1, 2007. Late applications can be received by February 28, 2007 for an additional $500 fee. A $1000 examination fee (in addition to the application and credentialing fee) will be due in May 2007. We hope that this update, in conjunction with previous updates and AAOS/AOSSM resources that are available, can be used to further prepare for this examination.
