AMSSM is committed to continually cultivating and investing in the next generation of sports medicine physicians, Developed by the Membership Committee, the AMSSM MENTOR PROGRAM is expanding to offer mentor opportunities on an on-going basis during the year by connecting current Active and Associate members with interested Residents and Student members. The main objective of mentoring is having the expectation of passing on certain tenets of sports medicine that cannot be learned from any textbooks and involves giving one's perspective and answering questions about the field while creating a personal connection between the mentor and mentee(s).

Our Mission Statement, AMSSM provides a forum to foster professional relationships among sports medicine physicians to advance the discipline of sports medicine through education, research, advocacy and excellence in patient care demonstrates the importance of building professional relationships among its members to advance the field of sports medicine. The mentor – mentee relationship is at the core of this premise where mentors share their experiences and offer important insight and advice to the mentees (residents and medical students) that are formulating their career path while it gives the mentor a rewarding experience of giving back to the profession.

Matching Process

Mentors and mentees will be matched by their primary specialty, year of residency/medical school, geographical region and other requested preferences listed on the registration form.

Setting Up Initial Mentoring Session

The mentors will receive the names of their mentee(s) along with their email address and cell phone number so the mentor can make initial contact with their mentee(s) and through the conversation decide together on a mutually agreeable date/time for the initial mentor session as well as for periodic follow up mentor sessions.
