  AMSSM Frequently Asked Questions

1) What type of residency should I choose to be eligible for primary care sports medicine fellowships?
An applicant should evaluate their interests and goals for the future when they choose a residency. A person interested in sports medicine can do a residency in family medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine, emergency medicine and physical medicine and rehabilitation. Remember that your primary care training should be your priority.

2) How do I decide which programs to apply?
You should decide: what area of the country you would like to train in, do you want a community or university setting, which sports do you want included in the fellowship, are you interested in doing research, what credentials does the faculty have, and what benefits does the program offer.

3) What are the important dates to remember?
JUNE:  Register for ERAS Application System

JULY 1: ERAS application system open for data entry

JULY 15:  Programs can begin review of ERAS applications.

SEPTEMBER — NOVEMBER:  Application Deadline (varies by program)

SEPTEMBER:  NRMP match opens for registration

DECEMBER:  NRMP rank order list deadline


4) How do I sign up for the match?
Visit the National Resident Matching Program website ( to register for the match. It is a $50 fee to register and enter the rank list.

5) Is there an electronic application process like ERAS for residency?
Yes. The AMSSM will begin using ERAS for the application process beginning June of 2013 for the 2014 match class.  See AMSSM website for more details.

6) How do I strengthen my application?
A PDF of the ERAS application, available on the AMSSM website, can be used as a guide during residency to exemplify what program directors expect in qualified candidates.  Experience and interest at an early level, presentations at local/regional/national meetings and attending AMSSM conferences can help set you apart during the process.  Meeting program directors and getting involved at the AMSSM Annual Meeting is also a great way to promote your application and learn more about the individual programs.
