2021 AOASM Annual Clinical Conference Is Virtual!
April 30-May 2, 2021

While we miss seeing AOASM friends and family in person, the Board of Directors realizes that is not yet safe to gather together. The 2021 Annual Clinical Conference will be held virtually April 30 through May 2. Join your colleagues and earn continuing medical education in an event where you can expand your content knowledge, enhance your clinical skills, and participate in organized virtual social events.
Membership Survey
Membership is the lifeblood of any organization. Without you, the members, there would be no AOASM. In saying that, the AOASM Membership Committee, with the approval of the AOASM Executive Board, would like to ask your participation in a brief (5-7 minute) survey regarding your membership with the AOASM. We understand your time is valuable, but we firmly believe your input into our organization is just as valuable. We sincerely appreciate your time and energy to help us make our organization better. The results of this survey will be gathered over the next few weeks and be shared with the organization at the virtual 2021 AOASM Clinical Conference.

All the best in health,
Dr. Jason Smith and the AOASM Membership Committee
Basketball Sports Medicine and Science
This book is designed as a comprehensive educational resource, not only for basketball medical caregivers and scientists, but for all basketball personnel. Written by a multidisciplinary team of leading experts in their fields, it provides information and guidance on injury prevention, injury management, and rehabilitation for physicians, physical therapists, athletic trainers, rehabilitation specialists, conditioning trainers, and coaches. All commonly encountered injuries and a variety of situations and scenarios specific to basketball are covered with the aid of more than 200 color photos and illustrations. Basketball Sports Medicine and Science is published in collaboration with ESSKA and will represent a superb, comprehensive, educational resource. It is further hoped that the book will serve as a link between the different disciplines and modalities involved in basketball care, creating a common language, and improving communication within the team staff and environment.
