Best Practices in Sports Medicine: AMSSM and AOASM Case Studies

Publication Date: June 2020

This new book features 74 of the best cases presented at the annual meetings of AMSSM and AOASM. Organized by anatomic subject, these cases touch on nearly every area of clinical interest in the field of sports medicine. Topic areas are modeled on content areas in the American Board of Family Medicine Certificate of Added Qualifications (CAQ) in Sports Medicine Exams. The clinical cases reveal the nuances in sports medicine – the grey areas where decision points can go either way – as well as the fact that a patient’s journey back to health can take different roads.
