Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellowship Match
The Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellowship Match (OSMFM) was established in 2008. Its goal is to coordinate fellowship appointments, thus relieving the pressure of uncoordinated appointments and forced early choices. The Match has 93 programs representing 219 fellowship positions participating. The participating programs will not make any appointments until the match has been completed.
The American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) and Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA) sponsor the matching process and provides a forum for the discussion of match-related issues. The Matching office does not in any way sponsor or approve any of the participating programs. The function of the Matching Program is strictly limited to processing of the match. Listing or not listing of any program in the directory does not imply any form of approval, disapproval or endorsement. The decision to be listed or not rests solely with each individual Program Director.
