Careers in Sports Medicine

The term sports medicine refers to a broad field of medical practice related to physical activity and sport. The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) has defined sports medicine as multidisciplinary, including the physiological, biomechanical, psychological, and pathological phenomena associated with exercise and sports.

The field of sports medicine encompasses under its umbrella a number of more specialized aspects of dealing with the physically active or athletic populations that may be classified as relating either to performance enhancement (biomechanics, coaching, exercise physiology, physical education, strength & condition, sports nutrition, and sports psychology) or to injury care and management (athletic training, EMS, orthopedist, orthotists/prothetists, practice of medicine [physicians, physician assistants], osteopathic medicine, sports chiropractic, sports dentistry, sports physical therapy, and sports massage therapy).
