AANA and AOSSM joined efforts to establish a Match in 2008. AANA and AOSSM utilize the SF Match Residency and Fellowship Matching Services (SF Match) to administer the Match. Applicants interested in applying to the Orthopaedic Surgery Sports Medicine Match should register with SF Match and obtain and complete the Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Match Central Application Service (CAS). All applications must be submitted to SF Match for distribution to fellowship programs. Applications sent directly to fellowship programs will not be accepted.
Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Programs are eligible to participate in the Match if they are ACGME-accredited, accredited by the Canadian Orthopaedic Association (COA), an AANA-recognized fellowship or have submitted an application to the ACGME prior to August 15. Non-accredited positions are clearly designated in the Participating Programs listing and on the SF Match website. Non-accredited positions DO NOT qualify for subspecialty certification in sports medicine through the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery.
It is particularly important that resident applicants, program directors and faculty, as well as residency directors and faculty fully understand the Match process and policies.
