About the AOSSM Baseball Course

AOSSM is happy to partner with Team Physicians and PBATS to bring you this baseball conference with a unique flair. Designed to identify areas of concern and/or controversy in the management of baseball athletes in a team sport setting, no matter what the level of play.

The agenda covers various medical topics that impact the baseball athlete. Key issues, up-to-date information on patient care and practice solutions, will all be addressed. Plus, you’ll be able to participate in a surgical skills lab on Saturday. Physicians will go to the lab and test their skills at UCL reconstruction, arthroscopic labrum repair and biceps tenodesis. Athletic trainers will have the opportunity to be up close and see how the physician does the surgery, ask questions and in some cases, have the chance to help with the procedure.

Who is Eligible to Apply?

Students enrolled in a Professional Program, Post-Professional Degree Program, or Post-Professional Residency Program, or their equivalent, accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training are eligible to apply. All applicants will be treated the same regardless of their gender, race, religion, national origin or sexual orientation. All applicants must be able to speak and write in English. Members of PBATS and their immediate families are ineligible for the scholarships.
