About the 37th Annual Injuries in Baseball Course
The American Sports Medicine Institute’s Injuries in Baseball course was initiated in 1983 by the United States Olympic Committee (USOC). The first three programs were Co-Chaired by Dr. Chuck Dillman and Dr. James R. Andrews. After three years, the USOC sought other medical programs, but Dr. Andrews felt the course was too good to be terminated. He accepted the challenge and has lead the course ever since.
Designed to attract all members of the baseball healthcare team, the course is multidisciplinary. It is attended by physicians, athletic trainers, physical therapists, coaches, scientists, and players to address common problems. It has traditionally drawn from all levels of the game with good representation from youth, high school, college, university, and professional organizations.
