Emerging Physician Leaders Pilot Program

ACSM Emerging Physician Leaders Pilot Program

Focusing on physician residents and fellows, the ACSM Emerging Physician Leaders Pilot Program promotes early, meaningful association with the college and a clear path toward ACSM fellowship. 

"ACSM’s new Emerging Physician Leaders Program engages young doctors early - during their training years - to excite, develop and mentor future sports medicine leaders! Understanding the responsibilities and expected outcomes of focused leadership through direct committee service enhances the training experience and builds long-term friendships, while improving lives through sports and exercise medicine."  - Angela Smith, M.D., FACSM, ACSM past president (2001-2002)
