AOSSM Awards

AOSSM Awards and Hall of Fame

Recognizing the contributions of our members - both to the Society and to the orthopaedic sports medicine community - through service, education or research, is a highlight of the Annual Meeting.

On this page, you will find brief descriptions of the many distinctions awarded by AOSSM.

The 2021 Award recipients and Hall of Fame inductees will be listed here in June 2021.

In 2001, AOSSM established the Hall of Fame to honor members of the orthopaedic sports medicine community who have contributed significantly to the specialty and set themselves apart. Being inducted into the Hall of Fame is one of the highest honors given to a Society member, and we congratulate the inductees on their great achievements in sports medicine.

The Thomas A. Brady Award recognizes the service and dedication to sports medicine of those individuals who have made a mark on their local community. Since 1999, the award has been given to an orthopaedic surgeon who has been dedicated to excellence in sports medicine on a local level, with local athletes.

This award is given annually to an individual AOSSM member to recognize their contribution to sports medicine education over the years. The award recognizes significant contributions to the educational function of the Society and to orthopaedic sports medicine. Begun in 1989, the recipient is chosen by the Education Committee.
