Dr. Jason Zaremski, MD, CAQSM, FACSM, FAAPMR has been selected as a Junior Traveling Fellow for American Medical Society for Sports Medicine’s (AMSSM) 2018 International Traveling Fellowship program tour to Scandinavia. The purpose of the AMSSM Traveling Fellowship program is to encourage academic interchange, shared research and exploration of common clinical interests with other sports medicine leaders throughout the world. The experience includes the opportunity to view live patient encounters, tour sports medicine facilities, share cases and spend time with regional experts in sports medicine.
Dr. Zaremski is a sports medicine physician at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL, and the Co-Medical Director for the High School Outreach Program. He has published numerous peer-reviewed musculoskeletal and sports medicine related manuscripts. He has a particular research interest and expertise in the overhead throwing athlete and has published original research related to the Ulnar Collateral Ligament. He has also presented internationally on this topic. Dr. Zaremski is board certified in sports medicine and physical medicine and rehabilitation.
“The AMSSM Traveling Fellowship program will provide me the opportunity to interact with sports medicine leaders from around the world with global academic learning opportunities not available in other settings,” Dr. Zaremski said. “I anticipate learning from our colleagues and hope to provide novel clinical and research sports medicine-based ideas that will be of great interest to our colleagues in Scandinavia as well as develop ideas to continue to grow our Outreach Sports Medicine program at my institution.”
The Traveling Fellowship program is a two-way exchange. Each year AMSSM selects a sports medicine physician from a partnering country to serve as the International Visiting Fellow, visit sports medicine centers within the US and present at the AMSSM Annual Meeting. In return, the International Visiting Fellow helps host an AMSSM tour to that country later that year. The AMSSM contingent includes a Senior Traveling Fellow (appointed/selected by the AMSSM Board leadership) and two Junior Fellows (by application).
