Welcome from the Co-Chairs


Dear Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellows:

Join us for the 20th International Sports Medicine Fellows Conference to be held in Carlsbad, California on February 7-8, 2020.

In its 20th year, the mission of the ISMF Conference is to educate, train, and motivate sports medicine fellows on all state-of-the-art and innovative concepts, technology and techniques – including knee joint preservation, patellofemoral, and beyond. This course provides a unique opportunity to participate in the largest gathering of 2019-2020 Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellows.

New for 2020! The 1st Annual Biologic Association Summit will coincide with the ISMF Conference, providing educational presentations and hands-on opportunities for you to incorporate orthobiologics into your future practice.

In addition, ISAKOS, the International Society of Arthroscopy, Knee Surgery & Orthopaedic Sports Medicine, will provide a scholarship for three international sports medicine fellows to attend the 2020 ISMF Conference.

ISMF Conference Highlights:

  • Registration Fees - ONLY $100 to attend!
  • Accommodation Stipend - Provided for fellows at the Westin & Sheraton Carlsbad Resort
  • Hands-on Cadaveric Articular Cartilage Treatment and Patellofemoral Workshops
  • Hands-on Ultrasound Workshop

This course is an exceptional opportunity to interact with world renowned international faculty who are committed to fellow education. The 2020 ISMF Conference provides the skills needed to handle complex cases during the transition from fellow to attending physician.
