The New England Chapter of the
AMERICAN COLLEGE OF SPORTS MEDICINE
The New England Chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine is your resource for exercise science, sports medicine, health, and fitness information, as well as networking opportunities in the New England area. Navigate through our site to learn more about NEACSM and the resources we offer. If you need more information or have a question, please contact us.
One of our goals is to provide education and professional events by hosting and sponsoring two annual meetings each year in the fall and spring. Our annual meeting is typically held in Rhode Island in October and our spring meeting occurs in March.
NEACSM is one of twelve regional chapters of ACSM. We represent Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. As a member you are offered unique opportunities to interact more directly and frequently with fellow sports medicine and exercise science professionals.
We provide scholarships and research grants at both the graduate, undergraduate, and pre-professional level. Please explore opportunities that may be available to you here. Scholarship deadlines are generally in January and May of each year.
