The Order of ASMF Fellows was established in 1984. The Fellows are the elite group within Sports Medicine Australia.

The broad objectives of the Fellows are to:

  • promote excellence in the field of sports medicine
  • encourage young members’ research and scientific endeavours
  • recognise the contribution of members to SMA.

Some of the notable contributions in recent years includes:

  • supporting the Refshauge Lecturer at the SMA Conference
  • mentoring young poster presenters at the SMA Conference
  • supporting the ACSMS Awards
  • contributing financially to the Physical Activity supplement of the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport.

ASMF Fellows have contributed by being a full member for seven years, attending Australian and international conferences, having research published in national or international publications, obtaining higher tertiary qualifications, assisting in the administration of some SMA projects and lecturing at workshops.
