International Society for Snowsports Medicine
Société Internationale de Traumatologie et Médicine des Sports d’Hiver / Società Internazionale di Traumatologia e Medicina degli Sport Invernali / Internationale Gesellschaft fur Ski-Traumatologie Und Wintersportmedizin
It is the oldest European Scientific Society that is concerned with the study of winter sports pathologies, their treatment and prevention.
The history of SITEMSH started in the 50's, when a group of experts from Alpine Countries (Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland) began to observe, collect and study the injuries occurring after winter sport accidents. They decided to meet every two years on behalf of a new Society named SITEMSH (Société Internationale de Médecine des Sports d’Hiver).
