International Society for Snowports Medicine

37 SITEMSH Congress Andorra 2020



Welcome to the 37th Congress of the International Society for Snowsports Medicine - SITEMSH 

This congress will take place in Andorra, in the heart of the Pyrenees from 1st to 4th April 2020. ​

The International Society for Snowsports Medicine – SITEMSH is a society born in the fifties 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)

It is the oldest European Scientific Society that is concerned with the study of winter sports pathologies, their treatment and prevention.

Our congresses are meeting points where ski area physicians, orthopaedic surgeons, experts in biomechanics and engineering, epidemiologists, ski patrollers and manufacturers meet to exchange their experiences and share their knowledge with the aim to improve snowsports safety.
