International Society for Snowports Medicine


The International Society for Snowsports Medicine - SITEMSH is the oldest European Scientific Society that is concerned with the study of winter sports pathologies, their treatment and prevention. Its history 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 Traumatologie et de Médecine des Sports d’Hiver)
