AASP COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE THROUGH EDUCATION

The American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP) is committed to education.  The AASP is dedicated to providing affordable and flexible continuing educational opportunities for physicians and other healthcare professionals who care for the spine. Special opportunities are also provided for students, interns and residents who are Candidate members of the AASP. Emphasis is placed upon providing affordable self-study options, which allow for broad and efficient dissemination of relevant information. The AASP educational programs are easily accessible by all qualified healthcare professionals thus better serving the public. The Academy's continuing education programs include online opportunities utilizing a variety of written and multimedia resources. The AASP supports the concept of jointly sponsored activities with other organizations and educational institutions facilities whose goals are compatible with those of the Academy.

Through education of its members and the public, the AASP strives to improve the delivery of spinecare. The AASP strives to use all available methods and technologies to inform its members and the public about emerging trends in spinecare while emphasizing the benefits of conservative and cooperative spinecare.

AASP continuing education programs emphasize topics such as spine anatomy, biomechanics, disease pathogenesis, diagnosis and care of the full spectrum of spine disorders. The programs also emphasize the benefits of cooperative care, methods of early detection and expanding therapeutic options available through multidisciplinary integration.   The educational opportunities are designed to promote clinical interaction between spine physicians and spine specialists of various disciplines which help to improve the continuity and quality of spinecare.

All AASP members receive a personalized online profile, which accounts for all continuing education courses taken through the Academy. The AASP awards Diplomate status with the American Academy of Spine Physicians (DAASP) and Fellow status with the American College of Spine Physicians (FACSP) to physician members who meet the designated levels of academic achievement.  The AASP awards Fellow status with the American College of Spine Specialists (FACSS) to non-physician (Affiliate) members who meet the designated levels of academic achievement.  Credentialing, via Diplomate or Fellow status with the AASP, acknowledges the member's level of commitment to excellence to other professionals and the public.

The AASP is one of the only organizations of its kind to offer interdisciplinary post-doctoral credentialing to healthcare professionals who meet the academic criteria. The highest level of academic distinction offered by the AASP to physicians is Fellow status with the American College of Spine Physicians (FACSP), a division of the Academy. The highest level of academic distinction offered by the AASP to non-physicians is Fellow status with the American College of Spine Specialists (FACSS), a division of the Academy.
