ACSM Officer Perspectives: Highlighting the Role of the Vice President for Education & Credentialing

from By Mark R. Hutchinson, M.D., FACSM

Viewpoints presented in SMB commentaries reflect opinions of the authors and do not necessarily reflect positions or policies of ACSM.

Mark R. Hutchinson, M.D., FACSM, is Professor of Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine and Head Team Physician at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He also has served as a team physician for elite athletes for many different high-level sports teams, including USA Basketball, USA Gymnastics, USA Field Hockey, Team USA at World University Games, and Team USA at Paralympics, among others.

This commentary is part of an SMB series devoted to perspectives from ACSM’s elected officers. These “Perspectives” articles enable vice presidents and other leaders to share highlights of their leadership experience and key advancements being made by one or more of the committees which they oversee for the Board of Trustees. As VP for Education and Credentialing, Dr. Hutchinson is responsible for the ACSM Certification & Registry Boards and the committees for Health & Fitness Summit Program Planning, Medical Education, Student Affairs, and Professional Education/Distance Learning

ACSM is a vital and dynamic organization that depends on the active leadership and vision of its committee chairs and members. Our committees maintain the success and high quality that we have grown to expect when anything is labeled as a product of ACSM. Further, they provide foresight and vision to guide us to greater heights in the future. I am excited and proud to take this moment to share with readers of SMB the progress and action of several key committees which I oversee. These committees are essential for our internal development and also serve as powerful tools that help achieve important external aspects of the ACSM mission. more
