*CAQ Sports Medicine: The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, in conjunction with the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, offers a certificate of added qualification for "those surgeons who have demonstrated qualifications beyond those expected of other orthopaedic surgeons by virtue of additional education, a practice characterized by a majority of cases in orthopaedic sports medicine, and contributions to this field of medicine." It is granted to orthopaedic surgeons who are approved to take and who pass a subspecialty examination in sports medicine. Fewer than 600 surgeons hold the sports CAQ nationally.
