ACSM’s organization is a worldwide membership association (like the college of surgeons) of more than 50,000 professionals in the sports medicine and exercise science fields. ACSM doesn’t have a campus or student body, and you can‘t get a degree from ACSM. Rather, the organization is a college in the sense that the members and certified professionals are a community of professionals who share a common purpose – the purpose of advancing health through science, education and medicine.
