The ISMI team includes fellowship-trained primary care sports medicine physicians, orthopedic surgeons, neuropsychologist, athletic trainers, physical therapists, sports performance specialists, and nutritionists with advanced training in sports medicine-related disciplines. This team partners with EXOS, a pioneer in human performance for elite athletes and U.S. military special operations forces, to provide performance training and nutrition services to help individuals and teams reach their peak performance.

The partnership between ISMI and Sandy Spring Bank Foundation provided underprivileged youth in Northern Virginia with access to elite sports performance coaching and education. This included a sports performance camp focusing on functional assessments, nutrition, fitness training and education for 50 children. The program also funded free baseline concussion testing for 250 children and introduced post-concussion consultation and testing for 100 children.
