The Irish Society of Orthopaedic and Rheumatological Medicine (ISORM) aims to promote the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of Musculoskeletal disorders. It offers an educational programme focusing on empowering the Primary Care Therapist to confidently assess and treat a patient presenting with an apparent soft tissue injury.

It provides a forum for further professional development of Medical, Physiotherapist and allied therapists in an area which is rapidly evolving. It has adopted some of the philosophy of Seamus Heaney as a core value: 

"each point of arrival is a stepping stone rather than a destination"
- Seamus Heaney
