Course content

To meet the ever increasing demand for qualified Sport and Exercise Medicine practitioners in both private and NHS practice, we are seeking doctors, physiotherapists and sport rehabilitation therapists or sports trainers to qualify with us and expand your knowledge of sports medicine.

There is a strong emphasis on development of technical skills necessary for SEM practice e.g. Advanced anatomy and MSK knowledge, and practical training within appropriate environments. This course will provide experienced practitioner training and access to local MSK clinics.

Sports and Exercise Medicine is now a recognised training route by the GMC for clinicians. SEM is a key deliverable in new government strategies, demand for training has increased with portfolio GPs and GPwSI specifically interested in training for Sports Medicine, and an increasing expectation amongst professional sports clubs that team doctors should have undergone structured training programmes to Masters Level.
On completion of the course, you will gain many skills which include the ability to demonstrate an in-depth and systematic understanding of specialised knowledge in sport and exercise medicine disciplines. Employment opportunities exist within the NHS musculoskeletal and private sports medicine clinics, as well as sports clubs.
