Musculoskeletal Medicine – A New Frontier

The Sport and Exercise Medicine (SEM) curriculum aims to produce doctors and allied healthcare practitioners in supporting two major healthcare areas requiring urgent attention.

Firstly, the need to establish a countrywide competence in the knowledge base and clinical skills to support comprehensive musculoskeletal (MSK) services.

Secondly, the requirement to prescribe ‘Exercise as Medicine’ to promote physical activity [PA] throughout the population – pre-school, school-aged children, adults, those with disabilities and the elderly. In particular, those individuals with underlying co-morbidities and a chronic disease burden.

This SEM MSc will provide an in-depth understanding of exercise medicine’s practical applications in chronic disease states at an individual and population level.
The MSc in Sport and Exercise Medicine (SEM) was developed by world-renowned SEM doctors actively involved in working at the ‘front line’ in sports such as Rugby, Professional Golf, Athletics and Football. Our academic faculty have extensive experience as clinical lecturers and examiners in Sports Medicine at the highest levels.

The SEM MSc curriculum is mapped against the Specialist Training requirements ratified by the Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board (JRCPTB). The JRCPTB has a role in quality management by monitoring and driving improvement in the standard of all medical specialities on behalf of the three Royal Colleges of Physicians in Edinburgh, Glasgow and London.
