Course

Master of Science (MSc) in Sports and Exercise Medicine.

Why?

With the continued growth of sports participation, both recreationally and professionally, the expectation for the highest level of health provision is also set to grow. Completion of a Masters in Sports and Exercise Medicine (SEM), to inform evidence-based medicine delivery and demonstrate professional competencies, is increasingly becoming a requirement within these sporting environments.1

Overview

The SEM Masters programme is open to nationally and internationally qualified medical doctors, physiotherapists, osteopaths and podiatrists (table 1). As the longest established SEM MSc in Europe (and possibly the world), the programme has a prestigious history. The vision of Professor John King, as course founder >30 years ago, was to provide the best possible SEM training and to inspire the next generation of SEM expert clinician scientists. Graduates include the Chief Medical Officers for Team Great Britain at the Beijing 2008 and London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games, and the Greek team at Athens 2004.
