The Sport and Exercise Medicine programme at the University of Leeds is based on the sports science department of the university and with a faculty including some of the country’s leading Sport and Exercise Medicine Doctors and Physiotherapists we have all areas of SEM covered. This is a flexible course comprising of blended learning opportunities suitable for applicants in full-time employment.
The course will equip you with strong team working skills through its interdisciplinary approach to training. You will be equipped to work in teams of professionals with complementary expertise such as strength and conditioning, team coaches, physiotherapists, and acute injury settings.
Employment opportunities exist within NHS musculoskeletal and private sports medicine clinics, as well as sports clubs. SEM is now a recognized training route by the GMC for clinicians.
SEM is a key deliverable in new government strategies. The 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.
