- Skills in SEM can provide much needed knowledge to manage many common MSK conditions
- Exercise Medicine and Musculoskeletal Medicine an important part of prevention and public health
The Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine (FSEM) UK is opening its doors by enabling all medical doctors with skills in Sport and Exercise Medicine (SEM) to sit a new Membership Exam and apply for membership of the FSEM; the recognised, professional organisation which sets standards in Musculoskeletal Medicine, Exercise Medicine and Team Care.
The skills base included in SEM are being increasingly recognised by the NHS and can provide much needed knowledge to help prevent and manage many of the common conditions and diseases seen today. The new Membership Exam in SEM will provide a national standard for those working in Sport and Exercise Medicine. This will allow those who appoint team doctors, or commission MSK care, to identify those doctors with an appropriate level of training.
