A CPD/vocational qualification is required to allow a doctor, sports therapist etc. to work in SEM practice. Most jobs now ask for Masters or Diploma in SEM (a requirement for football league and many other sports), e.g. FA person specification for doctor job - https://basem.co.uk/careers-training - the successful candidate must demonstrate the following skills and experience:
- MSc or Diploma in Sport and Exercise Medicine (or equivalent)
- Member of the Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine (which this qualification will facilitate).
Complementary courses are available for subsequent study, e.g.
- British Association of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (http://www.bacpr.com/education/default.asp?navcatid=166)
- British Cardiovascular Intervention Society approved courses (https://www.bcis.org.uk/events-courses)
- Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine diploma (https://www.fsem.ac.uk/careers-training/membership-examination/curriculum)
The programme will:
- Appeal to a target audience of Doctors (GMC registered), Physiotherapists (Health and Care Professions Council / Chartered Society of Physiotherapy), Sports Therapists or Sports Trainers (British Association of Sport Rehabilitators and Trainers), and intercalating medical students.
- Offer a number of unique opportunities, arising from the largest concentration of UK SEM consultants and trainees in the Yorkshire region, providing experienced practitioner training and access to local MSK clinics. Arrangements with major sporting clubs and organisations will provide intense pitch-side placements.
- Based at Leeds University, students will benefit from academic support from staff in Sport and Exercise Sciences (Number 1 in the UK for ‘world-leading’ research in the area of sport and exercise sciences from REF 2014 and Medicine and Health one of the top 10 medical schools for research output;
- Delivery will adopt a blended learning approach. With access to extensive recorded lecture bank and online resources, allowing maximum opportunity for distance learning, compulsory attendance at university will require approximately two days of activities per month (lectures, tutorial, practical sessions). A case-based approach to eLearning will be adopted, with required reading and set tasks.
- The final component will be a dissertation, worth 60% of course credits. This will be based on a practically relevant topic, e.g. in-match GPS data analysis, systematic review of specific conditions, clinical guidelines for SEM application etc.
