Sports and Exercise Medicine

Why was CSEMS created?

  • Teaching of SEM is limited for undergraduates; we want to provide new and exciting learning opportunities
  • To allow our members to benefit from being part of a society linked with highly qualified SEM professionals
  • To bring enthusiastic and like-minded people together who may be interested in a career in SEM, as well as those studying subjects allied to the topics covered by SEM - physiology, anatomy, neurosciences.
  • To share knowledge and experiences
  • To improve access to relevant work experience (some of our members have had placements with team doctors and physiotherapists for the Welsh rugby and football teams, Olympic athletes, international golfers, and many more...)

Whilst our membership is made up of predominately healthcare students we cater to a wide audience and encourage anyone with an interest to attend! Previous talks have included sports dentistry, cardiovascular considerations in exercise and concussion and head injury awareness.

Planned Events for 2018/2019 academic year (TBC):

Case Studies from the Commonwealth Games

MDT working in Elite Sport

Exercise Prescription

Sports Medicine insight: Ice Hockey

Mental Health and Sport

Pressures of Promotion - the Medical team perspective

We will also be organising the Wales Exercise Medicine Symposium (12th January 2019), sports taping courses, musculoskeletal examination practise evenings, exercise prescription workshops, sports first aid qualifications (TBC) and regular socials!

Student membership is £5/ academic year. This includes all talks (apart from Give It A Go sessions) and access to special events such as taping courses (price TBC).
