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 titles of talks have included "A Career in SEM", "The Evolution of Medical Safety in Professional Boxing" and a variety of other talks from doctors, physiotherapists and dentists working within sport.


Planned Events for 2022/23 academic year:

We plan to host a range of talks and in-person events such as Sports Taping throughout the next academic year.
More details will be announced shortly!

Dr Katy Guy - Chief Medical Officer for Team Wales at Birmingham Commonwealth Games 2022, Consultant in Emergency Medicine and Sport Wales (Monday 17th October 19:00)
