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 2019/2020 academic year (TBC):
