British Association of Sport and Exercise Medicine (BASEM)
Our association with BASEM strengthens, promotes and encourages training programmes ensuring recognition of those with expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of all sports injuries and in the design and management of exercise of those with other illnesses. This includes the benefits of exercise in depression, cardiovascular disease and diabetes involving advice on what type of exercise, how much and how often. BASEM promotes our sports medicine courses and our association ensures the aims and objectives of the BASEM are promoted and encouraged to our students. BASEM courses can complement and augment knowledge achieved on the MSc in Sports and Biomechanical Medicine with individual objectives of undertaking the FSEM qualification. We have common aims and objectives in delivering injury prevention strategies and overall health promotion within the community and specialist groups, where the Degree is part of the training of this new speciality and the education of the nation’s exercise professionals, therapists and colleagues in the medical professions.
