What is Sport and Exercise Medicine?

Sport and Exercise Medicine (SEM) is the practice of comprehensive, full scope medicine as it relates to active lifestyles and exercise. It includes prevention, research, education, exercise prescription, diagnostics and treatment for a broad range of medical conditions in those involved in, or wishing to become involved in, activity and sport. SEM pertains to the athlete and non-athlete alike, and includes all age groups, and all levels of ability. The goal is to “keep active people active and promote safe and healthy physical activity to all individuals.”
