Who we are

The Sport and Exercise Medicine Program Committee represents the interests of all members of the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) providing Sport and Exercise Medicine, including those for whom this is part of their broad scope family practice and those with a special interest or focused practice.

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 athletes and non-athletes 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.
