Unifying undergraduate SEM societies

  • Act as an over-arching undergraduate society across the UK
  • Help new undergraduate societies set up locally
  • Promote regional undergraduate SEM societies and their events
  • Hold an annual undergraduate SEM conference

Act as an educational resource

  • Centralise all relevant and important SEM information so as to allow students the opportunity to become active within the field without having to wait until their postgraduate studies
  • Bridge the gap: we know there’s a lack of SEM education in undergraduate medical curriculums, so we’ll look to provide resources over a variety of mediums and formats
  • Detail careers and training pathways
  • Use our ever expanding contact base to offer shadowing experience in SEM
  • Organise annual one day courses
  • Involve students with SEM blogging, research, audits, athlete screening programmes and public health initiatives
  • Help develop Student Selected Components and assist students in planning electives in SEM

Build relationships

  • Maintain our strong links with the Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine, the British Association of Sport & Exercise Medicine (BASEM) and the British Journal of Sports Medicine (BJSM)
  • Provide a platform for students across the UK to network with each other and SEM professionals
  • Through FSEM twitter account, provide a social media presence for undergraduates
  • Liaise with companies and conference organisers to gain larger discount admission for students at SEM events
