There are many exciting opportunities when considering a career in Sport and Exercise Medicine (SEM). 

SEM involves the care of people who exercise at all levels and of all ages.  It encompasses a broad range of skills from:

  • Management of acute or chronic exercise related injuries;
  • The management of medical problems associated with sport and exercise;
  • Doping related issues;
  • Exercise prescription for both healthy people and those suffering from chronic illness;
  • Team care, at both an elite and community level and which may involve on-field management;
  • Touring with team(s) and administrative work.

These skills are gained from duties commonly performed by Sport and Exercise Medicine Physicians (SEM Physicians) who are Fellows of the Australasian College of Sport and Exercise Physicians (ACSEP).
