Sports & Exercise Medicine Society
The University of Southampton Sport and Exercise Medicine Society (SEMsoc) opens the door to the exciting opportunities that sports medicine has to offer. We pride ourselves on being a multidisciplinary society and open to any healthcare student with an interest in this underrepresented and rapidly growing field!
We have hosted numerous inspiring speakers including those from Team Sky Cycling, Team GB hockey and International Rugby Union. Developing links with Southampton FC has also led to the society having been invited for teaching and a tour of their incredible training facilities.
Furthermore, our society helps students build their CVs by offering help with workshops, electives, intercalated degrees and external conferences.
New for 2018-19: SEMsoc will be unveiling our new "SEM alongside:.." lecture series where we aim to show how sports medicine knowledge can be found in other specialties! From surgery to GP or cardiology to neurology - sports medicine has a role in them all.
The committee is working hard to organise our first ever internal conference which is hoped to be held in Spring 2019!
SEMsoc will continue to organise regular interactive seminars and workshops with leaders in the field of sports medicine to give students exposure to this incredible specialty.
Although membership is free, the opportunities are priceless!
