Frequently Asked Question

Sports (and Exercise) Medicine (SEM)

In some countries Sports and Exercise Medicine is identified as a specialized medical discipline with defined training and standards of accreditation similar to other medical specialties. In other countries it is considered a special interest area, but not a specialized school and practice of medicine. Sports Medicine (or Sports and Exercise medicine SEM) is regarded differently on a regional basis.

Sports and Exercise Medicine emerged as a distinct field of health care in the late 20th century in European countries: Switzerland in 1922, followed by Germany in 1924, and then France and Italy in 1929. Italy was the first country to establish Sports and Exercise Medicine as a specialty in 1958.

Sports Medicine is primarily focused on the prevention and treatment of injuries related to sports and exercise, as well as health maintenance through physical activity. Sports Medicine doctors and paramedical providers are experienced with managing physical disability conditions relating to physically demanding work, treating a variety of muscular and orthopedic conditions. 

A common childhood and young adult condition treated by Sports Medicine doctors is exercise induced asthma. Prescribed physical activity and prophylactic measures, tailored by a Sports Medicine specialist can prevent the onset and alleviate its symptoms. Adults with exercise induced asthma  can manage their symptoms with a similar approach.

Sports Medicine (SEM) Team members can include:

  • Orthopedic surgeons
  • Certified athletic trainers
  • Sports physical therapists
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists
  • Podiatrists
  • Registered dieticians 
  • Sports psychologists

In the United States Sports Medicine is not considered a medical specialty. Rather, it implies additional training focused on the medical aspects of sports and exercise, after certification in a recognized specialty has first been achieved. 

Since 1994 in the US, Sports Medicine is considered a subspecialty of:

  • Emergency Medicine
  • Family Practice
  • Orthopedics
  • Pediatrics
  • Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation

A rigorous process is required to distinguish certified Sports Medicine Physicians from other physicians without specialized training. The requirements are:

  • Board Certification in Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics or Physical Medicine/Rehabilitation.
  • One to two years of additional fellowship training in Sports Medicine.
  • Successful passage of a national Sports Medicine certification examination, possession of a Certificate of Added Qualification in Sports Medicine.
  • Participation in continuing medical education (CME) activities and recertification via re-examination every 10 years. 
  • Leadership of a Sports Medicine team, which also may include multiple specialty physicians and paramedical providers.

  • American Musculoskeletal Society for Sports Medicine
