The Undergraduate Sports and Exercise Medicine Society


The Undergraduate Sports and Exercise Medicine Society (USEMS) is a non-profit society working to promote the speciality of Sport and Exercise Medicine (SEM) to all interested students of physiotherapy, medicine and dentistry in the UK. Other students and professionals who have an interest in Sport and Exercise Medicine/Science are encouraged to follow our news and events closely.


BASEM has been a staunch supporter of USEMS since its advent in 2011. Not only has it promoted, supported and provided vast networking and educational opportunities for students, but it has also generously sponsored many USEMS events, ensuring the next generation of SEM professionals are provided educational opportunities during their training at a reasonable cost. USEMS do not hesitate to recommend that anyone with an interest in SEM sign-up as a member of BASEM (regardless of profession) as there are a whole host of associated benefits.


USEMS serves as an umbrella society for all the individual university SEM societies in the UK, and our remit includes helping new undergraduate societies set up locally, promote their events and run an annual undergraduate SEM conference among other things.

Some of our main aims include:

  • Acting as an educational resource through various means (see the education section)
  • Bridging the gap that currently exists in undergraduate medical curriculum in relation to SEM
  • Providing career inspiration & information
  • Providing students with opportunities in SEM
  • Providing an opportunity for like-minded students to network and learn, regardless of profession or training status
