BASEM Undergraduate SEM Elective Award
****Thank you for your interest, the closing date has now passed****
No further applications will be considered
The medical elective is a unique opportunity for many undergraduate students to pursue a specific interest not otherwise covered during university teaching. It is generally appreciated that Sport and Exercise medicine (SEM) has a lack of teaching in medical school curricula, as touched on by Dr David Humphries during his talk at the BASEM conference in October 2017, so for many students this may be their first extended exposure to SEM. Additionally, as highlighted by the recent undergraduate BJSM October blog post, many students also use their elective as an opportunity to experience healthcare outside of the NHS by undertaking medical placements abroad .
Taking the above into account and the financial complexities of undertaking a SEM medical elective abroad or at home, BASEM, in association with USEMS is pleased to offer 3 annual awards of £500 to enable undergraduate students to undertake an elective related to sport or exercise medicine, independently organized by the student.
Invitation for Applications
BASEM and USEMS are pleased to invite applications for the 2018/2019 Undergraduate SEM Elective Award.
