ECOSEP Sports and Exercise Medicine Student Congress 2012
Monday 21st January 2013 - Article 5
ECOSEP is a medical speciality society, comprised of physician members within the European community. The mission of the College is to advance the competency of sports physicians, and support the process for best possible care for their athletes and the citizens of Europe, by providing continuing education and publishing research. ECOSEP understands that each country within the European Community very rightly sets its own standards, but is aware that, as an example in Britain, the Faculties of Sports and Exercise Medicine (FSEM) have been established, and that the National Health Service (NHS) has accepted sports and exercise medicine as a recognised specialty, and instituted a training programme which leads to consultant status.
