Short Course

The Sports Medicine Theory Course (SMTC) is a six-month online non-accreditation programme that is targeted at primary care physicians who would like to have a fundamental understanding of sports medicine. Interest and demand for sports medicine services have grown exponentially due to an increasingly active and ageing population in Singapore and around the world.

Besides the prevention and treatment of sports- and exercise-related injuries, sports medicine also involves the prescription of exercise to prevent and manage common chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, sarcopenia and hypertension. 

The courses under the Living Well Series are designed to upskill the competencies of allied healthcare professionals, nurses, and other health-related workers who are part of the care team to coach and counsel patients (mostly senior citizens) on the prevention and management of common chronic diseases in areas such as compliance with medication, combined with behavioural changes, and exercise and diet management. The Care and Prevention of Common Sport Injuries course aims to equip learners with essential skills in the prevention and care of sports injuries. The Common Joint Paint course is designed to help healthcare and health-related workers to improve their skills in caring for joint pain using physiotherapy and tuina approaches.

The Living Well Series includes:
Care and Prevention of Common Sport Injuries
Living Well with Common Joint Pain 
Living Well with Diabetes Mellitus 
Living Well with Hypertension and Hypercholesterolemia
