The GDSM curriculum combines online lectures and workshops to cater to the needs of 
me​dical doctors, who have to maintain operation of their clinics concurrently. The ratio of online (72 hours) to contact-hours (53 hours), therefore, balances competency development with flexibility for participants. To complement the online mode of teaching, students will also have access to consultation-sessions with the respective facilitator for each module.

The practical components of the programme comprise workshops held at LKCMedicine’s Novena campus on weekends and clinical / field attachments. Clinical attachments will be offered at participating Sports Medicine clinics.  

  • ​Facu​lty​​​​

    The faculty for the programme includes mainly Sports Medicine Specialists, Senior Sports Physiotherapists, Exercise and Sport Scientists and other allied health professionals from across Singapore. Beside the Singapore Sport & Exercise Medicine Centre @ Changi General Hospital, we are proud to have the support of other participating healthcare institutions in delivering the programme.

    The GDSM syllabus and programme have been reviewed by Professor Peter Brukner, who is Professor of Sports Medicine at La Trobe University and Visiting Professor at LKCMedicine. Professor Brukner is a highly respected Sports Medicine practitioner and academic and his textbook is the primary source of reference for major Sports Medicine programmes internationally.
