Australasian College of Sport and Exercise Physicians (ACSEP)

Safe and effective sporting performance at all levels is a major focus. Alongside this is the increasing recognition of the importance of exercise in the prevention and treatment of common and often serious medical conditions, such as arthritis, heart disease, diabetes and many cancers.

Since 2015, we have been an accredited training practice for doctors wanting to gain an ACSEP Fellowship. The ACSEP is the pre-eminent professional body representing Sport and Exercise Physicians and Sport and Exercise Medicine in Australasia. The ACSEP is dedicated to providing a robust training experience for its Registrars, while advancing the skills of its members through evidence-based practice.

We currently have four registrars who are undertaking this training under the careful eye of Sports Physician, Dr Elizabeth Clisby, who also works at Wakefield Sports and Exercise Medicine Clinic. These are qualified doctors who are undertaking further training in Sports and Exercise Medicine to become qualified Sports Physicians. Training takes a minimum of 7 years. Most of our trainees already have a Fellowship of another medical college and are undertaking a second Fellowship in Sport and Exercise Medicine.

The ACSEP is a member Specialist College of the Council of Presidents of Medical Colleges (CPMC) in Australia and sits on the Executive of the Council of Medical Colleges (CMC) in New Zealand. Through these councils, the College is able to actively engage with other specialist medical colleges to advocate for the delivery of the highest quality of medical training and care in accordance with accepted clinical principles and to improve, protect and promote the health of our communities.
