FSEM PCRMM post graduate Diploma

FSEM PCRMM post graduate diploma syllabus: Diploma Syllabus

The diploma will be knowledge-based assessment aimed at the level of a generalist wishing to demonstrate a comprehensive grasp of primary care musculoskeletal medicine and rheumatology, it is anticipated that many existing resources will adequately cover the syllabus, for example Versus Arthritis Core Skills supplemented by a current knowledge of relevant guidelines by recognised bodies 

The joint FSEM PCRMM post graduate Diploma has been specifically developed for primary care clinicians wishing to demonstrate enhanced knowledge in musculoskeletal medicine and rheumatology, and the ability to competently apply this knowledge in the treatment of patients in primary and intermediate UK healthcare settings.

The diploma will be overseen by the Faculty of Sports and Exercise Medicine in association with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and as such will be recognised by clinical and healthcare bodies across all regions of the UK.

The assessment will consist of a multiple-choice examination. Successful candidates will be awarded their qualification by the Faculty of Sports and Exercise Medicine.

The launch date of the diploma is planned for May 2021.

There is no dedicated course at present, but as the diploma is a knowledge-based assessment aimed at the level of a generalist wishing to demonstrate a comprehensive grasp of primary care musculoskeletal medicine and rheumatology, it is anticipated that many existing resources will adequately cover the syllabus, for example Versus Arthritis Core Skills supplemented by a current knowledge of relevant guidelines by recognised bodies.
