FSEM PCRMM post graduate Diploma

NEXT DIPLOMA DATE RELEASED: 4th MAY 2022

Diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine

4 May 2022. Delivered Online

Booking is now closed for this year’s diploma

Applications are now open from doctors and allied health professionals for the second sitting of our Diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine examination, that sets the standard for MSK knowledge across the entire breadth of community care.

This Diploma will support evidencing competency as a doctor or allied health professional working towards advanced practice roles (including first contact practitioner and advanced practitioners in primary care) in a range of community settings.

Developed jointly by the Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine (UK) and the Primary Care Rheumatology & Musculoskeletal Medicine Society (PCRMM), the examination and associated qualification recognises excellence in MSK care and provides a benchmark of quality for both service commissioners and patients.

Passing the examination also qualifies candidates to apply for Diplomate Membership of the Faculty. This provides access to a range of benefits and offers a voice in the future of the specialty as well as the ability to contribute to the development of sport, exercise, and musculoskeletal medicine.

The Diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine will be offered online, allowing candidates to sit remotely. The first sitting will take place on 4 May. The examination will be administered by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. The closing date for applications is Sunday 27 February. Bookings can be made here, at a cost of £250.

Approximately 18.8m people in the UK are living with a musculoskeletal problem with one in five people in England attending their GP seeking help for such a condition1. The Diploma has been developed to support the multi-professional workforce that is evolving to meet the growing need for optimal care of musculoskeletal conditions by demonstrating applied knowledge in this important field.

Both the Faculty and PCRMM are dedicated to promoting a more active nation and ensuring that MSK and rheumatological conditions and pain symptoms are not a barrier to living an active life at any age or ability level.

INTRODUCING THE NEW FSEM/PCRMM DIPLOMA
This webinar has now taken place but the recording can be seen HERE

This is a new Diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine that sets the standard for MSK knowledge across the entire breadth of community care.

Approximately 18.8m people in the UK are living with a musculoskeletal problem with one in five people in England attending their GP seeking help for such a condition1. The Diploma has been developed to support the multi-professional workforce that is evolving to meet the growing need for optimal care of musculoskeletal conditions by demonstrating applied knowledge in this important field.

This Diploma will support evidencing competency as a GP, GP with Extended Roles as well as allied health professionals working towards advanced practice roles (including first contact practitioner and advanced practitioners in primary care) in a range of community settings.

Developed jointly by the Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine (UK) and the Primary Care Rheumatology & Musculoskeletal Medicine Society (PCRMM), the examination and associated qualification recognises excellence in MSK care and provides a benchmark of quality for both service commissioners and patients.

The Diploma in Musculoskeletal Medicine will be offered online, allowing candidates to sit remotely. The first sitting will take place on Tues 8 June. The examination will be administered by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. The closing date for applications is Tues 27 April 2021. 

Both the Faculty and PCRMM are dedicated to promoting a more active nation and ensuring that MSK and rheumatological conditions and pain symptoms are not a barrier to living an active life at any age or ability level.

The diploma represents many years’ work from multiple people. We would particularly like to thank Dr Richard Collins, Dr Louise Warburton and Dr Chris Tomlinson, and many others from both PCRMM and the Faculty.

Whilst there is no dedicated hand book to accompany the diploma, PCRMM has compiled some useful resources (see here). Also the Red Whale MSK and Chronic pain handbook is highly recommended as a comprehensive accompanying text.
