Section Sports Medicine

Welcome to the Section Sports Medicine

The Section Sports Medicine came into being in 1999, with only a handful of students to our name. Since then we have trained over a 100 sports physicians and through research we have established ourselves at the forefront in areas of overtraining and heart-rate variability. Our course is a specialised post graduate course for medical doctors with a keen interest in sports medicine. It is our aim to train world class sports physicians and to be in the lead of the industry through constant research.
