What Training and Experience Do SEM Physicians Have?

SEM Physicians are MEDICAL SPECIALISTS. This means they are medical doctors who have gone on to complete hospital training, difficult entrance exams, many years of post-graduate training and arduous written and clinical examinations. To be called an SEM physician one must also publish original research, complete postgraduate academic modules and be event and team doctors for multiple different sports. It is not surprising therefore that there are only a handful of accredited SEM Physicians in all of WA. Medical Specialists have a number of privileges in Australia including being able to order MRI scans with a medicare rebate.
