Sports Medicine - BSc or wait until the masters? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am currently in my third year of medicine and wanting to intercalate next year. I have had an offer for both a bmedsci to do with a and e waiting times and also a sports science degree at leeds university. As I wanted to be a sports doctor in the future, I was just wondering which of these degrees was best for me to take? With the BSc, I have heard that in order to get on the sports medicine registrar programme you need a masters in sports medicine anyway, so wondering whether it was worth doing both? any help would be greatly appreciated! With the bmedsci I thought it might be quite good to do some networking and sports research alongside the bmedsci, and to plan to do the masters when i graduate.

    Doesn't sports medicine only have like 12 posts for speciality training each year? https://specialtytraining.hee.nhs.uk...2017%20ST3.pdf

    Talk to some spots medicine or rhumetaology consultants and ask them what you need to get in. If you don't choose the sports medicine BSc you could always do a part time sports medicine MSc after finishing your MBBS.
