The Association exists to futher the education and networking opportunities of Chartered Physiotherapist with an interest in Sports & Exercise Medicine. Membership is open to CSP members only, whether resident in the UK or overseas.
Licence to practice as a Physiotherapist in the UK is granted by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) which is a government controlled body. HCPC takes advice from the CSP regarding academic content and professional standards of physiotherapy courses and considers the eligibility of graduates from those courses for chartered status. ACPSEM advises the CSP on issues related to Sports & Exercise Physiotherapy.
ACPSEM does not provide top-up insurance as part of the benefits of membership. The whole membership was surveyed in 2014 requesting input on how popular such insurance was. On reviewing the results there was not sufficient demand to add top-up insurance to the current packaga of benefits. Anyone wishing to buy top-up insurance should contact the CSP.
