Department of Sports Medicine

Sports medicine is a specialised field dedicated to addressing medical issues associated with sports and exercise. This multifaceted specialty not only focuses on the prevention and management of sports-related or musculoskeletal injuries across a diverse range of athletes from recreational enthusiasts to elite professionals, youth to masters, and across all genders but also emphasises the foundational role of musculoskeletal medicine.

Beyond injury management, sports medicine plays a pivotal role in enhancing physical fitness for individuals of all ages, irrespective of their activity levels. It employs scientifically proven methods to boost performance in sports and exercise, ensuring athletes achieve their peak potential safely and effectively.

Moreover, the field delves into risk stratification, fitness testing, and tailored exercise prescriptions. These are crucial for managing individuals with chronic non-communicable diseases, where exercise intervention is crucial in enhancing clinical outcomes and improving overall health and wellness.

At the moment, the University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) has earned prestigious recognition from the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) as one of the Medical Centres of Excellence for the period 2023-2028. This accolade is a testament to UMMC's commitment to excellence in sports medicine. Additionally, UMMC's collaboration with the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM), solidified through a Memorandum of Understanding for the same period, further underscores its leading role in advancing sports medicine and athlete care at both national and international levels.
