Background & Disclaimer

The SportMed Directory lists qualified practitioners in seventeen different professions. Professions that have an official sport medicine designation, or maintain a special interest group for their members interested in working with athletes, are eligible to list qualified practitioners. Only those practitioners who meet the minimum qualifications and standards as set out by their respective professional organizations may be listed in the SportMed Directory of Practitioners.

The minimum standards required for listing are developed by EACH professional group, not by SportMedBC.

While SportMedBC does not endorse the individual practitioners listed, we work with the various professional Colleges and associations on an ongoing basis to ensure that the individuals listed possess the required qualifications and that they are represented accurately.
