Session Information

The Exercise Prescription Course for Primary Care Physicians is designed to provide physicians with the skills to effectively and confidently prescribe exercise for their patients, within the time constraints that every busy practitioner faces.

The course is developed based on the principle that regular participation in physical activity is integral in the prevention and treatment of diseases and should therefore be regularly assessed as part of all medical care. The course will cover the bolts and nuts of exercise prescription for healthy individuals as well as patients with chronic health conditions.

The course content is largely based on clinical evidence established by contemporary research work and the Exercise Is Medicine (EIM) chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).

Doctors who successfully complete the course will be certified by Exercise Is Medicine Singapore (EIMS) Advisory Board.

Target Audience

Primary care physicians and physicians regardless of specialty who wish to prescribe exercise for their patients.
