The SingHealth Duke-NUS Sport & Exercise Medicine Centre (SDSC) provides integrated, multidisciplinary and seamless sport and exercise medicine (SEM) care while pushing the frontiers of clinical services, research and education in SEM.
SEM benefits not only the elite and competitive athletes, but also sedentary individuals looking to start an active and healthy lifestyle, the very young to the very old, and those looking to use exercise as an effective intervention to managechronic diseases.
The SDSC has the largest headcount among SEM providers in Singapore, with 12 full-time physicians practicing SEM and the largest number of accredited supervisors and training positions for Advanced Specialist Training in Sport and Exercise Medicine.
The SDSC was formed in 2018 to leverage on Changi General Hospital’s (CGH) leadership in SEM to better serve patients and respond to evolving healthcare needs. It has since established clinical sites at Singapore General Hospital (SGH) and Sengkang General Hospital (SKH), in addition to existing sites at CGH, SSMC@SSI (Singapore Sport Institute) and SSMC@Novena. This has significantly enhanced patients’ accessibility to a comprehensive range of SEM services.
The SDSC is committed to supporting our athletes both on and off the field, including providing national athletes with medical support at major games such as at the 2019 SEA games, 2018 Asian Games, Asian Para Games and Youth Olympic Games. It also provided medical expertise at the 2018 Asian Fencing Championships, ONE Championships and the Formula 1TM Singapore Grand Prix.
As the benefits of exercise in the prevention and management of cancer are becoming evident, this is a rapidly growing field of research. Through the SDSC, Exercise is Medicine Singapore is collaborating with National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) and CGH Rehabilitation Medicine on research in this area, and introducing exercise prescription into oncology practice.
Outside of clinical settings, the SDSC supports various community efforts to promote physical activity and healthy living. This is in line with the MOH ‘Beyond Healthcare 2020’ key thrust of moving ‘Beyond Healthcare to Health’, where sport and exercise medicine can play a vital role.
