Abstract

In 2014, we reported a game-changing initiative to provide all UK, undergraduate medical schools, with a curricula and free resources on exercise medicine in the prevention and treatment of non-communicable diseases.1 The second phase of this philanthropic project, sees the September 2015 launch of: an interdisciplinary, undergraduate, curricula and resources. This now raises the game for all healthcare professionals. These latest, completely revised resources, now include: pregnancy, osteoarthritis/rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis/sarcopenia, falls prevention and motivational interviewing, in addition to 14 presentations and a textual module, covering chronic diseases, surgery and exercise. These new teaching materials supersede all previous versions. They are valid for 3 years, and will be updated annually, by the international team of contributors and, when the national and international physical activity guidelines are revised.
