BASES signs a Memorandum of Collaboration with Clinical Exercise Physiology Association

28th June 2022

This Memorandum of Collaboration (MoC) outlines the defined and agreed collaborative relationship between the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES) and Clinical Exercise Physiology Association (CEPA) for purposes that enhance the activities of each organisation and foster co-operation in an international context for the benefit of all professions and professionals involved within the respective organisations.

The Clinical Exercise Physiology Association (CEPA) is an affiliate society of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). The primary purpose of CEPA is to advance the scientific and practical application of clinical exercise physiology for the betterment of the health, fitness, and quality of life for patients at high risk or living with a chronic disease.

The MoC was signed earlier this year by Prof Zoe Knowles FBASES, BASES’ Chair and Dr Laura Richardson, CEPA President.

Commenting on the MoC, Prof Knowles said, "It’s an exciting venture to forge a relationship with a long-established learned body that will provide members from both groups with further benefits and opportunities. BASES provides a range of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) opportunities for members. CEPA members can now access this learning at the same rate as BASES’ members.”

Dr Richardson said “We are very pleased to establish a new strategic partnership with the British Association of Sports and Exercise Sciences. BASES’ members will be able to register for CEPA continuing education programs at the CEPA member rate. If registrants are unable to attend live programming, recordings of the presentation will be provided. CEPA is looking forward to global collaborations to help advance the field of clinical exercise physiology.”

BASES members can read more about accessing continuing education through the CEPA at a discounted rate here.
