NSMP Sports Medicine Services

Clinical Practitioners

NSMP is in the unique position of having the capability and knowledge to create, coordinate and drive a national approach in ensuring education, injury prevention, and injury and illness management is readily available for all registered athletes within Qatar, including national teams.

Through basing carefully selected and highly skilled sport specific practitioners throughout Qatar’s clubs and federations, NSMP clinicians provide the critical link between their facility and Aspetar, ensuring excellence in best practise high standards are delivered across all onsite clinics.

Deployed clinicians, namely sports doctors, physiotherapists, massage therapists and nurses, are all expertly evaluated for their insight into and knowledge and experience of sport before being placed in any club or federation under NSMP’s care. Our existing team’s strength and wide range of clinical diversity is growing steadily as more and more clubs and federations seek our high level of service and wide range of insight into clinical service delivery to athletes throughout Qatar.

In addition, as per Qatar legislation, all of NSMP’s clinicians are licensed by the Supreme Council of Health (SCH) to enable them to perform as health practitioners in Qatar.

Clinic Based Approach

NSMP’s vision for exceptional sports medicine services includes providing world class clinic based services within existing clubs and nominated federations in Qatar.

Carefully selected practitioners with in depth knowledge of numerous medical services will work closely and directly with specific sporting groups, and will also provide top of the range services within other areas that fall under the broad range of sporting categories, including individual athletes or event coverage, based on their skill and expertise.

Working in tandem with the Ministry of Youth and Sport (MOYS) and Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC), as well as other sporting authorities in Qatar such as the Supreme Council for Development and Legacy (SCDL, formerly Q22), NSMP aims to continue the development of world class clinics within existing and future clubs and federations under our care and guidance, ensuring that they are also provided with effectively integrated Aspetar services.

NSMP’s clinical based approach will standardise care across all clubs and federations. By creating a focal point within each facility it will increase the availability of practitioners for multiple sports, teams and individuals, and will foster a multi-disciplinary approach to athlete management. The addition of sports sciences and the integration of coaching and athlete services allow for athlete care performance, as well as create a vehicle for community based access to sports medicine specialists.
