Orthopaedics

Our course gives students the opportunity to build up the knowledge and theory necessary to underpin their practical skills in orthopaedics. It does not include hands-on clinical work as students already are working in orthopaedics; it will, however, provide students with the in-depth theoretical knowledge to support their clinical practice. There is a strong emphasis on the rationale behind patient management and students hone their knowledge in order to improve service delivery and effect change in their workplace. Our blended learning approach allows students to complete this qualification as they continue to work. Our course is designed by practising consultant surgeons, ensuring all elements are highly relevant for their career and clinical practice development. Our virtual learning environment (VLE) allows students to study effectively from anywhere with an internet connection.
