Knee Surgery

Our e-learning Masters course, developed with support from the British Association for Surgery of the Knee (BASK), is a flexible and innovative training programme which will help you to achieve your goals. Currently this is the only programme that will provide documented evidence that will qualify you as a knee specialist. Our philosophy is to promote setting standards at this specialist level, whilst accommodating your individual progression path. Our aim is to prepare, assess and qualify you for a specialist knee practice. We shall do this through a combination of rigorous and engaging on-line activities and practical assessment of your surgical, communication and decision-making skills.
