An Orthopaedics degree is often taught at postgraduate level in the UK and aims to further develop the principle understanding of orthopaedics and its associated specialities. Students will conduct a broad critical understanding of the up-to-date science and practice of trauma and orthopaedic care via research projects and hands-on clinical care.
Orthopaedics modules will include topics such as trauma of the spine, response to injury and fracture biology and students will have access to state-of-the-art facilities as well as an expert faculty of teachers and practitioners.
The science and practice of orthopaedic trauma is a popular and growing career field for Orthopaedics graduates. Graduates from various healthcare and health sciences backgrounds including surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses, operating department staff and allied health professionals can work as specialists in orthopaedic trauma.
Applicants must have a medical or nursing degree (2:1 or above) and professional experience is generally required.
