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.
