The NDORMS department aims to discover the causes of musculoskeletal and inflammatory conditions to deliver excellent and innovative care that improves people’s quality of life. The department consists of three different centres/institutes, the Botnar Research Centre, the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology and the Kadoorie Centre containing a number of world leading research units. There are two separate graduate programs one for the Botnar and Kadoorie institutes and one for the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology each with different entry requirements and application procedures.
