Practical laboratory and clinical work are essential elements of the course, and we host two commercially-active facilities on campus to support this - our Sports and Spinal Injury Clinic and our Athlete Development Centre. We also work with an extensive network of partners, offering external professional placements with professional sports teams, private clinics, and orthopaedic departments.
