Course summary

This degree will give you the skills needed to deliver essential services in the operating theatre and give high standards of perioperative care to patients. Operating Department Practitioners play an essential role in the delivery of services in the operating theatre. As an ODP, you will play an important part of the theatre team and work alongside surgeons and anaesthetists. Students are required to sign a contract of professional behaviour on commencement of the award. This course is subject to HCPC approval. Whilst this course is advertised as subject to validation, Staffordshire University has been delivering DipHE ODP courses approved by HCPC for many years. This new Degree course will be offered in its place as this area moves to a graduate profession. You’ll develop your skills in clinical laboratories that are equipped with some of the most advanced teaching equipment available. In our state-of-the-art simulated Operating Theatre, for example, you’ll train in the delivery of basic care, right through to managing emergency situations. This will enable you to reach a level of confidence and proficiency before carrying out procedures on real patients. To give you hands-on experience of working with patients, combined with plenty of opportunities to apply your theoretical knowledge in the operating theatre environment, you’ll spend approximately 50% of your time in clinical practice during the course of your studies.
