Course summary

Course overview:

This course provides postgraduate training for doctors specializing in orthopedics and is delivered with support from consultant orthopedic surgeons.

The course enables you to:

  • further develop an understanding of the principles and clinical concepts underpinning contemporary orthopedic surgery
  • further develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to perform evidence-based practice and research within the specialist field of trauma and orthopedics
  • foster a commitment to lifelong learning and an inquisitive approach to clinical practice that will enable you to acquire skills and enhance your practice
  • The programme is available through either a part-time (two-year) or a full-time (one-year) route. The programme structure is dependent on the programme route.

How you are assessed:

We use a variety of assessment strategies throughout your course. Formative assessment supports your learning in some modules. Each module is summatively assessed and includes a written report, computer-based statistics exam, statistics mini project, research proposal, written exam, oral exam and dissertation thesis and research article. Feedback is provided electronically for all assessed work through the student intranet.

Career opportunities:

Full time students can undertake an optional observational experience within a clinical setting. A clinical advisor devises an individualized plan for each student, which is detailed in a learning contract. Observational opportunities are spread across the course and include a range of relevant activities. They may take place at any of the local NHS trust sites and you are expected to cover any associated costs yourself.

The course supports your career development by enhancing the research, evidence-based practice skills and principles underpinning specialist clinical practice that are required within the specialist field of trauma and orthopedics. It provides an additional masters level qualification that may be used to support career progression. Engaging in research and a record of publication are important aspects in career progression if you are aiming to achieve a consultant position. Providing an opportunity to develop your research skills and to support you in preparing your work for publication is an important element of the course.
