DEVELOPMENT &

Career Progression

We are committed to providing outstanding education in orthopaedic surgery at all levels – undergraduate and medical students, surgical residents, Masters and PhD students, fellows, young clinician scientists, and early career researchers. Our teaching programme for the two resident rotations (Pott & RLH) takes place monthly.

We also offer a number of courses and the opportunity to develop technical and non-technical skills in our state of the art simulation centre.

In addition to delivering the clinical curriculum we offer the opportunity to gain further understanding of evidence-based orthopaedic surgery. Teaching addresses the principles of research design, methodology, critical appraisal and delivery of clinical research.
