Course Format:

This all-day course aims to teach basic orthopaedic practical skills and knowledge for those interested in a career in orthopaedics. We will be delivering a dynamic, hands-on day with the opportunity to get more comfortable with orthopaedic kits in a low-stress environment under close supervision from SpRs and consultants, so when you do get into theatre your knowledge can shine! 

Attending this course is also an excellent way to demonstrate commitment to the speciality for both Core Surgical Training and ST3 applications.
