Student Profile

Andrew Shafik

The course was fantastic for acquiring knowledge and applying it hands-on. We had anatomy cadaveric teaching sessions, MSK examinations, teaching from physiotherapists and surgeons as well as researchers who are experts in their fields. My research project was carried out in partnership with the English FA as part of their agreement with FIFA to produce research relating to the recent rule change of concussion substitutions.
