Orthopaedics (MCh (Masters of Surgery))

Course Description

Our Masters course is ideal for surgeons who wish to develop their expertise at postgraduate level. It's designed to fit flexibly around your career commitments through blended learning.

See the website http://www.anglia.ac.uk/study/postgraduate-taught/orthopaedics

Our MCh Orthopaedics is a theoretical course which gives you the opportunity to build up the knowledge and theory necessary to underpin your practical skills in orthopaedics. It doesn't include hands-on clinical work as you’ll already be working in orthopaedics. It will, however, provide you with the in-depth theoretical knowledge to support your clinical practice.

There's a strong emphasis on the rationale behind patient management and you’ll hone your knowledge in order to improve service delivery and effect change in your workplace. Our blended learning approach allows you to complete this qualification as you continue to work.

Our course is designed by practising consultant surgeons, ensuring all elements are highly relevant for your career and clinical practice development. You’ll benefit from both face-to-face and distance learning modules. Our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) allows you to study effectively from anywhere with an internet connection.

Teaching times for face-to-face modules: 12-16 October 2015 (9am-6pm), 1-5 February 2016 and 8 February 2016. Trimester 3 students will undertake research studies via distance learning.

This course has a strong emphasis on leadership, allowing you to take your clinical practice to the next level. It’ll contribute to your continuing professional development as a surgeon and prepare you for making a move to a more senior role in an orthopaedics team.
