Career paths

The largest growth area for jobs in orthopaedics has been in trauma over recent years. This course is tailored to meet the needs of international graduates from all healthcare and health sciences backgrounds including surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses, operating department staff, allied health professionals and those with a specialist interest in orthopaedic trauma education and training. It is intended to provide high-quality learning, no matter where you are in the world, in order to develop the future leaders in the science and practice of orthopaedic trauma.


This module will focus on the pathophysiology and spectrum of paediatric orthopaedic injuries, along with the assessment and structured approach to limb deformities in both adults and children. It will provide you with a deep knowledge of the evidence and controversy around common paediatric fractures and the fundamental basic science behind growing bones and injuries to them. It will also give you a structured approach to quantifying post-traumatic limb deformity and then analysing how that can be corrected using an array of powerful implant choices. There will also be an opportunity for practical application of all these skills.
