This stream consists of two modules, Elective practice 25th to 29th June 2018 and Trauma and fracture care 3rd to 7th September 2018.
Musculoskeletal disorders represent a significant burden on health services internationally, with an ageing population that continues to grow. The module aims to inform students about the different types of pathology seen in orthoaedic elective practice, with an emphasis known complex aetiological factors. Contemporary and newer biological and robotic techniques are discussed to give the student an overview of current practice, as well as the possiblities for future innovation.
