This course gives you with an understanding of the principles involved in the development and application of orthopaedic biomechanics and technology.
Technology has always been central to the treatment of patients in orthopaedics, and the use of technology has never been greater than it is at present. Today you can choose from a large and ever increasing variety of devices. For instance, twenty-five years ago there was only one type of artificial hip and today there are more than sixty. This rapid development has considerable implications for all those working in the fields of orthopaedics, biomechanics, sports and rehabilitation.
This programme aims to provide you with an early understanding of the principles involved in the development and application of orthopaedic technology, orthopaedic biomechanics and sports biomechanics. In your future career, you may even find that you can make a contribution to the development, implementation and evaluation of new technology.
There is the real opportunity whilst studying your BMSc with us of presenting your research at conferences throughout the country and publishing your findings in peer-review journals. Some research has also been highlighted in national and local media.
For entry to the BMSc (Hons) Intercalated course you must have successfully completed three years of an undergraduate medical degree (MBChB/MBBS etc) or two years of an undergraduate dental course (BDS).
