MCh (Orth) Ian Smillie Roll of Honour

MCh (Orth) Ian Smillie Roll of Honour

Every year one student studying the MCh (Orth) Dundee course is awarded the Ian Smillie Class Award of Distinction

This class award of distinction is named after the late Professor Ian Smillie, who gained a worldwide reputation in knee surgery and the role of the meniscus, and is awarded annually to the student who has attained the highest overall mark for the year.

Professor Smillie was one of the first ‘super-specialists’ in Orthopaedic Surgery and far ahead of his time with his contributions going far beyond his expertise in knee surgery. In 2007 Professor Smillie was posthumously awarded the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine’s (AOSSM) highest honour - entry to the ‘AOSSM Hall of Fame’ for his significant contributions to the specialty of Sports Medicine, which is now on display at the Department of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery alongside the reflex hammer Professor Smillie used throughout his career. It is therefore fitting that his name lends itself to the outstanding MCh (Orth) candidate each year.
