Dr Pradyumna Raval

Specialty Doctor in Trauma and Orthopaedics, Wishaw General Hospital, Lanarkshire, UK - MCh Orth, Dundee, Graduate and Clinical Assistance Award (2015)

Photographic ImageThey say that “time flies when you’re having fun” and it is so true. I still remember my first day at the MCh (Orth) Dundee course and today I’m writing a testimonial about it! I strongly feel this course is by far the most comprehensive MCh (Orth) course available in the world today. Not only are all aspects of Orthopaedics well covered but also certain topics such as biomechanics and statistics are taught very well indeed. The academic writing classes are equally important, especially for those candidates who aspire to write clinically relevant articles in high impact orthopaedic journals.

Each candidate is allotted to his preferred sub-speciality. I had opted for upper limb and was allocated to Mr. Jariwala’s unit. It was indeed a great learning experience for me. I started being an observer and over a short span of time was assisting in all major cases both on the trauma and elective side. During my time in Dundee I wrote four research articles and submitted two abstracts to upcoming orthopaedic meetings in the UK.

Dr Ranat R. Vishnoi

Consultant Trauma and Arthroplasty, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India - MCh Orth, Dundee, Graduate (2015)

Photographic ElementI think “In this era of medical practice, providing the utmost recent and best-proven option to our patients is a basic prerequisite for an orthopaedic surgeon”. To fulfil my ambition, after completing my orthopaedic training and working as a junior consultant in trauma and arthroplasty, I was suggested this course by previous alumni’s of MCh (Orth) Dundee. Now after successfully completing the course and pursuing my arthroplasty fellowship in England, I would highly recommend this course as a must for all budding orthopaedicians after their basic orthopaedic training.

Professor Abboud has structured MCh (Orth) in such a manner that it includes each and every aspect that are missing from our orthopaedic training. It’s a blend of Masters and PhD degree that even gives liberty to choose a research project or design your own implant under preferred supervisors. Lectures are well planned, highly interactive, and contain all recent proposed guidelines, which are dictated by world-renowned faculty members. This course provides plenty of opportunities like assisting in theatres, performing cadaveric/dry bone workshops using the latest instruments, attending conferences, publications and giving presentations. I am grateful to all the staff of the TORT Centre for their conscientious support, and treating us like their family. I feel honoured to be a part of this esteemed MCh (Orth) Dundee fraternity, in its second decade.

Dr Paras Gupta

Joint Replacement Fellow, New Delhi, India - MCh Orth, Dundee, Graduate (2015)


Photographic ElementMCh (Orth) at the University of Dundee is a special course from several perspectives. Although there is no doubt that it is as prestigious as it can get, only those who have done it will realise that it is a confluence of various sciences which gives it a special flavour. As an orthopaedic surgeon, there are times when you forget that the various injuries and diseases are not only an organic phenomenon, but a combination of biomechanical and chemical processes. Thus the basic sciences form the foundation of this course. It's about venturing into the lesser known territories in orthopaedic pathology, with cutting edge technology and innovation. It's no surprise that the research forms the major chunk of the MCh curriculum. You understand the things which separate a great research paper from an ordinary one and this knowledge is shared not in between the lines but is taught more objectively. Formal lectures along with operating theatre exposure is topped by the clinical workshops in joint arthroplasty and navigation. Such a comprehensive syllabus, which is superbly organised, taught by an excellent faculty, high quality research and a prestigious degree makes this course an ultimate career goal for any orthopaedic surgeon.

Dr Calvin Mathias

Photographic elementThe Dundee MCh (Orth) course provides a unique experience outside the traditional norm of orthopaedic training. The course is structured perfectly with an impeccable blend of lectures, scientific research work and a clinical attachment of your choice. Several course lectures, given by eminent orthopaedic surgeons of all sub-specialities, are eye-opening in terms of the insights gleaned. Special emphasis is given to developing a clear understanding of the basic sciences and biomechanics, which should be the foundation of every aspiring orthopaedic trainee.

My personal experience at the MCh (Orth) course was outstanding. Professor Rami Abboud and his dedicated staff are geared towards academic excellence. They instill confidence, provide guidance and inspiration to every MCh (Orth) student, allowing you to achieve your full potential. The implant I designed for my research was submitted for a patent application, enabling me to become an inventor, a personal achievement I have dreamed of for many years. Exposure to such cutting-edge research work at the TORT Centre was my source of inspiration, and the support of the ever-smiling faculty was instrumental to my achievements this year at the University. I even had the honour of receiving the prestigious 'Ian Smillie' and 'David Rowley' awards. My decision to study this MCh (Orth) course in Dundee was the best career move I've made, one that has helped me develop professionally and given me a new confidence that I will carry for the rest of my career.

I am proud to be an MCh (Orth) degree holder, and would recommend this course to anyone who wishes to enrich their orthopaedic career. I not only have an excellent new group of colleagues from Ninewells Hospital and the University of Dundee, but also a great set of life-long friends.

Dr Vinod Vaishnav

Consultant Orthopaedic and Joint Replacement Surgeon, Mumbai - MCh Orth, Dundee, Graduate and Ian Kelly Scientific Communication Award (2015)

Photographic ElementI had an international experience with my previous joint replacement fellowships from USA, England and Germany; however the MCh (Orth) Dundee UK course was the best amongst them. The MCh (Orth) Dundee, is a very well structured, comprehensive and unique course. The special features of this course include clinical attachment in operation theaters, excellent national and international teaching faculty, covering all topics of orthopaedics including those which are usually not taught to Indian postgraduate students in detail such as foot and ankle biomechanics, orthotics and prosthetics and advanced joint arthroplasty.

Teaching in the form of clinical attachments, lectures, workshops and conferences is at its best in Dundee. Research forms a basic component of this course and allows you to choose any topic of specific interest. Completion of this course was definitely an achievement for me personally. Receiving the Ian Kelly Scientific Award for my research has added to my credentials. Apart from adding value to my CV, it provides an overall development as an orthopaedic surgeon thereby opening doors for professional success. I would recommend this course, which has a successful history of more than 20 years, to all orthopaedic surgeons who wish to learn orthopaedics on a different level.

Dr Vikram Arun Mhaskar

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Knee & Shoulder Clinic, New Delhi, India - MCh Orth, Dundee, Graduate and David Rowley Presentation Skills Award (2013)

Photographic ElementThe Dundee MCh (Orth) course is an experience no orthopaedic surgeon should miss if he or she desires professional excellence. The course inculcates a desire to excel as a research oriented orthopaedic surgeon well versed with the latest techniques of surgery that is extremely important to succeed in life.

The staff in the department are very friendly, helpful and approachable making life as smooth as possible during the course. I would go onto say that the course is a stepping stone to reach greater heights as a decisive, confident orthopaedic surgeon. I have some of my fondest memories in life during my stay in Dundee and my interactions with Professor Abboud and hope the course continues to produce gems in the field of orthopaedic surgery.

Dr Nirmalya Deb

Consultant Lower Limb Arthroplasty and Arthroscopy Surgeon, Kolkata, West Bengal, India - MCh Orth, Dundee, Graduate and David Rowley Presentation Skills Award (2012)

Photographic ElementMy ultimate goal was to achieve the MCh Orth degree after completion of my MSc Orth degree from the University of Dundee. I found that the MCh Orth course was equally interesting as my MSc Orth course – beginning with basics like mechanics and biomechanical applications and progressing further to clinical medicine. One of the unique features of this course is the clinical attachment to a senior consultant where one can participate in surgeries as well as in the clinics which is useful in learning more about the system and practice of medicine in the NHS, UK. Further, the lab-based projects are well designed to add an extra insight to one’s already existing clinical acumen and analytic capacity, which is extremely valuable. Additionally the lectures by renowned surgeons in the UK and abroad are aptly conceived to cover a wide variety of topics which is highly beneficial in the day-to-day practice.  I am delighted to learn that the MCh Orth course has recently gained accreditation from the Royal College of Surgeons of England which I hope, will encourage more surgeons from India and abroad to apply for this prestigious course.

Dr Tanveer Singh Bhutani

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon - MCh Orth, Dundee, Graduate and Ian Kelly Scientific Communication Award (2012)

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to be an MCh Orth student at the University of Dundee. This course is a comprehensive training and research program in orthopaedics, which also comprises a hospital attachment with your own allocated Consultant in Ninewells Hospital, UK. Being a part of the course helped open my eyes to new frontiers in orthopaedics such as total ankle replacement, total elbow replacement, anatomical ACL reconstructions, MPFL reconstructions and chondroplasty.
There is a huge emphasis placed on research, the methods and principles to be adhered to, and how to write an effective research paper and produce a scientific conference poster. Carrying out research has now become a habit that has been inculcated in me forever, thanks to the training and inspiration I received as a student at the University of Dundee.
Being an Alumnus of the University of Dundee has its own unique charm, and has helped my career to further develop personally and professionally. It has helped bring a level of professionalism, poise, and confidence to my everyday practice that I don’t think would otherwise have been possible. I am glad to have had the opportunity to be a part of the MCh Orth legacy, and I think anyone who is lucky enough to get accepted onto the course, should grasp the opportunity with both hands. I am a proud to say that I am part of Dundee University and keep going back to my professors, consultants and staff at Ninewells Hospital for advice, guidance and for the joy of lifelong friendships.

Dr Manish Kiran

Upper Limb Fellow, Bedford hospital, England - MCh Orth, Dundee, Graduate and Ian Smillie Class Award of Distinction for best overall student (2012)

Photographic ElementThe MCh Orth course at Dundee is a structured and comprehensive postgraduate orthopaedic course, the only one of its kind to be offered full-time for international orthopaedic surgeons. It is well respected all over the world for the quality of education and the strict criteria for admission and completion, putting surgeons who have have done the course ahead of their peers.

I had the opportunity to listen to lectures by some of the best surgeons and teachers in each sub-speciality of orthopaedics from around the UK, which I think is unique to the programme. I learnt how to write research papers during the series of lectures on academic writing. I had the opportunity to work with some of the best surgeons during my time in theatre, wherein I learnt the nuances of joint replacement, arthroscopy and upper limb surgery. The course covered most of the curriculum for the FRCS (Tr&Orth) exam. I realised this when I scored almost equal to the candidates about to take up the Part 1 exam, in a mock exam for trainees conducted all over the UK before the actual exams.

The faculty under Professor Rami Abboud are dedicated and constantly inspired me to do better, which culminated in me winning the prestigious Ian Smillie award. This helped me get a fellowship in lower limb arthroplasty at Ninewells Hospital and subsequently my present upper limb fellowship at Bedford. I would thoroughly recommend this course to every orthopaedic surgeon, for the totality of the learning experience.

Dr Dhiraj Marothi

Arthroplasty Surgeon, Shalby Hospital, Ahmedabad, India) - MCh Orth, Dundee, Graduate (2009)

Photographic ElementIn 2009-2010 while pursuing my masters of Orthopaedics Surgery in Dundee, I was clinically attached with Mr AS Jain where I was exposed to specialty in lower limb reconstruction as well as foot and ankle and attended to OPD and indoor patients. I did my research project on "How much have we lowered our threshold for patient selection for hip arthroplasty in the last 10 years?". The MCh, Dundee course gave me a sound grounding in basic knowledge of orthopaedics and trauma surgery. I enjoyed my time in Dundee and on successfully completing my degree there I stayed for a further six more months working in Ninewells Hospital. During this tenure I got selected in Brigand Wales because of clinical experience of UK. Meanwhile I got call from Shalby Hospitals, India. In the last four years, I have done more than 3000 knee replacements. I personally feel the specialised MCh experience helped greatly in advancing my career in India.

I consider this to be the most important and highly essential course for one to achieve excellence in the field of orthopaedics. I had an opportunity to work with some of the best surgeons in the UK during the training period.

Dr Rajesh Garg

Consultant Orthopaedic Joint Replacement Surgeon, Max Hospital, Delhi, Tirath Ram Shah Hospital, Delhi - MCh Orth, Dundee, Graduate and Ian Smillie Class Award of Distinction for best overall student (2007)

Photographic ElementMy learning experience in Dundee in 2007 was a fantastic journey. It took me two years to gain admission onto the MCh (Orth) course due to the huge volume of applicants but it was well worth the wait as the course was better than all my expectations. There were continuous academic lectures (something lacking during our postgraduate training) by an incredible faculty. There were days allotted for lectures and also operating theatre days during which I attended and assisted various surgeries including joint replacement, arthroscopy and spinal surgery. During theatre time I learnt all the finer details and the 'tricks of the trade' that I now apply to my own flourishing practice of joint replacement surgery. I arrived in Dundee from India with my wife and nine-month old daughter. We got comfortable accommodation in the university itself so that my family didn't get bored during their stay. There were lot of activities and functions arranged by the Dundee University Student Association (DUSA) so that during our entire stay we were made to feel very welcome. I left Dundee having added to both my surgical and social skills and also with the prized MCH (Orth), Dundee degree which helped to kick-start my orthopaedic career back home in 2007.

Photographic ElementThe MCh (Orth) course in Dundee, UK is unique as it offers comprehensive orthopaedic experience essential for orthopaedic surgeons looking to gain further specialist knowledge and skills in addition to a UK qualification. Excellent teaching faculty, diverse lectures, numerous orthopaedic workshops and extremely helpful staff are the highlights of this course.

In addition to gaining a UK qualification, the course helped me gain a place on the Higher Orthopaedic training rotation in UK and fully supported me for my present Upper Limb Fellowship at the prestigious Wrightington Hospital.

Professor and Medical Director, Sancheti Orthopaedic Institute, Pune, India) MCh Orth, Dundee, Graduate and Presentation Skills Award (2003)

Photographic ElementCompleting the MCh (Orth) course in Dundee, UK, was one of the ultimate achievements in my career. In my opinion this particular MCh Orth course is worth the time and money spent. I strongly recommend this course for enhancing all-round development in orthopaedics and also for sharpening research and academic communication skills with special emphasis on producing a well written and structured dissertation for peer review publication. Gaining the Dundee MCh Orth degree, which is a foreign qualification, will also add value to your CV and improve your job prospects and orthopaedic career. I consider it as an essential course for all orthopaedic surgeons who aspire to achieve orthopaedic excellence.

Dr Syed Aftab Ahmad

Shoulder Fellow, Seoul National University, Bundang Hospital) - MCh Orth, Dundee, Graduate and Ian Smillie Class Award of Distinction for best overall student (2002)

Photographic ElementAlthough my MCh (Orth) Dundee wasn't my first international exposure, it was definitely the best. My journey and my stay were going to be the experience of a lifetime with beautiful memories I continue to cherish. The learning experience was great and the staff members were even better. Seeing the well-developed structured program covering a range of clinical and research topics, I realized how much more I was required to know in my chosen profession. Although most of us had written a thesis before, it was only after starting the Academic English classes that I gathered how little I knew about this skill; learning academic writing, referencing and paper presentation as per international standards. To me, Dundee wasn't only about studies and work it was about sharing ideas, cultures and making new lifelong friendships. The work and teaching culture was so different to my experiences in India. I could never have imagined having a constructive 'argument' with my mentor back home. I suspect it is a cultural issue that we are trained to remain docile and not to question our esteemed professors. Albert Einstein stated that the biggest hindrance in intellectual development is to believe in your teachers blindly without asking "Why?" The most important lesson I learnt in Dundee is that I learnt to ask "Why?"

...although my MCh (Orth) Dundee wasn't my first international exposure, it was definitely the best. The learning experience was great and the staff members were even better.

Mr Sanjay V. Sonanis

Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Bronglais General Hospital, Aberystwyth - MCh Orth Graduate (1997)

It gives me a great pleasure in providing a testimony for MCh Orthopaedic at Dundee University, which I completed in 1997.  The department was headed by Professor Rowley and Professor Rami Abboud, Department of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery, and Institute of Biomechanics & Motion Analysis and Research.
It was an eye opening institute which had the latest technologies available at Dundee University for the MCh Orthopaedic course, especially involving foot plate measurements and gait analysis by Professor Rami Abboud with innovative publications.
I travelled to Dundee from Yorkshire, and stayed in excellent University accommodation, with the latest facilities.  The course was attended by people from various countries, with explicit lectures. We visited various orthopaedic departments around Dundee.  We were able to pick up a thesis topic of our own interest, supervised by the Professors at the University. Apart from orthopaedic, it also taught me more about clinical audit and research, which subsequently helped me to write more than 30 papers, now sighted in orthopaedics text books in UK and USA.   It also opened more horizons in understanding the 3D structure of bone and implants. It also inspired me to   develop an special interest in CAD designing in 1998, turning orthopaedic ideas into reality, with new ideas and writing patents.
It is an excellent institution for orthopaedic training under experienced teachers.
