Intercalated BMSc (Hons) in Applied Orthopaedic Technology

Why study your BMSc with us?

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.

The course is made up of lectures, tutorials, four groups of self-directed modules and a project in a relevant field of interest. The Department of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery offers:

  • Stimulating and cutting-edge research topics
  • Great opportunities to publish your research
  • World-renowned teaching faculty
  • Fantastic interlinked sports, foot, and gait analysis laboratories
  • Friendly and supportive environment
  • Unrivalled course support
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, the following study on therapeutic horse riding being a prime example when it appeared on STV News.
