Mr Harvinder Singh paid his first visit to the TORT Centre as a visiting faculty member today to teach on the Master of Orthopaedic Surgery (MCh Orth) course at the TORT Centre (2nd November 2015). Mr Singh lectured on wrist biomechanics, wrist osteoarthritis and its surgical management.

He completed his orthopaedic training in India and subsequently at Leicester as a Higher Surgical Trainee working with the likes of Professor Joe Dias (past president of British Orthopaedic Association). After his Orthopaedic training he undertook an Upper Limb Fellowship at the world famous Wrightington Upper Limb Unit followed by a prestigious fellowship in Hand Surgery in Australia with Professor Tonkin. He has extensively published his research in high quality orthopaedic journals. He worked on wrist biomechanics and kinematic changes in wrist arthritis and its surgical management and was granted a PhD for his work in July 2015.

Professor Rami Abboud, Director of the MCh (Orth) degree stated: “I would like to pay tribute to Mr Arpit Jariwala, Deputy Director of the MCh (Orth) Course and PG Clinical Lead at the department for introducing Mr Singh as a new external faculty member on our MCh course and to thank Mr Singh for coming to Dundee for the first time to part his knowledge to our orthopaedic surgeons. It just shows that we continually appraise and evolve this MCh (Orth) course by inviting the newest wave of orthopaedic specialists and in doing so bring new insights in orthopaedics to our candidates. I hope he will continue to lecture each year and become an intrinsic element to an already impressive taugt syllabus by a Faculty of world renowned lecturers.”

Dr Farhan Alam, who is studying his MSc in Orthopaedic Science stated: "Mr Singh's lecture was one of the best lectures that I have attended in this MSc program so far. We had a very interactive session with Mr. Singh and he lectured us on anatomy, mechanics, clinical examination, investigation and treatment of different wrist conditions. I think this was the general opinion among all the students and I hope we have similar sessions in the future."
