TORT Centre welcomes new students
Professor Rami Abboud and his team at the TORT Centre today warmly welcomed the 2017-2018 intake of students to the Department of Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery. Forty new arrivals from eight different countries and cultural backgrounds are studying the following courses run by the department:
- Master of Orthopaedic Surgery (MCh Orth)
- Intercalated BMSc in Applied Orthopaedic Technology
- MRes in Sports Biomechanics and Rehabilitation
- MSc in Motion Analysis
- MSc in Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Technology
Professor Abboud introduced the students to the teaching faculty and support staff before Dr Graham Arnold and Mr Sadiq Nasir gave them a whistle-stop tour of the TORT Centre and its teaching suites, the Institute of Motion Analysis and Research and its laboratory facilities and Ninewells Hospital and Medical School and Library.
A buffet lunch was then laid on for students and staff to mingle and discuss their respective backgrounds, the facilities at the TORT Centre, the courses and any proposed ideas for research projects in an informal and relaxed manner.
Professor Abboud stated:
“It is always an exciting time welcoming our new arrivals. I would like to say a huge welcome to all our new students for 2017-2018. It is a great testament to the small dedicated team here at TORT that we can offer such wide-ranging and diverse research-based courses to nearly 50 in-house students when PhDs are included".
"I am very much looking forward to working with each and every one of you this year and in making your time here in Dundee as enjoyable as possible. I am proud to say we run an open-door policy for students so please feel free to contact us at any time. I am sure you will all enjoy the culture and hospitality Dundee and Scotland have to offer and I personally look forward to you successfully becoming valued Alumni in the future. Remember, ‘the more you put in the more you will get out’ of your time here at the University of Dundee.”
