Mr Arpit Jariwala, Director of UDOTS (pictured top right with Mr Kumar) stated:

“Over the past few weeks we have had the great pleasure of welcoming several eminent Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons to teach on our MCh (Orth) Dundee degree. Mr Kapil Kumar has been a supporter of the course and is hugely involved in teaching and training as Lead for Scottish Training interviews and also for his now involvement with the Royal College of Edinburgh for International students. He is keen to collaborate with the UDOTS for future teaching, training and research opportunity.

It is by attracting such luminaries onto our visiting teaching Faculty that the course continues to be accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons’ of England. We are constantly striving to attract the very best orthopaedic educators whilst continuing to welcome surgeons who have been lecturing on the course for many years.”
