UDOTS degrees re-accredited by RCS England
Two UDOTS degree courses have been re-accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons of England (RCSEng).
The Master of Orthopaedic Surgery (MCh Orth) and MSc in Orthopaedic Science degrees have been re-accredited by the RCSEng for a further three-year period. Both courses were originally accredited in 2012 and 2013, respectively.
The re-accreditation process is conducted every three years to assess and ensure the continued quality of the courses adhere to the exceptionally exacting standards expected by the RCSEng.
The Royal College viewed all the documentation constructively including the documents indicating work done in the preceding years to build upon the course, a significant increase in clinical input for teaching and an increased number of workshops undertaken and those planned since last year, positive feedback from Masters’ students at the end of the term of 2020 and very favourable internal and external examiner comments during the examining committee meeting for MCh (Orth) in June 2020.
“The re-accreditation from the Royal College is extremely important for our courses, the School of Medicine, and the University as a whole,” stated Mr Arpit Jariwala, Director of UDOTS. “The re-accreditation shows our continued efforts to improve these already world-renowned degrees and highlights the dedication of the small Team here at UDOTS, our excellent teaching faculty and the external lecturers who continue to support the courses and champion and promote an unrivalled orthopaedic teaching experience. We look forward to our continued working relationship with the RCSEng in the future.”
