A lecture at the Institute of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Science, Stanmore

The UCL Institute of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Science (IOMS), within the UCL Division of Surgery & Interventional Science, UCL Faculty of Medical Science teaches a number of courses to undergraduate and postgraduate students. IOMS offers an IBSc in Orthopaedic Science for UCL medical students in their third year. IOMS has two post graduate taught courses, the MSc in Musculoskeletal Science which is offered on a full time, flexible and distance learning basis and an MSc in Trauma and Orthopaedics which combines with the existing NE London Higher Surgical Training programme. Both of these courses combine teaching and research.

IOMS has started a Doc ORTH programme (Professional Doctorate in Orthopaedics) which is designed to train the next generation of academic orthopaedic surgeons. This programme brings together all three elements of training under one professional doctoral programme:

  1. A taught element
  2. A reflective clinical competence
  3. High quality research.

It complements clinical training, up-regulating the scientific and ORIGINAL research content. Combined with the existing Higher Surgical Training programme, this course offers students both an excellent preparation for FRCS (Orth) and a doctorate with an original research element. In addition to these courses IOMS offers postgraduate research programmes offering students an MPhil/PhD programme and an MD (Res) programme both full time and part time
