About

Accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons of England, this MSc Orthopaedic Science programme from University of Dundee covers the fundamental physical sciences relating to orthopaedic surgery and technology.

Overview

This MSc Orthopaedic Science programme from University of Dundee will give you a strong and wide-ranging understanding of the fundamental physical sciences relating to orthopaedic surgery, as well as developing your knowledge of modern treatment options for patients. This course takes place at the Ninewells Hospital.

You'll start by exploring the basic scientific principles supporting orthopaedic sciences. This includes rigid body mechanics and structural mechanics, which will give you an understanding of the basic mathematics and mechanics of motion and forces. Later in the course, you will be introduced to statistics and learn how to record and interpret data related to orthopaedic science.

Once you've covered the basics, you'll focus on biomechanics, covering skeletal and tissue mechanics, and you'll learn how these can be measured to identify and quantify disorders.

You'll then explore rehabilitation technology, looking at prosthetics, orthortics, and mobility aids. You'll learn about the design, fabrication and use of these devices, and how they are prescribed to patients following an evaluation of their condition. You will also learn how these devices work following surgery, with a more in-depth look at arthroplasty surgery, and consider implications of using particular devices as part of a treatment plan.

Careers

The course will prepare you for a research-focused clinical career in the NHS or academia, and can prepare you for entry into a clinical academic career path.
