MSc Taught Programme

We provide academic training in the sciences underlying musculoskeletal diseases to practising clinicians.

Our programme is designed to complement any post-graduate clinical teaching that students may be receiving in their specialist training programme.

The course promotes an understanding of the ways in which research can be used to improve knowledge and treatment of musculoskeletal diseases. Completing the course will provide a firm foundation for students wishing to progress to full-time doctoral research.

The MSc is a part-time taught course running over two years. The next intake will be in October 2016.

Both the department and the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre (NOC) are internationally renowned for the quality of their clinical and academic work. Both institutes work closely and have been responsible for training of national and international orthopaedic surgeons for the past 60 years.
