The Musculoskeletal Research Unit at the University of Bristol is delighted to announce our new MSc in Orthopaedic Surgery for entry to the 2019/20 cohort, starting in September 2019.

This part-time programme has been developed in collaboration with Trauma & Orthopaedic trainees to ensure it fits perfectly in with Higher Specialist Training and consists of three main elements:

  • Research Methods Training: Monthly training days to be held at the Learning and Research Building, Southmead Hospital and delivered by our specialist researchers with great experience of orthopaedic research. All learning material will also be accessible remotely on our virtual learning environment if you cannot make the session.
  • Clinical Elements: Candidates will work with allocated clinical tutors to look at evidence-based practice in each of their six-month rotations.
  • Research Project: In collaboration with one of our expert team, candidates will produce a piece of research; which in addition to forming the MSc thesis may also be submitted to journals for publication.

Assessment will be through the maintenance of a reflective diary, after research methods training sessions, a poster/oral presentation for each clinical rotation and the production of a research project. There are no formal written examinations.

The Musculoskeletal Research unit, headed by Prof Ashley Blom has a track record of high-level Trauma, Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal research including the analysis of the National Joint Registry and National Hip Fracture Database.
