Rotation Highlights

The South East London deanery is one of the smallest geographically deaneries in the UK boasting access to leading edge orthopaedic facilities and top-quality trainers. The deanery is proud to provide exceptional rotation structure, education, research and fellowships.

The rotations are inclusive and systematic in all desired orthopaedic sub-specialties. There is opportunity to experience world class rotations in the Paediatric Evelina children’s hospital, King’s College London major trauma centre and the Guy’s Orthopaedic elective centre of excellence.

We work closely with our neighbouring deaneries in KSS and South West London to facilitate collaborative teaching sessions from top tier internationally recognised trainers. The education format of symposiums, workshops and mock viva are specific to the FRCS requirements. This provides a solid foundation for trainees to exhibit triumphant results in the national examinations and, success at achieving their desired consultant posts.

The scope for research is plentiful within the deanery and many of the smaller district general hospitals are enrolled in national collaborative projects yielding meaningful outcomes presented at an international level. The King’s Orthopaedic Research and Education (K.O.R.E.) foundation aims to provide national courses with industry leading simulation challenging trainees of all grades.

Guy’s hospital offers distinguished fellowships in Hip Arthroplasty that focuses on young adult hip and Spine fellowship that is associated with the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. King’s College Hospital displays premiere fellowships in Advanced Trauma and Lower Limb Reconstruction.
