The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Training Rotation is one of UK’s most prestigious orthopaedic registrar training rotations. It was recently rated as one of the top ten best hospitals for Orthopaedics in the world.
This orthopaedic training programme has over 40 trainees with training hospitals throughout North, Central and East London providing direct access to the full range of Trauma and Orthopaedic specialties. This offers our trainees a unique insight into the whole breath of trauma and orthopaedics during their training and they also have an opportunity to spend 12 months at the UK’s largest tertiary orthopaedic centre, Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore.
Education and research is a high priority within this rotation with many trainees undertaking MDs and PhDs and it is also known for its high success rate in the FRCS (Orth) examination.
ABOUT THE REP
I am a ST5 Trauma and Orthopaedic registrar on the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Stanmore Training rotation. I am a pharmacist turned orthopod, completing my graduate entry medical programme at the University of Leicester followed by foundation and core surgical training in the Oxford Deanery. I am passionate about healthcare leadership and education. I have completed higher training in medical education at the University of Dundee and currently teach at the Anglia Ruskin School of Medicine. I volunteered to be the BOTA regional representative as I have always been keen to represent and improve the standards of training for trainees in orthopaedic surgery.
