Programme Structure Year 1 Academic modules will explore research and teaching methodology, whilst enabling students to develop the ability to analyse published evidence and enhance their interactive and written clinical communication skills. Students will also have the opportunity to complete an academic research project in Year 2 e.g. Original research or a Systematic Review in a relevant area of work. Following completion of the programme, students are encouraged to seek publication of their study in a peer-reviewed journal. Year 2 Compulsory modules cover the core elements of the subsections of the orthopaedic syllabus. These are taught and assessed using a clinical problem-based approach, supported by systems-based review of the course material. Having gained experience from the academic modules in the previous year, students will be expected to critically analyse reference material and where appropriate relate to their own work.
