  • Course description
    MSc Evidence-based Medicine (Orthopaedics)

    The course is aimed at medical graduates who are committed to a career in orthopaedics. This will be demonstrated through the completion of appropriate qualifications, eg Member of the Royal College of Surgeons for orthopaedic surgery trainees. A core component of the course is the opportunity to accredit knowledge and skills gained in practice.

    Course structure
    Modules focus upon evidence-based practice, research design, statistics, change management and orthopaedics. In addition you may choose an option from a range of master’s level modules.

    You'll enhance your ability to implement evidence-based practice and undertake research in orthopaedics.

    More information

    Clinical Sciences in Orthopaedics and Trauma
    The module introduces you to the concepts underpinning clinical practice. It includes the behaviour of the relevant tissues (bone, cartilage, muscles, tendons, nerves) in health and disease; biomechanical considerations including managing fractures and replacing joints; relevant materials sciences for managing fractures and replacing joints; investigations and their limitations; and other concepts including controlling infection and controlling exposure to ionising radiation. This module places emphasis on the evidence base underpinning current practice such as using antibiotic prophylaxis, clean air enclosures, and a selection of investigations and management options.

    Delivering Change in a Culture of Audit
    The current audit and inspection culture has developed over the last two decades and is especially evident in the NHS. In this module you will examine this culture as the context for attempts to facilitate change. You will also look at generic theory on managing change along with empirical studies of the effectiveness of various approaches. he module generally runs online, although it could be offered as an attendance course if there was enough demand.

    Designing Research Projects
    This module will provide you with the necessary knowledge and skills to design and manage relevant quantitative and qualitative research projects.

    This module enables you to complete an independent research project.

    Evidence-based Practice
    The evidence-based practice module develops skills in studying at master’s level, enabling you to make the transition to postgraduate study. It also introduces you to the key concept of evidence-based practice within a health and social care setting. Throughout the module you will develop practical skills in searching literature, critically evaluating and managing change. You will be able to focus these skills to your own specialist area of practice within the assignment.

    Practical Statistics
    This module will provide you with a solid grounding in the statistical concepts needed for analysing basic health and medical data. The content provides an overview of the basic concepts in statistics. You will progress from understanding basic fundamentals up to multivariate analysis.

    Work-based Learning
    The aim of this module is to allow postgraduate medical doctors to accredit learning developed in clinical practice. It is available to medical staff from diverse specialisms who are looking for a way to accredit practice-based learning as part of an approved master’s programme.
