You will gain:

  • a thorough theoretical and practical grounding in the science of external fixation of diaphyseal and metaphyseal fractures and deformity
  • a critical understanding of when and how to use this technique
  • an evidence-based appreciation of the risks and likely benefits of this compared with other treatment options.

This will contribute to the broader aim to influence clinicians to use a critical and scientifically robust approach to planning patient care. Students will have on-going access to other professionals during the period of the module in order to facilitate their learning
