About this program

Orthopaedic Science (Distance Learning) MSc

Science and technology are integral to the treatment of patients in orthopaedics and rehabilitation. This course will give you a strong and wide-ranging understanding of the fundamental physical sciences relating to orthopaedic surgery, as well as developing your knowledge of modern treatment options for patients.

You'll start by exploring the basic scientific principles supporting orthopaedic sciences. This includes rigid body mechanics and structural mechanics, which will give you an understanding of the basic mathematics and mechanics of motion and forces. Later in the course, you will be introduced to statistics and learn how to record and interpret data related to orthopaedic science.

Once you've covered the basics, you'll focus on biomechanics, covering skeletal and tissue mechanics, and you'll learn how these can be measured to identify and quantify disorders.

You'll then explore rehabilitation technology, looking at prosthetics, orthortics, and mobility aids. You'll learn about the design, fabrication and use of these devices, and how they are prescribed to patients following an evaluation of their condition. You will also learn how these devices work following surgery, with a more in-depth look at arthroplasty surgery, and consider implications of using particular devices as part of a treatment plan.

You'll complete the course by undertaking a research project in a relevant area of orthopaedic sciences and will be assessed by dissertation and and a viva.
