DEPARTMENT OF ORTHOPAEDICS, TRAUMATOLOGY & REHABILITATION


The Department of Orthopaedics, Traumatology and Rehabilitation is primarily involved in the teaching of the undergraduate programme through a major10 week posting in phase III (Year 4) of the medical programme. Even during the 1st and 2nd year, a few basic aspects of orthopaedics are taught such as the anatomy of the musculoskeletal system. This 10 week programme will introduces an integrated approach to the disciplines of orthopaedics, traumatology and rehabilitation. The purpose is not to teach orthopaedics as a speciality per se but rather to appreciate it as one facet in the spectrum of musculoskeletal disorders. During this posting, the students will gain the basic knowledge of orthopaedic problems, trauma, rehabilitation and related disorders.

Our motto denotes our commitment to be a leader in the basic orthopaedic sciences and also to develop a world class academic environment within the department. It is our aim to be a leading Orthopaedics Department within this region. This commitment is also reflected in our Vision. To achieve this Vision we have partaken 4 Mission statements that will help to give direction to the development of the Department’s activities, staff and facilities.
