This course is designed to provide learners with knowledge and skills in clinical orthopaedics to improve the management of elective and traumatic orthopaedic conditions involving the knee.

This course covers history taking, examination, investigation, arriving at a differential diagnosis and then planning management (both non-operative and operative) for conditions around the knee. It includes the management of both traumatic (both accidental and sporting injuries), infection, inflammation and degenerative (osteoarthritic) conditions around the knee. The course will include simulated training in arthroscopic surgery and open surgery of the knee joint including total knee replacement.
