Postgraduate Diploma in Knee Surgery (Part time)
Our e-learning Masters course, developed with support from the British Association for Surgery of the Knee (BASK), is a flexible and innovative training programme which will help you to achieve your goals. Currently this is the only programme that will provide documented evidence that will qualify you as a knee specialist.
Our philosophy is to promote setting standards at this specialist level, whilst accommodating your individual progression path. Our aim is to prepare, assess and qualify you for a specialist knee practice. We shall do this through a combination of rigorous and engaging on-line activities and practical assessment of your surgical, communication and decision-making skills.
Supporting flexible study patterns is more important than ever when balancing working time directives with the highest quality training. The University of East Anglia (UEA) Master of Knee Surgery course meets this challenge. It offers added advantages over face-to-face delivery. Our bespoke, flexible approach offers excellent opportunities for problem-based training and assessment, access to a large specialist faculty, seamless communication with e-tutors/mentors, access to online resources, and evidence of progress and development.
