Forthcoming Courses and Conferences

Wrightington Hospital is a world leader in orthopaedic surgery and every year holds many dedicated training courses.

These courses are available to all relevant areas of medical and non-medical professions depending upon the nature of the information and content that will be delivered.

Current and forthcoming courses and conferences available are shown below.

Basic Science and Upper Limb FRCS courses: 

 1. The course is aimed at candidates who have passed part 1 of the exam and are as such ready to appear for the clinical section of the exam.
 2. Due to the high demand on this course a limited number of observer places may be offered depending upon the discretion of the Convener. This will attract a charge of £100 per course.

Accommodation information is also available at the bottom of this page.
