Observership at SORI
The SORI Observership is designed around a structured 4 week programme.
You will gain experience on each aspect of patient care from initial presentation and consultation, through to surgery and outpatient follow-up. A broad range of both acute and elective knee disorders will be covered. The aim of the program is to provide you with comprehensive patient pathways for the most common knee conditions – OA, lower limb malalignment, ACL rupture, chondral damage, and meniscal injuries.
Alongside learning from the senior surgeons, there will be opportunities to observe and assist the clinical and research staff, learning how modern techniques are developing the patient pathway. This will include pre-operative planning and a variety of different outcome measurements such as MRI analysis, motion capture, gait analysis, and return-to-sport assessments.
