Miller's Orthopaedic Review Course Programme

The October 2017 Clinical & Viva course is the same format as the Advanced Clinical Examination & Viva for FRCS (Tr & Orth) Course listed below as part of Miller UK 2018.

The Millers Orthopaedic Review Course (UK) is a four day orthopaedic review course, which is followed by the optional Advanced Clinical Examination & Viva Course (as detailed above).

All lecturers will be experienced Consultants or Fellows with the FRCS (Tr & Orth) examination who have been selected for their extensive teaching experience and good communication skills; the majority will be Fellowship trained specifically in the lectures that they are delivering.

We will be confirming the programme in due course but to give you a better understanding of the course structure, topics covered and calibre of faculty, please see our previous course programme below. You can expect at least the same high standard for our 2018 course.
