Program overview

Operating Department Practitioners play an essential role in the delivery of services in the operating theatre.

To give you hands-on experience of working with patients, combined with plenty of opportunities to apply your theoretical knowledge in the operating theatre environment, you’ll spend approximately 50% of your time in clinical practice during the course of your studies. Your placements will take place at a variety of hospitals across Staffordshire and Shropshire.
