Operating Department Practice BSc

The BSc Operating Department Practice course aims to prepare you for the demands of clinical practice and provide you with a platform for a rewarding career in operating departments and other medical settings.

Operating Department Practitioners are registered health professionals who work both autonomously and as skilled members of an inter-professional team. They ensure infection control and safety standards are met, monitor patients’ vital signs and manage patients’ pain. During surgery, they are responsible for monitoring equipment and disposables.

Our three-year course combines university study with clinical placements, working alongside practising professionals and with patients. Through a vibrant interdisciplinary environment we aim to supply a shared learning, inter-professional education which is not available at many institutions. The degree aims to prepare you for clinical practice, and enables you to continue learning beyond registration, promoting continuous improvement in patient care.
