Undergraduate Medical Education

Working in partnership with the University of Birmingham, each year up to 480 fourth-year medical students complete a two week musculoskeletal placement at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital. And from 2020, we welcome up to 120 Aston Medical School students, who will undertake their musculoskeletal and a new peri-operative medicine placement. One of the unique and highly regarded teaching opportunities the Trust offers during the medical student placement is Patient Simulated Teaching (SIMS).
