The Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre (NOC) is a world-renowned centre for the diagnosis, investigation, treatment and management of all aspects of musculoskeletal disease.

The hip and knee team is a multidisciplinary group consisting of eight consultants, fellows, specialist registrars and junior doctors as well as specialist physiotherapists.

Each year there are three fellowships offered within the team. These are intended for post FRCS (Orth) trainees planning a future career in hip and knee surgery and are funded by the hospital. Each Fellowship is for six months but is extendable to twelve months, subject to satisfactory progress.

The team covers all aspects of the treatment of knee and hip pathology. Therefore, fellowships can be tailored to the needs and expectations of the applicant to a certain extent . There is also the possibility of training in musculoskeletal oncology, as the NOC is one of only six NSCAG funded tumour centres in the country.

As well as treating patients, the NOC is well-known for its research and academic achievements. It has strong links with the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, The University of Oxford and industry.

Successful applicants will be expected to become integrated members of the team involved in the day-to-day care of patients on the wards, outpatient clinics and theatres. They will also be expected to complete at least one research paper to a national presentable level, publishable in a peer-reviewed journal.

Successful candidates have come from the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and North America.
