Operating Department Practice BSc (Hons)
This is a three-year full-time course which has been developed by the University of Hull in collaboration with the local NHS trusts and meets the growing demand for perioperative healthcare professionals in this area.
The programme consists of 17 compulsory modules (9 theoretical and 8 practice modules). Each module is assessed and the successful completion of all modules is necessary to attract the professional award. Post-registration students accessing modules must be registered with either the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) or Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
Practice is an integral part of the programme and will be assessed during placements. While on clinical placement, you will be taught and supported by experienced practitioners, with time also set aside for study.
