The series of lectures and interactive sessions run over two days will cover all aspects of tribology, biomechanics, pathophysiology, statistics and microbiology required for both the written and oral examination. The course includes a heavy emphasis in viva practice and the candidates can expect over 6 hours of viva practice from the experienced faculty with personalised feedback.
