Operating Department Practice

Facilities for students

At the University we have outstanding learning facilities. The £42 million George Davies Centre is a state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly building that harnesses the very latest technology and resources, creating an outstanding learning environment for our healthcare students and facilitating inter-professional education.

In the building we have dedicated ODP teaching rooms as well as our practical room for simulation rehearsal of your skills, and excellent IT facilities for your academic studies. All rooms are fitted with AppleTVs to facilitate digital learning and you will be given an iPad when you start, which you will use daily in lectures, seminars and group work.

Our partner hospitals have the latest technology and equipment in their operating theatres. During your placement you will become familiar and confident with their uses. They also have state of the art clinical skills centres and clinical libraries to support your learning.
