The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Training Rotation is one of the UK’s most prestigious orthopaedic registrar training rotations. It is one of four training rotations in the North Central and East London Deanery of Health Education England.

The orthopaedic training programme at the RNOH Stanmore has over 40 Trainees. It is one of the finest training rotations in the country for trauma & orthopaedics, as trainees spend 18 months at the UK’s largest tertiary orthopaedic centre, RNOH Stanmore and one of the busiest major trauma centres at the Royal London Hospital. This provides trainees with a unique insight into the whole breadth of trauma & orthopaedics during their training. The rotation has a long history of being able to place trainees in consultant posts throughout the country.

Education and research are also high priority and trainees are expected to participate. Many trainees undertake MDs & PhDs. This is encouraged and is certainly what will be required in the future for teaching hospital appointments.

Trainees enjoy the rotation and there is a high success rate in the FRCS (Orth) exam.
