Learn more about the role of the operating department practitioner (ODP) by coming to one of our taster days.

You'll get:
  • the chance to speak to current staff and students
  • practical experience of the operating theatre environment
  • useful tips on applying
  • information about funding.

Please note that because of room restrictions, we can't accept family or friends in our taster day sessions. If they'd like to visit Anglia Ruskin, we recommend one of our open days.

Find out more about the ODP course from our DipHE Operating Department Practice course page.
