Studying operating department practice at university features hospital placements, lectures, note-taking and... giant chocolate waffles.
1. Practice placements
What's the best way to learn to be an ODP?
Work with them. Get hands on. Learn from the best.
Loving my practice work.
2. Lectures and university days
Time to add some theory to all the practice! And have some fun with new friends.
It’s not just sitting and listening. Even at uni we get hands on (and dressed up).

Unfortunately it is needed. I find little and often is the best method.
I like to use a variety of methods.
Notes, online tests and even reading during cases at practice placements.
4. Leisure time
Everyone needs some time off from study and work.
A walk in the park, a cup of coffee, maybe a little treat (well ok, a large waffle. Yummy!).
