Are you interested in a rewarding career in perioperative care? Have you got excellent management skills and a passion for supporting others? Start your journey to becoming a vital part of the theatre team with our BSc (Hons) Operating Department Practice (ODP) course. ODP's are a vital part of the operating theatre team, with their role varying from day to day. Working alongside surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses and healthcare support workers, ODPs ensure that every operation is as safe and effective as possible. While receiving continuous individual support and guidance, this course prepares you to become an independent practitioner within the operating department environment, able to respond to changes in health care needs and priorities. You will learn and practice in a real-life operating theatre, within our state-of-the-art £71 million City South Campus and will benefit from excellent graduate employability rates. Successful completion of this course means you will be eligible to apply for registration as an ODP with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), and can work within a multidisciplinary operating theatre team.
