MEd Surgical Education alumnus wins Robert Jones Gold Medal

OrthopaedicsMEd Surgical Education alumnus Mr Andrew Wainwright has won the Robert Jones Gold Medal from the British Orthopaedic Association, after submitting an essay based on his MEd studies.

Andrew, a student at Imperial with the 2011 cohort studied for the MEd Surgical Education part-time, completed his degree with a dissertation entitled “A good pair of hands”, and graduated in 2013 with a Distinction. In the prize-winning essay he discussed the themes of competence, apprenticeship and craftsmanship in orthopaedic surgery today. By exploring the essence of what ‘having a good pair of hands’ means to surgeons, he proposed how this could improve the way that orthopaedic surgeons learn, teach, and assess surgical skills.
