OCORC & Education

Tom Cosker & OCORC

Tom Cosker is the Course Director for the Oxford Comprehensive Orthopaedic Review Course. Based on the highly successful Miller Review Course held in Denver, Colorado, Course Convenor Tom Cosker hosted FRCS (Orth) courses in the UK for the first time ever in April 2011- and this was a huge success! The course has taken place every year since, and has been growing year upon year. The next course is scheduled for January 2022.

The course offers an intense and comprehensive review of Orthopaedics that is based on the recently published 6th edition of the essential Review of Orthopaedics text by Mark D Miller. Primarily aimed at those who are sitting the FRCS (Orth) examination, it is also useful for all those orthopaedic trainees or orthopaedic surgeons in practice who may wish to brush up on the very latest in Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery.

The UK course has attracted delegates from around the world, including Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Dubai, Oman, Jordan, Turkey, Greece and more.

The course focuses on covering all essential and testable aspects of Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgery in the context of the FRCS (Orth). The faculty are all Fellowship trained and they are chosen because they really can teach. Course participants grade the faculty and only the best lecturers are invited to return.
