Operating Department Practitioner (ODP)

BSc (Hons) Operating Department Practice at University of East Anglia (UEA)

Operating Department Practitioners (ODPs) are an important part of the operating department team working with anaesthetists, surgeons, theatre nurses and other health care professionals to help ensure every operation is as safe and effective as possible. As an ODP, you will be integral to the planning, preparation, delivery and evaluation of clinical practice. You will gain knowledge of peri-operative practice techniques in anaesthetics, surgical and post-operative practice, which offers numerous employment opportunities. Excellent leadership, management and communication skills are also vital when working in the perioperative environment – students will develop these throughout their studies. 

Pupils can talk to UEA staff out about the ODP BSc course at UEA on 14 March at our Careers Fair.
