Whitlam Orthopaedic Research Centre

About the Group

Research activities are conducted through the Whitlam Orthopaedic Research Centre (WORC) - part of the Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research. WORC has research expertise in multi-centre randomised controlled trials, in the fields of trauma surgery, joint replacement surgery and rehabilitation.

Although most of the WORC’s research activities relate to musculoskeletal conditions, they are also involved in research in other areas including outcome registries, methodological studies, surveys and systematic reviews.

There are also many collaborative projects both locally and nationally. WORC supervises many post-graduate (Masters and PhD) and undergraduate (UNSW ILP) students each year.
