Surgery of the hand is a sub-specialty of orthopaedic surgery and traumatology. For the day-to-day practice of this surgery, there is a need for theoretical and practical knowledge of the upper limb in particular, and also of anatomy, surgical entry paths, osteosynthesis, arthroscopy, cutaneous coverings and microsurgery.

Until now, this knowledge has been acquired over many years of study and through specific courses on osteosynthesis, arthroscopy, microsurgery, etc. The Graduate Diploma in Surgery of the Wrist and Hand offers its students a chance to learn both theory and practice systematically.

The sub-specialty in surgery of the hand provides the essentials for carrying out the usual techniques, and equips its students with the knowledge of theory needed to take the European Board of Hand Surgery Diploma examination of the European Federation of Societies for Surgery of the Hand (FESSH).

Career opportunities

This graduate diploma provides the theoretical and practical knowledge needed to pursue the sub-specialty of surgery of the wrist and hand, provided the student has undergone specialist training in orthopaedic surgery and traumatology or another surgical specialty, within the Spanish national health system or that of another country.
