John Broomfield


DPhil Student

I completed my undergraduate medical degree at The University of Manchester and embarked upon a clinical career in Orthopaedic Surgery. Following completion of the intercollegiate MRCS I completed the MSc in Musculoskeletal Sciences here at The University of Oxford in 2014. This was hugely enjoyable and prompted me to pursue an academic orthopaedic career beginning with a clinical research fellowship in NDORMS.

I was awarded a Royal College of Surgeons of England Research Fellowship that has enabled me to continue my research. My DPhil project is investigating the role of biomarkers in early osteoarthritis of the hip for which I was awarded a DPhil studentship from UCB Pharma.
