Ulrike Bilgram

Honorary Departmental Project Coordinator

The department is approaching a singular moment in its history, its 80th Anniversary in 2017, which will provide an important occasion to recall, understand, and honor its history.

I am therefore running a history project focussing on the developments of academic orthopaedics in Oxford and its relationship with orthopaedic care and training.

The NDORMS History Website is one component of the effort to document the extraordinary academic achievements that have made NDORMS the largest academic department of orthopaedics, rheumatology and musculoskeletal sciences in Europe. 

The goal is eventually to create a comprehensive database and archive with material such as photos, biographies, memorials, and even video oral histories for more recent members of the department.
