PhD opportunity on managing hip fractures in resource-poor settings

The University of New South Wales is offering a PhD scholarship in the management of hip fractures in resource poor settings in India and China.

This project will involve working with clinicians in China and India to develop and evaluate a simple, adaptable, protocol driven clinical pathway for hip fracture. This will build on current and previous large scale observational studies and established clinical networks, and will contribute to changes in clinical management of hip fracture across Asia.
