Michael David is a Specialist Registrar in Trauma & Orthopaedics, and started his training in August 2009. A bone surgeon in training, he graduated in 2004 with two medical degrees from the University of St. Andrews and the University of Manchester. He completed his MRCS within 2 years and became an Advanced Life Support Instructor before moving to Birmingham's Royal Orthopaedic Hospital to gain intensive experience and fulfil his dream to become a bone surgeon.
This website, formerly known as www.tharu.com, was created in 1997 as even as a student, Michael David understood the need for information to be available to the clinician at any time. He used his online revision aids to study for finals without having to carry books around while he moved from hospital to hospital, or while he was in India during his elective training. Since graduating he has lectured students and examined at both Universities of Manchester and Birmingham, and donates his own revision notes to students and colleagues alike.
Michael David continues to update the Orthopaedic Notes section as he reads and prepares for his FRCS Orth examination. All he asks is that the work not be copied or misrepresented.
