Course summary

Overview

This course will provide you with a valuable qualification to enhance career progression in this highly competitive field.

Ophthalmology is a surgical specialty dealing with disorders of the eye and visual pathways. Although the treatment of eye conditions involves a range of therapeutic options, including medicine, laser and surgery, the surgical field is constantly evolving with technology being the main driver. The MCh in Surgery (Ophthalmology) will prepare you as a trainee surgeon to meet the challenges of current and future ophthalmology.

This course will advance your scientific knowledge, innovative and forward thinking. A unique aspect of the MCh course is the teaching of regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine is fast evolving in ophthalmology, and this course will help you to appreciate this area of medicine as applied to eye conditions. This is especially so in retinal conditions, optic neuropathies and glaucoma. The knowledge gained is critical not just for local students but to any trainee from anywhere in the world.

Your future career

Completion of this course will not only give you a MCh in a surgical pathway that will aid your career progression, but it will highly enhance your prospects of employment. You will gain the knowledge and skills that few trainee doctors will possess and it will place you at the forefront of technology and science.

You will be able to demonstrate and share unique skills with colleagues for the benefit of excellent patient care and be a source of inspiration and innovation. These skills will be highly sought after. This will advantage you, whether you remain in your current place of employment whilst undertaking this course or whether you will be applying for a post on completion in the UK or abroad.
