Course summary

Programme overview

This part-time MSc programme gives you the opportunity to complete a personalised and relevant master's-level degree that requires minimal study time away from clinical practice. It makes use of motivated and experienced clinical trainers to deliver a programme that will translate to excellent, individualised academic surgical practice. The course complements your clinical career, will expand your academic skills and offers the flexibility to focus on areas of practice that are relevant to your career plans.

The programme is divided into clinical, research methods and research project modules, all of which are completed on a part-time basis. The clinical component is designed with practical clinical relevance in mind. You will direct your own learning towards topics and sub-specialty areas that you are interested in and are relevant to your career. Learning is assessed through extended case presentations, poster displays and reflective writing, which requires minimal time away from patient care and mirrors the professional activities of a clinician scientist in orthopaedic surgery.

The research methods component comprises seminars in techniques of critical appraisal, trial design, data manipulation and analysis. A combination of formative and programme-level assessment will be used to demonstrate what you have learned.

The research project module offers an opportunity to carry out and deliver a high-quality study with academic supervision; the expectation is that this work would be published in a peer-reviewed journal.

Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip exit awards during this course.

Careers

Students participating in this programme will already be enrolled in higher surgical training, with the expectation that they will complete their training within orthopaedic surgery and combine this with an academic surgical practice.
