Course summary

The PGDip course provides the opportunity to choose a specialist stream during your PG Dip, which are offered in line with current trends in surgical subspecialisation, and are currently Bariatrics; Colorectal Surgery; Ears, Nose and Throat; Oesophago-Gastric Surgery; Orthopaedic Surgery; Transplant Surgery; Trauma Management and Vascular Surgery. There is a strong emphasis on how surgery has radically changed and will continue to advance in the twenty-first century. You will be equipped with key surgical skills in education, leadership and safety, quality and technological innovation in the current NHS environment and the clinical specialty streams are in line with the current trend in surgical subspecialisation. The programme will promote world class scholarship, education and research in the field of surgery and allied health professions, fostering interdisciplinary working. The modular structure of the programme aligns well with the Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum, offering you the opportunity to gain specific qualifications in topics relevant to your special interest, exposing you to key non-clinical skills, as well as concepts and techniques in surgical research. Our teaching programme for the PGDip in Surgical Innovation reviews and incorporates the rapid pace of change within surgery, providing on-going professional development to improve students career prospects. The programme parallels training of surgeons and allied healthcare professions such as members of the multi-disciplinary team (MDT) and Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNS). We anticipate that graduates of the MSc in Surgical Innovation will be well placed to advance their careers in a range of directions that include academic surgery, specialisation and research (clinical and non-clinical). Assessment methods involves the following: Academic oral presentations; Critical reflection; e-learning MCQs/MEQs; e-teaching case; Evidence-based mini project; Group presentations; Literature review; Preparation of teaching video; Structured debates; Topical essay and Written and practical exams.
