Course summary

The MSc in Surgical Science and Practice is a part-time course which provides a strong foundation in some of the most important additional skills the future leaders of the surgical profession will need to acquire. It has been designed to be completed in two to four years by full-time surgical trainees. The MSc in Surgical Science and Practice prepares senior surgical trainees for life as independent specialists and focuses on key skills and knowledge essential for modern practices, some of which are not fully represented or are omitted from most graduate training curricula. The modular nature of the course allows you to fit study around your work. The programme will appeal to trainees in all surgical disciplines and to newly-qualified consultants/specialists who seek to enhance their understanding and professional skills. Applicants will usually be in the later years of their surgical training. Surgeons work as part of multidisciplinary teams in complex organisations, and will need to adapt and develop new skills and roles throughout their professional lives. The knowledge gained during the course will stand you in good stead throughout your career. The taught weeks include group work, discussions, guest lectures, and interaction and feedback with tutors and lecturers. The practical work develops your knowledge and understanding of the subjects covered. A virtual learning environment (VLE) provides support between modules. Assignments are submitted online and thus can be completed from anywhere in the world. The MSc aims to prepare you for your future working life and to equip you for: managing surgical units and leading surgical teams; undertaking surgical and clinical research; embarking upon an academic career pathway; becoming a medical educator.
