Course summary

About the course

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 MSc syllabus covers management skills, quality improvement, leadership, teamwork and patient safety, development and implementation of surgical technologies, as well as an introduction to the principles of medical education and clinical research methods. It also includes taught material on research skills. The knowledge gained during the course will stand you in good stead throughout your career.

  • attend the six compulsory modules in Oxford;
