Course summary

Overview

You’re looking to specialise in urology, and to be taught by some of the best urology practitioners and academics in the UK. This course will help you develop your clinical, leadership and research skills. You’ll learn to innovate and drive change, and to improve patient experiences and outcomes.

Full description

This is one of very few masters programmes in urology in the UK. It was designed, and is taught, in partnership with consultant urologists at Cambridge University Hospitals Trust, which has an international reputation for excellence.

The course is intended for junior trainees before they begin a registrar programme in urology, although it is also open to urology registrars. It is theory-based, so you’ll be expected to do your hands-on clinical practice at your place of work. You’ll experience a mix of face-to-face and distance learning. The academic teaching for 2020-21 semester 1 is available only online, with later teaching under constant review in light of the pandemic COVID 19.

You’ll learn about the anatomy, basic sciences and path-physiology of urological conditions, to aid effective diagnosis and determining appropriate surgical and non-surgical management pathways, so that when you complete the course you’ll be fully equipped to engage with all aspects of urology. You’ll focus on the protection of patients and setting the highest standards for practice. You’ll be encouraged to explore the roles of innovation, research and creativity in evaluating and influencing practice in order to improve service delivery.

You can exit with Pgcert and PgDip awards.

Careers

Getting onto the urology training programme in the UK is highly competitive, but achieving a higher degree in this field can greatly increase your chances of success.

This course will deepen your understanding of urology, and you’ll make significant progress in linking theory and practice with research. You’ll sharpen your creative and critical thinking, and you’ll develop your ideas around innovation and change management. These skills will be invaluable to you in building your career progression and will also be attractive to employers.

Opportunities for clinical training in urology are available for suitable candidates with GMC.
