Course summary

Course overview:

This course develops your specialist expertise within vascular and endovascular surgery at postgraduate level.

Delivered with support from consultants in vascular and endovascular surgery, this course is aimed at qualified doctors working within vascular or endovascular surgery who wish to gain a postgraduate qualification.

You develop your understanding of the concepts and principles underpinning the care of patients undergoing vascular or endovascular surgery, as well as your ability to find, critically evaluate and apply relevant research evidence to ensure it is clinically effective. The knowledge and skills you develop enhance your clinical decision-making and research practice within vascular and endovascular surgery, enabling you to contribute to the knowledge base. You are encouraged to focus on topical issues within current vascular and endovascular surgery practice, concentrating on aspects of practice that are relevant to your specific interests and practice. The course can be undertaken over one year full-time or two years part-time.

How you learn:

You learn through lectures, seminars, practical activities, clinical simulation, computer lab work and group work. The majority of teaching is delivered by principal and senior lecturers at Teesside University.

The specialist module is delivered by appropriately qualified clinical staff including consultants in vascular and endovascular surgery.

Full-time students study across two days a week and are expected to devote the remaining time to individual study including the optional observational experience.

Part-time students have the option to undertake most sessions by attendance, distance or flexible learning but attendance for the specialist module is compulsory and this is scheduled for one day a month across the first year of the course.

How you are assessed:

Summative assessment strategies include a written report, proposal, oral and written exam, statistics mini project, computer-based statistics exam, dissertation thesis and research article. The first module on the course includes a formative assessment. You receive formative feedback on your progress for all modules throughout the course. Feedback is provided electronically for all assessed work through the student intranet.

Career opportunities:

The course supports your career development by enhancing the research, evidence-based practice skills and principles underpinning specialist clinical practice that are required within the specialist field of vascular and endovascular surgery. It provides an additional master’s level qualification that may be used to support career progression. Engaging in research and a record of publication are important aspects in career progression if you are aiming to achieve a consultant position. Providing an opportunity to develop your research skills and to support you in preparing your work for publication is an important element of the course.
