MSc Surgical Science and Practice
This exciting part-time degree course, delivered in collaboration with the Department for Continuing Education's Continuing Professional Development Centre, is designed to prepare more senior surgical trainees for life as an independent specialist by providing skills and knowledge essential for modern practice which may not be fully represented or omitted from most postgraduate training curricula. Surgeons in the future will work as part of multi-disciplinary teams in complex organisations, and will need to adapt and develop new skills and roles throughout their professional lives.
This course provides a foundation in some of the most important additional skills which the future leaders of the profession will need to acquire. Thus, the syllabus covers Management Skills, Quality Improvement, Leadership, Teamwork and Patient Safety, as well as an introduction to the principles of Medical Education and Clinical Research Methods. It also gives an exceptional opportunity for an introduction, with hands-on experience, to leading edge modern Surgical Technology such as the Da Vinci robot.
