Course Introduction

This MS programme is focused, practical-based, highly innovative and "hands-on", mixing the cutting-edge of VR and SoMe with advanced practical training and telementoring in robotics and laparoscopy from some of the world's most renowned expert surgeons. This degree incorporates latest technologies that will place students at the forefront of modern surgical training. Students learn advanced practical skills in minimally-invasive surgery and have the opportunity to improve their laparoscopic and robotic skills. Academic surgeons who are experts in their field and recognised as thought leaders in surgery teach on this programme. You will learn about and develop Virtual and Augmented Reality models at the cutting edge of surgery and be among the only group of students who are specifically taught on the use of SoMe in surgery by some of the pioneers of this movement. The technology integrated into this programme will allow students to be mentored and assessed by surgeons in Europe and the USA whilst being based at the Bloomsbury Campus, using state-of-the-art telestration equipment. The module structure will also allow students to work directly with experienced academics and develop projects that will be clinically applicable to their future careers. The international, multidisciplinary academic environment will allow students to directly interact with some of the key opinion leaders in surgery - learning operative skills as well as observing the latest procedures - and tailor their practice to be at the forefront of modern surgery. This degree is also available as a PG Certificate with fees set accordingly.
