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 is intended to be completed in two to four years by full-time surgical trainees. This course aims to prepare 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. 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.
