Course Summary

Course overview

Explore how surgery has radically changed - and continues to advance - on this Master's course.

You'll examine a broad range of both clinical and non-clinical topics relevant to an ongoing career in surgery.

This course helps you develop key surgical skills in education, leadership, safety and quality. You'll build familiarity with current technological innovation in the NHS environment.

You'll also appraise and evaluate the scientific basis of surgery, and analyse issues involved in the application of technology to surgery.

The modular programme allows you to tailor your studies to meet your career needs, with the ability to develop your learning on specialist streams during your second year.

You'll then apply research methodologies from the course to an extensive individual project, guided by supervisors at Imperial.
