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.
