This programme is intended for dental practitioners who want to develop competence in providing conscious sedation. The programme has been designed to allow you to gain experience of using inhalation sedation with nitrous oxide and oxygen, and midazolam. You will build your knowledge through distance learning modules and study days, while clinical skills will be developed during supervised clinical practice in Bristol. We aim to produce caring, knowledgeable and skilful practitioners who are competent in the provision of conscious sedation within the limits of the individual clinician.

Programme structure

This modular programme is divided in to three units: Local Anaesthesia, Anxiety Management and Clinical Conscious Sedation.

Local Anaesthesia
Pain and anxiety control are closely linked and treatments under sedation often need to be aborted because of inadequate local anaesthesia. The unit will update students in pharmacology and local anaesthetic techniques, introduce advanced local anaesthetic techniques and provide medical simulator training in the management of the complications of sedation.

Anxiety Management
This unit will provide students with a knowledge and critical understanding of the theoretical framework that underpins cognitive therapy, including self-help and behavioural approaches.

Clinical Conscious Sedation
This unit is designed to prepare those with no experience in conscious sedation to independent practice. It will include supervised clinical practice in Bristol, as well as distance learning and study days where practical skills will be introduced before beginning supervised clinical practice. The unit covers the syllabus on basic sedation techniques published in 2015 by the Intercollegiate Advisory Committee for Sedation in Dentistry.

In veterinary management of animals, anaesthesia (rendering animals unconscious to permit procedures) and analgesia (reducing the pain an animal is suffering) have vital importance in improving animal welfare, as well as permitting the ongoing developments in medical and surgical advances.

Knowledge and advances in anaesthesia over the last 20 years have been considerable. We can use techniques to block sensation locally or over a region of the body not just total unconsciousness. We have an array of drugs and methods of drug administration available to us in our fight against pain. Anaesthesia has always carried risks, and we have an increasing availability of monitoring equipment to help us monitor the physiological function of the body during anaesthesia with the aim of reducing morbidity and mortality in our animals.

The University of Edinburgh is offering this unique opportunity for an entirely online MSc to study these advances, during which students can gain knowledge and understanding in the equipment, drugs and techniques associated with anaesthesia and analgesia. Our team can provide a wide range of clinical and research experience across many species.

Online learning

Our award-winning online learning technology is fully interactive and enables you to communicate with our highly qualified teaching staff from the comfort of your own home or workplace. Online students not only have access to Edinburgh’s excellent resources, but also become part of a supportive online community.

Expert tutors will support you through every stage of the programme and you can engage with fellow students in supportive and constructive online networks.

Your progress will be assessed through online presentations, essays, critical reviews of literature, student self- reflection activities, short-answer questions, scientific posters, group wiki events and peer review activities.

Programme structure

The programme is taught part time over 3 years, but its flexible nature will allow you a maximum of 6 years to complete it. There are also options for studying for a certificate (1-2 years) or a diploma (2-4 years).

Each year will consist of three 11-week terms, structured into two blocks of five weeks of study, with a week in between for independent study and reflection.

The Postgraduate Certificate year (Year 1) starts with a series of compulsory courses to give a foundation in veterinary anaesthesia and analgesia, then progresses to examine how this may be applied in a variety of species. In the Postgraduate Diploma year (Year 2), you have the choice of selected courses to tailor the programme to your requirements. A dissertation completes the final year, however, this is a very flexible course, which can be tailored to suit you (subject to approval).

Year 1

Compulsory courses:

  • Basic sciences in anaesthesia and analgesia
  • Anaesthetic equipment
  • Patient assessment, critical incidents and cardiopulmonary resuscitation

You will also choose 2 out of 4 species-related courses in dogs and cats, equidae, ruminants, camelids and pigs or small mammals (e.g. rabbits, rats etc).

Year 2

You will choose courses to total 60 credits from the following:

  • Emergency case management (10 credits)
  • Chronic pain and advanced analgesic principles (10 credits)
  • Advanced cardiovascular procedures and monitoring (10 credits)
  • Lung ventilation and mechanical ventilators (10 credits)
  • Reptiles and birds (20 credits)
  • Ethics in veterinary anaesthesia: animal welfare and euthanasia (10 credits)

In addition, you could choose to select additional species courses from Year 1.

Year 3

During the written reflective element of the programme you will have the opportunity to further develop your scientific skills and utilise scientific theory. The form of the dissertation may vary to suit individual candidates, subject to approval of a submitted proposal. The dissertation will be a piece of written work 10-15,000 words long, which may take the form of a research study, analysis of techniques used in previous clinical work or an extended literature review. A casebook or portfolio submission may also be permitted.

Career opportunities

The MSc Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia is likely to be desirable for veterinary surgeons seeking employment in research environments (e.g. as Named Veterinary Surgeon or other roles) due to the key importance of anaesthesia and the emphasis on this from Home Office regulation of research work in the UK.

The MSc will be a different route for progression for veterinary nurses who have key roles in private veterinary practices with regard to veterinary anaesthesia and analgesia. This may be desirable for practices wishing to show a wide range of expertise amongst their staff and patient support for surgical procedures.

Anaesthetics, Pain Medicine and Intensive Care (APMIC) is a unique medical specialty. It involves hands on manipulation of physiology and real-time pharmacological intervention to effectively and safely manage patients in all parts of the hospital. Practice varies from treating life-threatening illnesses within the ICU, to relieving pain in the ward and clinic, to safely anaesthetising patients in the operating theatre. The application of basic science can be seen to directly affect clinical care and thus provides an excellent environment for translational research. As healthcare becomes more centralised in larger Academic Health Science Networks, it is becoming apparent that positions in prestigious institutions require more than standard clinical training programmes. Evidence of additional training, particularly in academic work, is required to demonstrate an individual’s competitive edge. However, not everyone will want or have the opportunity to complete a full PhD training programme. This Masters in Research course will provide training and qualification in all the fundamental principles of Anaesthetic, Pain Medicine and Intensive care research. Based in the Department of Surgery and Cancer in the Faculty of Medicine, the stream provides an opportunity to learn, in a supportive and stimulating environment, from leaders in the field who are actively engaged in research.

The emphasis of the course will be to provide a thorough training in Anaesthetics, Pain Medicine and Intensive Care (APMIC) research from fundamental principles of molecular mechanisms toward clinical basic principles. Through the two research-based projects students will be exposed to the latest developments in the field and will gain first-hand experience in applying the methods they are taught to research questions in Anaesthetics, Pain Medicine and Intensive Care.

Individuals who complete the course will have developed the ability to:

-Understand fundamental principles of molecular mechanisms of APMIC
-Describe advanced physiology and pharmacology of APMIC
-Master principles of translation of research and research techniques
-Gain detailed knowledge and understanding of the essential facts, concepts, principles, techniques and theories relevant to the students' chosen research project
-Develop management and communication skills, including problem definition, project design, decision processes, written and oral reports and scientific publications
-This will be achieved through completing two research projects, supplemented with a course of lectures, seminars, tutorials, and technical workshops. Please note that Postgraduate Diplomas and Certificates for part-completion are not available for this course.

The stream will be based in the section of APMIC, Department of Surgery and Cancer on the Chelsea and Westminster Campus of Imperial College London.

Each student chooses two projects over the course of the year from the wide range available. Students are guided in this choice by the course organiser and their personal tutor and are advised to take contrasting projects to ensure a balanced training.
