The MSc in Trauma Surgery focuses on state of the art practical techniques and treatment strategies in Major Trauma, using small group teaching sessions, delivered by practicing clinicians who are experts in their fields. The Trauma Surgery programme is aimed at all doctors with a committed interest in trauma care, with previous students becoming consultants in Trauma & Orthopaedics, Burns and Plastics, General & Vascular Surgery, Maxillo-facial Surgery, as well as Emergency Department Medicine and Intensive Care.

Key Features

The bedrock of the Trauma Surgery programme is face to face teaching from those with in-depth professional experience of the topics in question . Defence Medical Services personnel may enrol on the MSc Trauma Surgery (Military) Programme, which has 2 dedicated Military Modules detailed below. Trauma care is one of the most rapidly evolving areas in modern medicine. Improvements in the immediate (damage control) resuscitation have improved survival, underpinned by the lessons learnt from the Defence Medical Services and the most effective trauma systems in the developed world. Post-injury reconstructive surgery and rehabilitation now offer potentials for recovery which were previously inconceivable. Thus a sound grasp of the theory and practice of trauma surgery from its integration in damage control resuscitation to definitive reconstruction make this one of the most rewarding fields of medical endeavour. The Trauma Surgery Programme is constantly revised and refreshed in the light of new developments.

The Trauma Surgery programme is unique in design, delivery and assessment with the innovative use cadaveric teaching and increasingly sophisticated simulation methods to enhance learning. Previous student experience has confirmed that these Programmes offer a robust practical and academic springboard , with graduates moving into consultant careers is all specialties involved in trauma care.

This is a part-time programme which spans roughly two calendar years, the first of which is the taught component which comprises of 5 clinical modules and one vital research methods teaching block, each 4 days long. The second year is dedicated to completing the dissertation. We welcome associate students who just wish to attend individual modules, or particular days from any part of the programme.

Modules typically include:

Trauma: The Disease
The Turning Point
Healing & Rehabilitation

Introduction

After more than a decade of devolution, Scotland’s national status ‘is both dangled before us and tantalisingly withheld’ (Don Paterson)
The Stirling Master's course views Scottish literature in the light of this ambiguity from a perspective shaped by critical theory as well as traditional literary history. Our focus is the unusually strong role played by literature in sustaining the reality and difference of Scottish culture over the past three centuries – not forgetting the role of novelists and poets in integrating Scottish identity into the project of Britishness. As debate intensifies over Scotland’s political status, the time is ripe to examine the role of writing in shaping the image and reality of the nation.

Course objectives

This course explores modern Scottish literature in relation to the ambivalent condition of Scottish history and identity.
We focus on writing from Robert Burns, Walter Scott and James Hogg, through Victorian and late 19th-century writers (Galt, Buchan, Stevenson) to the modernist experiments of Hugh MacDiarmid and his followers, and on to provocative 20th-century experiments in language, textuality and historical re-telling (Welsh, Galloway, Kelman, Spark, Gray, Saadi, Robertson).
No previous experience in studying Scottish literature is required. Leading Scottish writers and critics feature prominently in assigned reading, as do theorists of cultural modernity.

"The English department at the University of Dundee is worth recommending for a number of reasons ... I greatly enjoyed the fact that I was allowed a free hand with my own research; supervision being present and supportive, but not controlling or stifling in the least."
Samira Nadkarni, MLitt English Studies

Students whose dissertation fails to satisfy the examiners will be awarded the PG Diploma, provided that the taught elements of the course have been successfully completed.

Careers

Students who take this course will gain a solid foundation from which they can proceed to doctoral research.

However, due to the non-vocational nature of a Humanities degree many students also enter jobs unrelated to their course of study. For these students this course provides them with an opportunity to further develop their written presentation skills, as well as the ability to work independently and plan independent research and study.

"I am so glad I did the Creative Writing module offered by the English department at Dundee as part of my MLitt degree pathway in Humanities. I am currently finishing a second novel, halfway through writing the script of a play, and working on a paper for the Conference of Clinical Anatomists. I am also involved in two or three different writing-in-the-community projects. The contacts I've made, and my confidence in trying different genres, is in large part attributable to that module."

Trauma care is one of the most rapidly evolving areas in modern medicine. Improvements in the immediate (damage control) resuscitation have improved survival, underpinned by the lessons learnt from the most effective trauma systems in the developed world. Post-injury reconstructive surgery and rehabilitation now offer potentials for recovery which were previously inconceivable. Thus a sound grasp of the theory and practice of trauma surgery make this one of the most rewarding fields of medical endeavour. The Trauma Surgery programmes are constantly revised and refreshed in the light of new developments. The programmes are unique in course design, delivery and assessment with the innovative use of increasingly sophisticated simulation methods to enhance learning. Previous student experience has confirmed that these Trauma Surgery programmes offer a robust practical and academic springboard for those committed to a career in trauma care.

Open to medical graduates (MBCHB, MBBS and equivalents), Post MRCS or equivalent and those with ATLS provider or instructor status, this innovative, highly practical and academically rigorous programme is aimed at those committed to a career devoted to improving trauma care. The part-time taught component (Part 1) consists of 5 clinical and 2 research methods modules which are delivered in 5 and 3 day blocks respectively. The clinical modules are arranged sequentially to take the students from immediate management, critical care, and on to healing recovery in the first 3 modules. The subsequent modules are devoted to Military Operational Surgical Training & Combat Surgery, delivered at the ADMST.

The first of the research methods modules focuses upon effective literature searches, critical appraisal of literature and the development of a portfolio reflecting this, and the second is dedicated to the preparation of a dissertation proposal. Part 2 is the completion of the dissertation itself.

Modules on the Trauma Surgery (Military) programme typically include:

• Trauma: the disease
• The turning point
• Healing and rehabilitation
• Military operational surgical training
• Combat surgery: clinical and logistics
• Evidence-based health and social care
• Health research methods and preparation for dissertation
• Dissertation

Additional alternative modules are under development, including Immediate Management of Burns, and Civilian General & Vascular Surgery in Trauma.

Each clinical module follows a similar template with core knowledge being delivered in topic areas by means of lectures, and consolidated with case discussions and practical simulations/workshops. Assessment is based upon the ability of the students to apply their knowledge both in simulations, short answer written papers, essays and case presentation. There are two exit points: Postgraduate Diploma and MSc.
