This new two year part-time Masters programme in Vascular & Endovascular Surgery, taught entirely online, is offered by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and the University of Edinburgh, and leads to the degree of Master of Surgery (ChM).

Based on the UK Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum, the programme provides advanced training for surgeons preparing for the intercollegiate fellowship examination and approaching independent surgical practice.

The ChM provides advanced training for surgeons preparing for the intercollegiate fellowship examination and approaching consultancy.

On completion of this programme students will be able to:

  • demonstrate in-depth knowledge of their chosen surgical subspecialty, and be able to apply this knowledge to the systematic assessment and management of surgical patients in the elective, urgent and emergency clinical setting
  • recognise the leadership contribution and responsibilities of the surgeon in the multidisciplinary management of complex surgical disease
  • critically reflect upon day-to-day surgical practice in the context of recent advances, and engage in critical dialogue with peers and experts in other specialties
  • apply the general principles of clinical study design, ethics, and statistics to critically evaluate the scientific literature in surgical research, and make informed judgments on new and emerging issues in surgery
  • exercise a high level of autonomy and initiative in professional activities at a level of independent surgical practice

Online learning

The programme is taught entirely online. Students are supported by asynchronous discussion with e-tutors (all leading clinicians in their field) and have access to a large learning resource, including subscriptions to key online books and journals.

Our award-winning interactive online learning technology 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, bringing together students and tutors from around the world.

Programme structure

The programme runs on a semester basis over 2-4 years and involves approximately 10-15 hours of study each week, in a flexible modular manner.

The programme is delivered using a purpose-built learning environment that supports a variety of learning styles, and allows students flexibility in their study patterns.

Courses within the programme are also offered as Continuous Professional Development (CPD).

Year 1

Core modules in each area of vascular and endovascular surgery are aligned to the ISPC Curriculum. These are taught and assessed using a clinical problem-based approach, supported by systems-based review of the course material, which should mirror ‘in-the-workplace’ activities.

Component courses include Principles of Vascular Practice, Aneurysms, Venous & Lymphatic Disorders, Vascular Trauma and Principles of Endovascular Practice. Each semester, courses are taught concurrently such that a student may be engaged in 5-6 asynchronous discussions at any one time (one per course). Students will spent 10-15 hours on programme-related study each week (activities include reading the discussion thread, reading around the topic, contributing to the discussion).

Knowledge and understanding will be assessed in the second year, following completion of core modules, with a formal written examination (MCQs and EMIs) that will replicate the trainees upcoming exit exams.

Year 2

Academic modules will explore research and teaching methodology, whilst enabling students to develop the ability to analyse published evidence and enhance their interactive and written clinical communication skills.

Students are required to complete a dissertation based on original research or a systematic review in a relevant area of work. Alternatively, an individual with a number of peer-reviewed journal publications may undertake an academic critique of their work.

Career opportunities

The programme will offer an alternative to clinical / laboratory research training for those students who do not wish to take time out of surgical training. It will develop the trainee's academic portfolio and facilitate surgical research projects essential to a research active career.

The ChM programme is designed to follow the ISCP curriculum and prepare the advanced surgical trainee for their exit professional examinations allowing appointment as an independently practising surgeon.

The award of ChM will highlight the trainee's commitment to continual professional development and will ensure a competitive edge when applying for consultant positions.

The MCh Orth Course in Dundee (accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons of England) is a clinically-based Masters degree that encompasses taught, clinical attachment and research elements, which provide orthopaedic surgeons with in-depth knowledge of the latest advances in surgical and biomechanical techniques.

In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, to reflect the multi-disciplinary aspect of the research carried out at IMAR, where the majority of the MCh Orth projects are conducted, the respective staff were returned into Unit of Assessment 25 (General Engineering - Biomedical Engineering) and Unit of Assessment 8 (Primary Care and Other Community Based Clinical Subjects) where 90% and 85% of our quality profile was deemed of international class. This is an excellent outcome taking into consideration that IMAR was only established in 2003 in support of the MCh Orth course.
