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 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 of the Trauma Surgery Programme

The bedrock of the 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

The Trauma Surgery Programme is part time with Part 1 comprising 5 clinical (20 credit) and 2 research methods (10 credit) modules and Part 2 being the dissertation. Each of the clinical modules follows a similar pattern with teaching and simulations delivered in the newly completed Morriston Teaching Centre, while the cadaveric teaching takes part in the Anatomy Suite of the Grove Building, located in the Singleton Campus. Each clinical module is 4 days long and the 2 day research methods modules run back to back as another 4 day block.

Modules on the Trauma Surgery programme typically include:

Trauma: The Disease
The Turning Point
Healing & Rehabilitation
Regional Trauma
Definitive Reconstruction
Immediate Management of Burns
Military Operational Surgical Training (Military Pathway)

Our MSc in Skin Ageing and Aesthetic Medicine is specifically designed for qualified medical or dental practitioners who wish to develop their knowledge in the field of cosmetic medicine.

This course seeks to develop future leaders in aesthetic practice by offering a high quality programme at an internationally recognised institution.

This MSc is an intensive part-time postgraduate taught programme encompassing the science of skin ageing and aesthetics, the application of evidence-based practice, the clinical assessment and management of patients presenting with aesthetic problems.
You will be encouraged to develop a translational, professional approach to learning throughout the course, which can be applied to your future learning.

In addition, supervision and training is provided by national and international leaders in the field of aesthetic research, regulation and clinical practice.

The unique amalgamation of research and clinical expertise in Skin Ageing and Aesthetic Medicine at The University of Manchester and Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust allows us to develop a unique programme supported by an interdisciplinary faculty of dermatologists, plastic surgeons, oculoplastic surgeons, maxillo-facial surgeons, dentists and psychologists in addition to skin ageing and wound research basic scientists.

Aims

The aim of the programme is to develop professionals with the ability to apply scientific principles and the latest evidence base to the practice of skin ageing and aesthetic medicine. You will develop clinical knowledge, specialist practical skills and critical awareness of non-surgical procedures supported by leading experts in the field.

Special features

We offer specific patient-centred teaching underpinned by evidence-based theory to ensure students understand the relationship between practical and theoretical aspects of aesthetic practice.

Each student will be provided with one-to-one tutor support throughout the programme with small group sessions and bedside training with volunteer models during the clinical sessions.

The programme has been recognised as a gold standard for education in aesthetic practice by the UK Higher Education governing body: Higher Education England. It aligns directly with the outcomes of the UK Department of Health review on cosmetic practice and General Medical Council guidance in this area.

As a Russell Group university, Manchester is a centre for world-class research, outstanding learning and student experience and social responsibility. The University of Manchester Dermatological Research Sciences group sits within the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health and is led by Professor Chris Griffiths. The centre is recognised as global leader in basic science, translational and clinical research in skin health and disease.

The programme is run in collaboration with The Dermatology Centre at Salford Royal Foundation Trust, one of the largest clinical dermatology units in the UK.

As a University of Manchester master's-level degree programme, this course will offer content and assignments meeting rigorous criteria to support development expected of aesthetic practice leaders of the future.

Teaching and learning

The programme structure has been designed using established educational theory and practices to enhance student experience and learning.

The University of Manchester virtual learning environment (Blackboard) guides participants through module content, assessment submission and programme information.

Modules utilise blended teaching methods aligned with learning outcomes and assessment. The course contains e- learning case work, small group work, interactive forums, clinical debriefs, and practical sessions with volunteer models. Students are taught in small ratios (1:5) to maximise opportunities for clinical learning.

We hold two face-to-face 6-day residential sessions during the first 24 months of programme, one in each of the two first years. Both of these will be scheduled in the second semester and dates should be circulated in September. Attendance in at the residential sessions is compulsory for all students.

An initial Induction Day is held in Manchester at the start of the first academic year to familiarise participants with the on-line e-learning software and library resources. Attendance at the Induction Day is also compulsory for all students.

Coursework and assessment

You will be required to pass group and written assignments for each module. Those with a highly practical element will also include assessments of procedural skills.

Career opportunities

With the gap in training highlighted by the UK government review of cosmetic practice, it is likely all aesthetic practitioners in the UK will need to provide evidence of their credentials.

This programme does not provide a professional competence framework, but goes beyond this to offer integrated knowledge and the application of critical skills enveloped within high quality professional behaviours.

Those who complete this programme will be forerunners in acquisition of a comprehensive knowledge base which can be applied to their future or current clinical practice.

Students from the UK and abroad will benefit substantially from the opportunity to complete a programme from one of the world-leading institutions in skin health and research.

The master's element of the course will be assessed through a written dissertation (12,000 words).
