This innovative Masters degree is suitable for qualified practitioners who have been appointed to surgical care practice training posts within surgical directorates. Read more
This innovative Masters degree is suitable for qualified practitioners who have been appointed to surgical care practice training posts within surgical directorates. Your role should encompass the provision of care and appropriate intervention within the perioperative environment, on wards and/or in clinics (usually within a specified surgical specialty).

The programme will provide you with a systematic and critical understanding of the breadth and depth of knowledge within specific areas of practice. You will develop core and specialist surgical skills and extend your knowledge and practice within the surgical care environment. This will include some operative procedures that will enable specialist practitioners to provide continuity of service and standards of care to patients in areas which do not necessarily need to be provided by medically qualified staff.

Eleven specialist pathways are available:

- MSc Surgical Care Practice (Cardiothoracic Surgery)
- MSc Surgical Care Practice (General Surgery)
- MSc Surgical Care Practice (Gynaecology)
- MSc Surgical Care Practice (Maxillofacial Surgery)
- MSc Surgical Care Practice (Neurosurgery)
- MSc Surgical Care Practice (Otorhinolaryngology)
- MSc Surgical Care Practice (Paediatric Surgery)
- MSc Surgical Care Practice (Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery)
- MSc Surgical Care Practice (Trauma and Orthopaedics)
- MSc Surgical Care Practice (Urology)
- MSc Surgical Care Practice (Vascular Surgery)

What will I study?

Initially, you will be given a broad overview of surgical practice, covering areas such as clinical examination and diagnostic tests. You will also study and practice first assistant skills, basic surgical skills, and generic surgical care practice skills (including all of the pre, intra and post-operative patient phases). Research and leadership skills in relation to the role of a surgical care practitioner are also introduced and discussed.

In the second half of the programme, you will undertake a specialist negotiated module which will be tailored to your specific specialist practice requirements. For instance, if you work for an orthopaedic team then the module will be tailored to the specific requirements of that team, potentially considering themes such as understanding the pathophysiology of joint disease and strategies for their treatment, the use of implants in elective orthopaedic surgery and in relation to specific orthopaedic procedures, and knowledge of available options and surgical techniques.

A dissertation module focuses on a clinical project that will demonstrate leadership and innovation in a specific clinical issue.

How will I study?

The programme incorporates a blend of face-to-face study, independent learning and time spent working in practice. Delivery is at St James' in Manchester, although some face-to-face sessions and/or examinations may be undertaken at Edge Hill University.

For the time spent in university, the first half of the course will be delivered through block-weeks of face-to-face sessions. Eight block-weeks of face-to-face sessions will take place in the first year. Some reading time will be incorporated into these eight weeks to help you plan for the assessment and submission of work.

In the second half of the programme, there is a greater focus on independent learning. However, some face-to-face sessions will be planned and there will also be an attendance requirement for assessments.

Throughout the programme, you will undertake training in your place of employment, working alongside the multidisciplinary team to deliver safe and effective care to patients in the perioperative environment, on the wards and in the clinics both pre and post-operatively.

A minimum of 33.5 hours per week, for approximately 37 weeks, will be spent working in practice.The national curriculum requires a minimum of 2,200 hours over the two years in combined clinical activities in and out of the theatre environment. A minimum of 1,100 hours has to be spent in the operating theatre environment.

In addition to the above, a half-day per week will be built into your annual timetable to facilitate self-directed learning and engagement with Edge Hill University’s virtual learning environment.

How will I be assessed?

In university, assessments will take the form of essays, written case studies, viva voce (oral) examinations, written examinations and observed structured clinical examinations (OSCEs).

In practice, you will be assessed using a variety of techniques, including:

- The Direct Observation of Procedural Skills (DOPS), where you will perform a specific practical procedure that is directly observed;

- Case-based Discussion (CbD), requiring the evaluation of your performance in the management of a patient. This will provide an indication of your competence in areas such as clinical reasoning, decision-making and the application of medical knowledge in relation to patient care;

- Clinical Evaluation Exercise (CEX), where a clinical encounter with a patient is evaluated to provide an indication of your competence in skills essential for outstanding clinical care.

Who will be teaching me?

You will be taught by tutors from the Faculty of Health and Social Care who have the experience and expertise to deliver the applied elements of this MSc via lessons, seminars and discussions. In addition, teaching will be provided by associate lecturers who are either medically qualified, or employed as qualified surgical care practitioners.

You will require a mentor who must be a consultant surgeon for the practice elements of the programme, although it is expected that you will work with a variety of staff within the surgical team. This may include, for example, other consultant surgeons, registrars and junior medical staff, in addition to other surgical care practitioners (subject to availability). The mentor(s) must be willing and available to work alongside you in the clinical arena, with real patients, supervising and assessing your clinical activities.

What are my career prospects?

On completion of this programme, you will gain a nationally recognised qualification that enables you to undertake the role of a surgical care practitioner.

You will also be able to demonstrate a number of core and specialist skills that will enable you to work effectively as part of the surgical team, work competently to practice within your field of speciality (e.g. cardiothoracic, colorectal, or trauma and orthopaedics) and to be able to function confidently, competently and autonomously.

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. Read more
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.

This is a key component of the course as it is essential in developing your teamwork skills and your understanding of the other roles you will encounter in practice.

Approach to assessment

You will be asked to produce a number of different types of written work throughout your study, including critical appraisals, reflective work and case studies. Some assignments will also require you to present work to faculty staff and peers.

Assessment of practice learning occurs both within the 'practice modules' - Professional Practice Experience (PPE) modules - and also in the 'practice-related' modules. All students have a Practice Assessment Document which contains a competency framework to assess practice.

As a postgraduate student with more highly developed academic skills and a self-directed approach, you are expected to work to produce material that is creative and original. You will be encouraged to try out the creative application of new or existing ideas or theory to address contemporary practice problems, health and social care policy or health and social care needs.

Why WBS?

Challenging business insights with real world application

Entrepreneurial in spirit and practice, we break new ground with our global business insights and empower our students to make a difference in the business and wider world. We do this by constantly challenging ourselves to take teaching and learning beyond the classroom by bringing in leading experts as Professors of Practice and as visiting lecturers. It is this real world knowledge married with our outstanding inter-disciplinary, global research that enables us to build links with international organisations like Jaguar Land Rover, Amazon and Deloitte.

Learning in London, the financial capital of the world[

Opened in June 2015 on the 17th floor of The Shard, WBS London houses a 100-seat lecture theatre and a smaller one at 80 seats, plus eight seminar rooms and an IT lab. The Shard is situated next to London Bridge so getting to us from anywhere in London couldn’t be easier. Our Warwick campus is just over an hour’s train ride from London.

Constantly innovating

We have a long standing reputation for innovation and rightly so. We are a proud part of the global research power house that is the University of Warwick. Our desire to do things differently lies in our foundations, our research, our academics and our methods of teaching. This is evidenced by our ground breaking research in areas such as Big Data and Behavioural Science and by the fact leadership is embedded in, rather than added on to the Warwick Executive MBA.

Our desire to challenge the status quo through our creative approach to teaching uses different scenarios and elements of acting to empower executives to discover new approaches and solutions to some of the biggest business issues.

Creating influential global leaders

The success of our approach is evident as our graduates are making an impact in all sectors and all areas of the world. From leading management consultancies to start-ups, from charities to FTSE 100 companies, our graduates are global leaders operating out of over 140 countries.

Business begins here, lives are transformed, leaders are created.
