Chelmsford, ICENI Centre, Broomfield Robotic Centre

Overview

Our course will provide you with the breadth and depth of experience to fully engage with all aspects of minimally invasive and robotic surgery including the latest technological advances.
You’ll undertake laparoscopic simulation training, based at the ICENI Centre in Colchester, and you’ll also have access to the Robotic Centre at Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford. The ICENI Centre is internationally recognised as a leading centre of excellence in the field of minimally invasive surgery. It combines the advanced multidisciplinary laparoscopic techniques practised at Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust, with the highest-quality research infrastructure established here at Anglia Ruskin University.
We’re home to the Postgraduate Medical Institute (PMI), which has its own £10 million building on our Chelmsford campus. It features state-of-the-art laboratory and training facilities and lecture theatres linked with partner hospital sites. In conjunction with Colchester Hospital University Foundation Trust, we’ve funded a £2 million building specifically for minimally-invasive surgery research and a training centre.
Designed by clinical experts, the course will prepare you to advance your career development and opportunities in this area of surgical specialism. On successful completion of this programme, you will be awarded a Master of Surgery which entitles you to use

The MSc in Surgical Science and Practice is a part-time, modular course completed in two to three years by surgical trainees.

Delivered in collaboration with the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences (http://www.nds.ox.ac.uk/) it is designed to prepare senior surgical trainees for life as independent specialists by providing key skills and knowledge essential for modern practice, which are not fully represented or are omitted from most postgraduate training curricula. The course is unique as its part-time nature is designed to allow students to fit their study around work.

The MSc in Surgical Science and Practice provides a foundation in some of the most important additional life long skills which the future leaders of the profession need to acquire. Surgeons in the future will work as part of multi-disciplinary teams in complex organisations, and will need to adapt and develop new skills and roles throughout their professional lives. Thus the syllabus covers management skills, quality improvement, leadership, teamwork and patient safety, as well as an introduction to the principles of medical education and clinical research methods. The knowledge gained during this course will stand students in good stead throughout their careers.
