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.

The rise of trauma:

The incidence of trauma continues to rise. The World Health Organization estimates that by 2020 trauma will become the leading cause of death worldwide due to ageing in Western populations, increasing road use in developing countries and conflict. In England alone there are at least 20,000 cases of major trauma each year resulting in 5,400 deaths and many others resulting in permanent disabilities requiring long-term care. There are around a further 28,000 cases which, although not meeting the precise definition of major trauma, would be cared for in the same way.

Major trauma costs the NHS between £0.3 and £0.4 billion a year in immediate treatment, but when considering the costs of subsequent hospital treatments, rehabilitation, home care support, informal carer costs and the annual lost economic output as a result of major trauma is estimated to be between £3.3 and £3.7 billion (National Audit Office, Major Trauma Care in England, 2010).

Neurotrauma alone - including mild traumatic brain injury, which does not fit into the definition of major trauma - is the leading cause of death and disability in the first 4 decades of life and is estimated to cost the UK economy £8 billion a year (more than stroke). Many countries around the world now recognise the importance of trauma research to their health care systems and are developing specialist research programmes of to meet the growing needs of their population. This expansion in specialist clinical provision is generating demand for professionals with a recognised background of trauma sciences training.

Trauma is one of the world’s leading killers and is responsible for the loss of more life-years than any other disease. War is predicted to be the 6th leading cause of death by 2020. Opportunities for the training of military trauma care specialists are extremely limited, and many defence agencies rely on the deployment situation as the primary training for their personnel. All countries, developed and developing recognise the importance of trauma to their health care systems. With global disasters, humanitarian crises and mass casualty events on the rise, the importance of specialist training in the science and management of these events is increasingly important.
This distance-learning course will provide student’s a broad and critical understanding of the most up-to-date science and practice of trauma care in these environments. A summer school incorporating simulated scenario training (consistent with the student’s scope of practice) will complement the didactic learning to provide practical knowledge and experience of decision-making and the safe, professional delivery of core clinical functions in the management of seriously injured patients.

It has a rich pedigree and is offered in collaboration between London's most established major trauma centre, the UK's lead centre for research into Complex Trauma Care and one of the oldest medical schools in the world.

Trauma is one of the world's leading killers and is responsible for a significant proportion of the global burden of disease. Improving survival and outcomes following traumatic injury has been identified as a key priority by the World Health Organization and orthopaedic injuries pose a major clinical challenge world-wide.

This two year online distance-learning course commences in October 2014 and uses novel teaching and assessment techniques. It will provide a broad and critical understanding of the most up-to-date science and practice of trauma care, with a particular focus on orthopaedic and ortho-plastic management. It combines an international expert faculty with technology-enhanced learning so that students can readily access knowledge from around the world at a time and place of their choosing. Interactive discussion forums and one to one tutor sessions help to engender an inclusive and supportive community, as well as facilitating a worldwide network of contacts with shared interests.

This is further developed by an optional 2-week residential summer school at the end of the first year in London. This incorporates simulated scenario training to complement the didactic learning and to provide practical knowledge and experience of decision-making and the safe, professional delivery of core clinical functions in the management of seriously injured patients. The second year of study entails a written dissertation on a specific area of knowledge or original research.

The largest growth area for jobs in orthopaedics has been in trauma over recent years. This course is tailored to meet the needs of international graduates from all healthcare and health sciences backgrounds including surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses, operating department staff, allied health professionals and those with a specialist interest in orthopaedic trauma education and training.

It is intended to provide high-quality learning, no matter where (or when!) you are in the world, in order to develop the future leaders in the science and practice of orthopaedic trauma.
