UCL's Perioperative Medicine MSc will provide an internationally recognised qualification, and on completion students will be equipped to pioneer progress and develop quality improvements in this new field. This will greatly enhance individual clinical practice, in addition to furthering opportunities in academia, education, management and leadership roles.
Perioperative Medicine MSc is a higher degree with real value in the workplace as it prepares graduates for senior positions in the field. Students will develop a deep understanding of the evidence base, and utilising this to effect changes in perioperative process and outcome is central to the programme.
Perioperative medicine is a new and exciting specialty, currently with few high-quality training opportunities. UCL's Perioperative Medicine Group has brought together an expert multidisciplinary team dedicated to providing excellence in perioperative medicine. This is reflected in our key involvement in societies such as Evidence Based Perioperative Medicine (EBPOM) and the journal, Perioperative Medicine.
UCL is home to a centre of academic excellence, Surgical Outcomes Research Centre (SOuRCe). Through this association, the Perioperative Medicine Group has attracted collaborations with an international faculty of experts in this new and exciting specialty. This wealth of knowledge and expertise has enabled the development of a high-quality programme delivered directly by experts to students.
This new programme, delivered by innovative e-learning methods seeks to develop an international community of learners, not limited by distance, who will benefit from shared online educational activities.
