Our MRes in Medical Robotics and Image-Guided Intervention provides you with the research experience required to work within the highly innovative field of medical robotics and surgical technology.
Medical Robotics and Image-Guided Interventions are two technology-driven areas of medicine that have experienced significant growth and improvement over the last twenty years, due to developments of less invasive treatments.
This is a multidisciplinary field and is led by three internationally-known departments:
All teaching and research will take place in the brand new facilities of the Hamlyn Centre, which was founded by Professor Guang-Zhong Yang and Professor The Lord Ara Darzi, supported by a major endowment from Lady Hamlyn and the Helen Hamlyn Trust, as well as a major medical robotics infrastructure grant from the Wolfson Foundation and the National Institute for Health Research.
Taught modules include a mixture of engineering and medical topics such as medical robotics and instrumentation, minimally invasive surgery, surgical imaging and optics, image guided intervention, perception and ergonomics.
By the end of your studies you will have a broad general knowledge of the current technology used in clinical work, and an interdisciplinary knowledge of how to work in collaboration with surgeons to develop new technological advances.
You will also have experience in the methodology and principles of conducting research with application to clinical medicine and surgery, and the skills required to have a successful career within industry, or an academic research position such as a PhD studentship.

By the end of the course you will have a broad general knowledge of the current technology used in clinical work, an interdisciplinary knowledge of working in collaboration with surgeons to develop new technological advances, and experience in the methodology and principles of conducting research with application to clinical medicine and surgery.
You complete your studies with the skills required to have a successful career within industry, or an academic research position such as a PhD studentship.
You are provided with advanced research skills valued both in academia and industry. Graduates are well placed to apply for further study at PhD level in leading universities, which provides an opportunity to pursue your chosen research area covered in the individual project.
We anticipate that this qualification will become widely recognised for students pursuing a career in these areas and the quality will be backed up by the Hamlyn Centre with its world-leading reputation for translational research quality.
