Student Profile(s)

Jon Wells

"The MSc in Surgical Science and Practice has effectively introduced me to the science behind analysing what is done in theatre, and enabled me to pick up a range of collabortive research projects with a national and international group of researchers."

Jon Wells, Paediatric Surgery Registrar, Birmingham Children's Hospital, UK

Geoffrey Chiu

"The MSc in Surgical Science and Practice has provided me with a solid foundation to take my career to the next level as a successful surgeon, not only as a clinician but also as an educator and a manager. Through the course I have developed a skill set that will allow me to work effectively in a team that provides high quality care in today’s and tomorrow’s NHS. The course has provided me with opportunities that have broadened my horizons. Definitely a worthwhile investment, I have new and enhanced attributes that I will use for the rest of my surgical career.”

Geoffrey Chiu, Consultant Maxillofacial Surgeon, UK

Gabie de Jong

"The MSc Surgical Science and Practice covers critical aspects of the training of surgical specialists based on competencies. The teachers make you think out of the “doctors”-box; you are not just becoming a medical specialist, you will also be involved in research, quality improvement, teamwork, organisation, management, education etc. As a Dutch registrar, I found the discussions with international colleagues and teachers very insightful. Moreover, combining this part-time MSc (containing 6 short visits to lovely Oxford and mostly internet-based learning) with a regular training in your home country is very feasible. I would recommend it to every surgical registrar who is looking for a broader perspective on health care.”

Gabie de Jong, Surgical Registrar, The Netherlands
