Definitely a worthwhile investment, I have new and enhanced attributes that I will use for the rest of my surgical career.”

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
