WHY MCH SURGERY?

We are pleased to deliver an innovative Level 7 Masters, MCh in Surgery with four individual awards in the specialist surgical pathways of:

  • Orthopaedics and Regenerative Medicine
  • Otorhinolaryngology
  • Urology
  • Ophthalmology

Surgical pathways such as in General Surgery and Gynaecology and Emergency Obstetrics are planned to be included for the near future. 

The theme of regenerative medicine and the teaching of practical skills through simulation runs through each of the specialist pathways and modules.

Visit the website for further information on pathways.

WHAT ARE THE AIMS OF THE COURSE?

In order for you to be able to think in an innovative manner and to be prepared for modern challenges in surgery, this programme aims to develop your scientific insight into current and emerging technologies that will inform your clinical practice and help you to apply basic scientific discoveries to your clinical work for the benefit of your patients.

It aims to facilitate you to develop a critical understanding of current novel and potentially beneficial therapies that use regenerative medicine and digital health platforms in a way that will inspire and encourage you to use this knowledge and develop your own ideas. To be a competent, safe and compassionate surgeon, you need to be able to develop your critical, analytical and problem solving abilities. 

The programme therefore will enable you to critically and analytically consider the evidence base presented to you, to confidently challenge this evidence and make comprehensive, considered and robust decisions on patient care. In doing so you will be enabled to think and work creatively and intellectually which in turn will stimulate you to search for new knowledge for the benefit of your patients and health care provision. 

Further, this programme will enable you to be a lifelong learner, having developed critical, analytical and evaluative skills at Masters level, to undertake your own high quality research and search for innovation, which in turn will further progress your area of expertise.

WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

This MCh in Surgery, with its four specialist surgical pathways, is aimed at doctors who are at ST1 level and above and provides an essential educational component for you while you are progressing in your surgical training.

If you are an international medical graduate, this programme will be especially suitable for you – we have designed it so that it will allow you the maximum opportunities to learn both the theory and practice if you do not hold a GMC registration. If you wish to be considered to be sponsored by the University for a one year GMC registration, you will need to meet the criteria set by both the University and the GMC. 

Take a look at the international eligibility criteria

As well as giving you a very competitive and enhanced surgical training portfolio, gaining this MCh will enable you to continue your post graduate medical education at a higher level such as an MD or PhD if you wish to in the future.
