This award-winning MSc qualification in Surgical Sciences is unique compared to other distance online learning programmes. Surgical trainees, like me, have a busy on-call rota and need flexibility to learn. ESSQ definitely fulfils the above criteria to suit my needs. Online case study discussions with experts of their own remit and numerous online multiple choice questions have given me a quantum leap to pass my MRCS examination.
Most importantly, in my third and final year of ESSQ, I learnt the generic and transferrable research skills on how to discover and contribute new knowledge to the current surgical science. This qualification is not just an MSc I put behind my name; it is a qualification that equips me with the qualities to excel both academically and clinically in my surgical career.
