Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery (MCh (Masters of Surgery))

Course Description

Advance your clinical practice to achieve competency with the latest developments and techniques in minimally invasive and robotic surgery, with our MCh in Chelmsford and Colchester.

See the website http://www.anglia.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/minimally-invasive-and-robotic-surgery

Our course will provide you with the breadth and depth of experience to fully engage with all aspects of minimally invasive and robotic surgery including the latest technological advances.

You’ll undertake laparoscopic simulation training, based at the ICENI Centre in Colchester, and you’ll also have access to the Broomfield Robotic Centre at Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford. The ICENI Centre is internationally recognised as a leading centre of excellence in the field of minimally invasive surgery. It combines the advanced multidisciplinary laparoscopic techniques practised at Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust, with the highest-quality research infrastructure established here in Anglia Ruskin University.

We're home to the Postgraduate Medical Institute (PMI), which has its own £10 million building on our Chelmsford campus. It features state-of-the-art laboratory and training facilities and lecture theatres linked with partner hospital sites. In conjunction with Colchester Hospital University Foundation Trust, we’ve funded a £2 million building specifically for minimally-invasive surgery research and a training centre.

Thanks to our close relationships with the major clinical-care providers in the east of England, there are significant opportunities for collaboration and student placements across a variety of clinical sites.

We offer exciting opportunities for research and education in the allied health professions. We also translate science and epidemiology into health education and primary care, and deliver taught Master’s programmes to qualified medics. We have a flourishing community of PhD and MD(Res) students across all of our research fields.

Our advanced learning facilities include state-of-the-art clinical skills laboratories and simulation suites, which mirror real-life clinical situations. We also have a fantastic, modern library and a wide range of science labs and ICT suites.
