This two-year, part-time masters programme in Trauma and Orthopaedics (Online Learning) is offered by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and The University of Edinburgh, and leads to the degree of Master of Surgery (ChM).

About

Based on the UK Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum, the ChM in Trauma and Orthopaedics (Online Learning) at The University of Edinburgh provides the opportunity for trainees to select those advanced modules relevant to their declared specialty and supports learning for the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS) examinations.

The University of Edinburgh's programme is designed to run alongside clinical training and complement in-the-workplace assessment.

Career opportunities

Graduates will be able to demonstrate in-depth knowledge of their chosen surgical subspecialty and be able to apply this knowledge to the systematic assessment and management of surgical patients in the elective, urgent and emergency clinical setting.

Programme Structure

  • Year 1

Academic modules will explore research and teaching methodology, whilst enabling students to develop the ability to analyse published evidence and enhance their interactive and written clinical communication skills. Students will also have the opportunity to complete an academic research project in Year 2 e.g. Original research or a Systematic Review in a relevant area of work.

Students are supported throughout the programme through asynchronous discussions with e-tutors who are all leading clinicians in their field.

  • Year 2

Compulsory modules cover the core elements of the subsections of the orthopaedic syllabus. These are taught and assessed using a clinical problem-based approach, supported by systems-based review of the course material.

Having gained experience from the academic modules in the previous year, students will be expected to critically analyse reference material and where appropriate relate to their own work.
