About

The MSc in Surgical Science and Practice from the University of Oxford is a part-time course which provides a strong foundation in some of the most important additional skills the future leaders of the surgical profession will need to acquire. 

Overview

About this course

The MSc in Surgical Science and Practice from the University of Oxford prepares senior surgical trainees for life as independent specialists and focuses on key skills and knowledge essential for modern practices, some of which are not fully represented or are omitted from most graduate training curricula. The modular nature of the course allows you to fit study around your work.

The programme will appeal to trainees in all surgical disciplines and to newly qualified consultants/specialists who seek to enhance their understanding and professional skills. Applicants will usually be in the later years of their surgical training.

Surgeons work as part of multidisciplinary teams in complex organisations, and will need to adapt and develop new skills and roles throughout their professional lives. The MSc syllabus covers management skills, quality improvement, leadership, teamwork and patient safety, development and implementation of surgical technologies, as well as an introduction to the principles of medical education and clinical research methods. It also includes taught material on research skills. The knowledge gained during the course will stand you in good stead throughout your career.

You will complete six modules which are taught by experts in their field:

  • Becoming a Clinical Educator
  • Human Factors, Teamwork and Communication
  • Leadership and Management in Healthcare
  • Quality Improvement Science and Systems Analysis
  • Healthcare Innovation and Technology
  • Practice of Evidence-Based Health Care

Programme Structure

Modules of the course:
  • Each module includes a period of preparatory study and one week of face-to-face teaching in Oxford, which is then followed by a period for assignment work. 
  • The modules can be studied in any order and each module normally takes place once a year giving you the opportunity to individualise your patterns of study. 
  • It is expected that students will spend 10-15 hours per week in private study working on assignments and dissertations in addition to time spent in classes or participating in on-line learning.
