The University of Edinburgh: Edinburgh Surgery Online
Flexible, part-time online Masters courses designed to meet the needs of the modern surgeon in training.
The University of Edinburgh and The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh offer a range of part-time, online masters Programmes to support the junior and advanced surgical trainee. All of our programmes are taught by online learning designed to run alongside clinical training and complement in-the-workplace assessment.
The MSc in Surgical Sciences is a three-year part-time programme which supports the academic and professional development of trainees in the early years of surgical training. It is appreciated that the traditional approach of taking “time out” for a period of research training might not be appropriate for all training surgeons but the MSc will offer you a unique way of developing your research and educational skills while continuing to practise in the clinical environment. Furthermore, it will provide you with recognition of academic achievement and a strong foundation with which to progress through surgical training. The MSc has been accredited by RACS since 2012 and we have had more than two hundred students from Australia and New Zealand to date.
