This is one of very few Master's programmes in urology in the UK. It was designed, and is taught, in partnership with consultant urologists at Cambridge University Hospitals Trust, which has an international reputation for excellence. The course is intended for junior trainees before they begin a registrar programme in urology, although it is also open to urology registrars. The course is theory-based, so students are expected to do their hands-on clinical practice at their place of work. Students experience a mix of face-to-face and distance learning. Students learn about the anatomy, basic sciences and path-physiology of urological conditions, to aid effective diagnosis and determining appropriate surgical and non-surgical management pathways, so that when they complete the course they are fully equipped to engage with all aspects of urology. Students focus on the protection of patients and setting the highest standards for practice. Students are encouraged to explore the roles of innovation, research and creativity in evaluating and influencing practice in order to improve service delivery.
