Vascular & Endovascular Surgery (Online Learning)

This programme is delivered by the University in partnership with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, and leads to the award of Master of Surgery (ChM). It runs alongside clinical training and complements in-the-workplace training. Based on the UK Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum, it offers trainees in vascular and endovascular surgery the opportunity to study topics relevant to the specialty and supports preparation for final professional exit exams such as FRCS and FEBVS. Your study will allow you to improve your evidence-based knowledge and enhance your clinical practice. On completion of this programme students will be able to: - demonstrate in-depth knowledge of their chosen surgical sub-specialty, and be able to apply this knowledge to the systematic assessment and management of surgical patients in the elective, urgent and emergency clinical setting - recognise the leadership contribution and responsibilities of the surgeon in the multidisciplinary management of complex surgical disease - critically reflect upon day-to-day surgical practice in the context of recent advances, and engage in critical dialogue with peers and experts in other specialties - apply the general principles of clinical study design, ethics, and statistics to critically evaluate the scientific literature in surgical research, and make informed judgements on new and emerging issues in surgery - exercise a high level of autonomy and initiative in professional activities at a level of independent surgical practice
