How to apply
The programme develops new areas of teaching to reflect contemporary research and scholarship, and ensures that the themes of surgery and education are always linked.
It aims to attract highly motivated UK and overseas students who are seeking a good basis from which to assume more responsibility and take on a leadership role in this rapidly growing field (in deaneries, surgical colleges, school of surgery, universities or hospitals), and those who intend to go on and study for a PhD.
