You’ll undertake laparoscopic simulation training, based at the ICENI Centre in Colchester. The ICENI Centre is internationally recognised as a leading centre of excellence in the field of minimally invasive surgery. It combines the advanced multidisciplinary laparoscopic techniques practised at Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust, with the highest-quality research infrastructure established here at Anglia Ruskin University.

Designed by clinical experts, the course will prepare you to advance your career development and opportunities in this area of surgical specialism.
