Months of entry
Medical Robotics and Image-Guided Intervention are two technology-driven areas of medicine that have experienced tremendous growth and improvement over the last twenty years, partly driven by the surgical aim of progressively less invasive and harmful treatments.
This is a multidisciplinary field and is led by three internationally-known departments:
- the Hamlyn Centre for Medical Robotics (part of the Institute of Global Health Innovation)
- the Department of Surgery and Cancer
- the Department of Computing
All teaching and research will take place in the leading facilities of the Hamlyn Centre.
Taught modules include a mixture of engineering and medical topics such as medical robotics and instrumentation, minimally invasive surgery, surgical imaging and optics, image guided intervention, perception and ergonomics.
You will spend nine months working on a cutting-edge research project.
