Course content

This two-year, part-time masters programme is offered jointly by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and the University of Edinburgh, and is taught entirely online. Both institutions have combined well previously to deliver an award-winning Master’s programme to support early surgical training, and continue to serve as a powerful brand in surgery.

You will be taught by experienced tutors – all leading clinicians in their field – and you will have access to well-defined and managed learning resources and educational material, including an unparalleled online library facility.

Illustrative cases will cover technical skills and procedures as well as core knowledge and clinical skills.
