The MSc in Surgical Sciences
If you are focused on a career in surgery you will need to turn your attention to the demands of sitting the Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS) examination and competing for surgical training posts. This unique programme helps you both work towards passing your MRCS exam and gain a highly regarded MSc in Surgical Sciences. The first two years follow the UK Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum and prepare students for the MRCS exam. The third and final year allows the student to undertake a research project that can be focused on their own specialist surgical area of interest and leads to an MSc in Surgical Sciences.
