The course will provide a valuable opportunity for medical graduates who have completed their pre-registration year and wish to progress to a surgical career. It will allow the candidate to study a highly relevant area and to obtain a higher academic qualification to enhance their prospects in obtaining a training number. In addition, the course will be attractive to overseas graduates who wish to enhance their knowledge of the latest advances in surgery and perhaps develop specialist interest in one of the fields to further their careers. For suitably able students, the course may stimulate them to consider progressing on to further studies for an MPhil/PhD or MD/MS studies.
