The MSc in Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery aims to meet the personal, professional and educational requirements of surgeons continuing their professional development within the clinical field of laparoscopic surgery. It will enable you to develop your knowledge and extend and advance your clinical practice to achieve competence in the principles of Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery. This course will provide you with the breadth and depth of experience to fully engage with all aspects of Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery, as well as practical training with simulators.
During this course you will undertake laparoscopic simulation training based at the ICENI Centre and you will also have access to the Broomfield Robotic Centre based at Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford. The ICENI Centre is internationally recognised as a leading centre of excellence in the field of minimally invasive surgery.
