About

Our course will provide you with the breadth and depth of experience to fully engage with all aspects of minimally invasive and robotic surgery including the latest technological advances.

You’ll undertake laparoscopic simulation training, based at the ICENI Centre in Colchester. The ICENI Centre is internationally recognised as a leading centre of excellence in the field of minimally invasive surgery. It combines the advanced multidisciplinary laparoscopic techniques practised at Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust, with the highest-quality research infrastructure established here in Anglia Ruskin University.

We're home to the Postgraduate Medical Institute (PMI), which has its own £10 million building on our Chelmsford campus. It features state-of-the-art laboratory and training facilities and lecture theatres linked with partner hospital sites. In conjunction with Colchester Hospital University Foundation Trust, we’ve funded a £2 million building specifically for minimally-invasive surgery research and a training centre.

Designed by clinical experts, the course will prepare you to advance your career development and opportunities in this area of surgical specialism. On successful completion you’ll be ideally suited to pursue a higher surgical training post or postgraduate study at MD or PhD level.
