About our courses

The MSc in Surgical Sciences (Edinburgh Surgical Sciences Qualification, ESSQ) is based on the MRCS curriculum and taught components are delivered through case scenarios of common

surgical diseases, formative MCQs, and discussion forums.

The MSc Primary Care Ophthalmology provides optometrists, GPs, medical and surgical ophthalmology trainees and other eye health professionals with the opportunity to advance their understanding of primary care ophthalmology, in particular, Glaucoma, Macular Disease,

Acute Eye Disease and Vision Loss.

The ChM programmes are based on the UK Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum:

ChM in General Surgery

ChM in Trauma and Orthopaedics

ChM in Urology

ChM in Vascular and Endovascular Surgery

ChM in Clinical Ophthalmology

All of our ChMs support learning for the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS) examinations, and offer an alternative to clinical/laboratory research training for those students who do not wish to take time out of training. The MSc in Primary Care Ophthalmology and ChM

in Clinical Ophthalmology programmes follow the Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCOphth) curriculum, supporting junior and advanced ophthalmic trainees, respectively.
