About the course
This is the first dedicated UK microsurgery degree in this innovative and rapidly developing field.
This Distance Learning programme will provide surgeons with comprehensive training in microsurgery and clinical management. It will improve confidence in microsurgery for both the trainee microsurgeon and the more experienced surgeon. Modules will enable surgeons to develop a thorough knowledge of clinical anatomy and physiology relevant to microsurgery which can impact on operative decisions.
There will be hands-on training through Microsurgery and Flap courses providing crucial and invaluable training which will broaden surgeons’ skills and expertise. (Basic microsurgery, advanced microsurgery, perforator flap and live animal flap courses).
The importance of evidence-based practice will be developed through critique of microsurgery literature and synthesis of balanced views, impacting on surgeons' practices.
An international microsurgery fellowship will be facilitated with a highly reputable microsurgery team. This includes centres such as in Seoul (Korea), Okayama (Japan), Naples (Italy), Timisoara (Romania) and St Andrews (Broomfield Hospital, UK). However, students will also have the option to participate in a fellowship at their local unit.
