Overview
 
This MSc is designed to support your knowledge of oral and maxillofacial surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, craniofacial surgery, ophthalmology, ENT and neurosurgery. It’s particularly suitable if you’re in surgical training and want to develop true multidisciplinary skills.
 
We’ll provide you with up-to-date and evidence-based multidisciplinary clinical practice in all aspects of facial trauma surgery. You’ll then be able to choose an area to specialise in.
 
You’ll cover subjects ranging from initial presentation and assessment (including airway provision, use of DICOM data and treatment planning) to the management of craniofacial fractures, acute soft tissue injuries and secondary reconstruction, including the psychological aspects of such surgery.
 
We’ll help you to gain excellent research skills: you’ll learn how to assess scientific literature, conduct a clinical audit and design a simple study. 
There is a week-long summer residential programme in your first year, where you’ll learn how to write a scientific paper based on your own cases, to the standard of peer-reviewed publication. There will also be opportunities for you to visit a unit for a week during the programme.
