Master Oncoplastic Breast Surgery (Part time) - Máster en Cirugía de mama oncoplastica
Open to medical graduates (MBCHB, MBBS and equivalents), Post MRCS or equivalent and those with ATLS provider or instructor status, this innovative, highly practical and academically rigorous programme is aimed at those committed to a career devoted to improving trauma care. The part-time taught component (Part 1) consists of 5 clinical and 2 research methods modules which are delivered in 5 and 3 day blocks respectively. The clinical modules are arranged sequentially to take the students from immediate management, critical care, and on to healing recovery in the first 3 modules. The subsequent modules are devoted to regional trauma & ortho-plastic trauma reconstruction.
The first of the research methods modules focuses upon effective literature searches, critical appraisal of literature and the development of a portfolio reflecting this, and the second is dedicated to the preparation of a dissertation proposal. Part 2 is the completion of the dissertation itself.
The Programme is open to medical graduates who are post MRCS (or equivalent) and have also successfully completed the ATLS programme. The Civilian Programme is intended for those in the specialties of Trauma & Orthopaedics, Burns & Plastic Surgery and Maxillo-facial Surgery. However, applications from all surgical specialties are considered.
Applicants must be able to demonstrate a credible commitment to a career in trauma surgery/care irrespective of their chosen specialty.
