Supporting flexible study patterns is more important than ever when balancing working time directives with the highest quality training. The University of East Anglia (UEA) Masters Course in Coloproctology meets this challenge, and offers added advantages over face-to-face delivery: our bespoke, flexible approach offers excellent opportunities for problem based training and assessment, access to a large specialist faculty, seamless communication with e-tutors/mentors, access to online resources, evidencing progress and development.
Our progamme is linked directly to the Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum Programme and is set at a more advanced level than the exit FRCS. We achieve this through a comprehensive syllabus with defined outcomes to ensure that you acquire expert subject knowledge. For the Post Graduate Diploma (PGDip) and Masters level, you can tailor the course to suit your career path. Surgical skills training combined with e-tutoring and access to the specialist faculty resource that this will offer, provides an exceptionally rich training experience, complementing and surpassing the knowledge requirements for the FRCS exam exit.
A Masters Degree tailored to professional development
The syllabus has been designed by our specialist faculty team to complement your real-world professional development. The Clinical Leadership and Management module develops clinical leadership, inter-personal skills, conflict resolution, developing new service and innovation, evaluation and delivery of the latest government policies. Our Integrated Research module empowers trainees to conduct and supervise research within the NHS setting, writing and succeeding in submitting research protocols, evaluating research methodologies and literature reviews.
Our e-learning Masters course, developed with support from the Royal College of Surgeons (England) offers a flexible and innovative training programme to help you achieve your goals. Currently, this course is the only programme to qualify specialists in colorectal surgery.
Our philosophy is to promote setting standards at this specialist level, tailored to your individual circumstances. Our aim is to prepare, assess and qualify you for year –1 level consultant specialist practice. This will be achieved through a combination of rigorous and engaging online activities and practical assessment of your surgical, communication and decision-making skills.
