Urology Master of Surgery (MCh) course

Cambridge University Hospitals Trust in conjunction with Anglia Ruskin University have created one of the very few Masters in Surgery programmes in Urology in the UK.  It was designed, and is taught by consultant urologists based at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge which has an international reputation for excellence.

This 2 year part-time postgraduate course is intended for junior trainees before they begin a registrar programme in urology, although it is also open to urology registrars. It is theory-based, so you’ll be expected to do your hands-on clinical practice at your place of work. You’ll experience a mix of face-to-face and distance learning. It centres on the following strands, Clinical  application, Leadership/Service Development and Primary Research.

You’ll learn about the anatomy, basic sciences and pathophysiology of urological conditions, to aid effective diagnosis and determining appropriate surgical and non-surgical management pathways, so that when you complete the course you’ll be fully equipped to engage with all aspects of urology. Focussing on the protection of patients and setting the highest standards for practice, you’ll develop your problem-solving, critical-thinking and leadership skills so that you can identify problem areas, challenge accepted practice, and propose innovative and effective solutions. The course encourages exploring the roles of innovation, research and creativity in evaluating and influencing practice in order to improve service delivery.

Research design and methodology is a key aspect of the course, so you’ll be expected to conduct primary research via a dissertation or clinical study. This latter will need to be supported by a named supervisor in your own institute who will agree to do this for the duration of the masters.

The Department of Urology in Addenbrookes has a number clinical fellow posts advertised every year which are linked to this masters programme. If you are interested in joining the department as a clinical fellow (contributing to the on call and clinical services) while also working towards this masters degree, we would be pleased to hear from you.
