Why Surgical Science and Practice at RCSI Dublin?
At RCSI, our goal is not just to teach you surgical techniques but also to facilitate your development as a professional surgeon.
The innovative one-year full-time Masters in Surgical Science and Practice programme presents a new approach to early surgical education and training – you will cover the entire curriculum for Core Surgical Training, as defined by the Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum Programme in just one year.
During your studies, you will acquire core knowledge and clinical skills through immersive simulation. New teaching modalities in this area include fully-immersive mock ward rounds, mock outpatient reviews, simulated nights on call and rounding on patients in high dependency and intensive care settings.
In addition to the knowledge, skills and behaviours components, you will also undertake a module which addresses various elements of professional development; inclusion of a bespoke module on preparation for professional practice includes health economics, health informatics and surgical innovation.
The overall aim of this programme is to prepare you for commencing surgical training in the clinical environment at a more advanced level, with documented and verifiable knowledge, skills and behaviours which will accelerate your training and contribute to enhanced patient safety.
