Surgery and Interventional Science
iBSc in Surgical Sciences
With changes in higher surgical training, there is an identified need to introduce the concept of research methodology for surgical trainees early in their career, so that they become equipped to contribute fully to advancing medical care and the application of evidence-based medicine.
The intercalated BSc in Surgical Sciences is only available to current UCL students. It introduces surgical skills and research methodology to medical trainees early in their career, in a way which is not available in the standard undergraduate curriculum.
The programme is aimed at those who want to find out about how surgery and science come together in current surgical practice but also includes a batch of transferable skills to help each student develop a confident and professional approach to the application of scientific principles in medicine, whatever their future career plans may be.
