Institute of Excellence in Robotic Surgery

Our MSc Robotic Surgery (Simulation) is delivered by the School of Medicine in partnership with East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust (ESNEFT) and The Institute of Excellence in Robotic Surgery (TIERS).

Delivered online, our MSc Core Concepts in Robotic Surgery starts with a core module, Principles of Robotic Surgery. You'll then be able to choose a 30-credit optional module of your choice; two of these modules focus on specific areas of surgery.

In Year 2, you'll complete the compulsory Postgraduate Research Design module. It will help you plan your Postgraduate Research Project, and to develop a robust understanding of how to interpret the research findings of others. The Research Project is an opportunity to address a particular question or gap in knowledge in your area of specialism. Year 2 also features a range of optional modules.

This course has been developed in response to a joint initiative between ARU and East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust (ESNEFT) to enhance excellence in robotic surgery across the region.

*This course is currently going through re-validation so modules might change
