Surgical Skills and Science
The Queen Mary’s Surgical Skills & Science Summer School is designed for students who aim to follow a career in surgery, or allied healthcare professionals who need to acquire basic surgical techniques. Combining traditional teaching with hands-on practice and simulation, the course aims to deliver comprehensive training on basic surgical skills, as well as introduce fundamental research methodology. Experienced and approachable instructors will allow participants to learn and practise in a safe and friendly environment. The on-site laparoscopic surgery training facilities will provide a unique immersive experience into simulation-based learning, ranging from 3D trainer boxes to the use of virtual reality. To ensure a genuine hands-on experience, animal tissue will be used to enhance the participants’ experience and consolidate their learning.
To deliver comprehensive training on basic surgical skills, as well as introduce fundamental research methodology.
You will study one course per Queen Mary Summer School session. Each course is worth 15 Queen Mary credits.
Usually, the 15 credits we award for each three-week Queen Mary Summer School session translate to 3–4 credits in the US system and 7.5 ECTS in the European system.
Your home institution should confirm if they will grant credit for Summer School courses. Whilst we will do everything we can to support you throughout the Summer School application process, it's your responsibility to check with your home institution if you can transfer credit from the Summer School prior to arriving at Queen Mary.
