World First for University of Surrey Postgraduate Medical School

01.12.2005


The University of Surrey’s (UniS) Postgraduate Medical School’s (PGMS) first clinical postgraduate taught degree programme got off to a flying start earlier this month - not only is it the first clinical postgraduate programme to be delivered by PGMS, but it is also the first clinical MSc programme for gynaecologists of its kind in the world.



The MSc in Advanced Gynaecological Endoscopy is a collaborative programme run between the University of Surrey’s Postgraduate Medical School and the British Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy trust (BSGE). The Programme Director, Dr Karen Ballard, works closely with the President of the BSGE, also the programme’s clinical director, Mr Jeremy Wright to bring together both clinical skills and academic knowledge. Dr Brian Gennery, Acting Head of School, commented that this is a tremendous accolade for Surrey and will serve as a model for the development of future clinical programmes within PGMS.

The MSc is specifically designed to dovetail into the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists’ intermediate training programme and aims to develop advanced clinical skills in gynaecological endoscopy, as well as fostering a critical understanding of the evidence underpinning the principles of gynaecological endoscopy. Students therefore gain hands-on practical skills training at an advanced level, as well as a firm knowledge base in the more theoretical aspects that surround the subject.


The clinical skills of specialist gynaecologists from Ashford and St Peter’s NHS Trust, the Royal Surrey County Hospital, and members of the BSGE, combine with the academic skills of PGMS staff to deliver the modules within an environment of first class teaching and state of the art clinical skills training facilities in the new PGMS building.

The programme, designed for specialist registrars and consultant grades, attracts students from the UK as well as abroad and has proved to be incredibly popular; the first intake was oversubscribed and many places on next year’s intake are already reserved.

Im Focus: Quantum optical sensor for the first time tested in space – with a laser system from Berlin

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

HZI researchers decipher infection mechanisms of Yersinia and immune responses of the host

Yersiniae cause severe intestinal infections. Studies using Yersinia pseudotuberculosis as a model organism aim to elucidate the infection mechanisms of these...

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Im Focus: Studying fundamental particles in materials

Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
