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: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
