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: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.

Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
