"It was a very pleasant surprise to receive the ASGBI bursary following my first year of the ChM programme. I have found my studies in the programme to be both enjoyable and invigorating. The discussions in those Topics with my peers and tutors were particularly rewarding and clinically very relevant.This recognition by the ASGBI is very much appreciated."
The Master of Surgery Programme is run jointly by the College of Medicine & Veterinary Medicine, University of Edinburgh, and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. Aligned with the ISCP curriculum, the course supports surgical trainees in their preparation for the intercollegiate FRCS (Fellow of Royal College of Surgeons) examination, whilst also providing an academic qualification for those in run-through training.
The ASGBI officially accredited the programme in 2011 as it was impressed by the high standard of the flexible, advanced training of the programme, linked with an academic degree which follows the intercollegiate fellowship examinations curriculum.
