These programmes of study combine specialist endovascular surgical training with evidence-based medical research skills. Specialist endovascular training is provided under the guidance of vascular surgeons from the Western Vascular Institute. The curriculum is taught through hands-on, supervised training, supervised sessions in the endovascular surgery teaching lab and weekly scheduled meetings.
Candidates will complete core modules in Informatics, Research Methods, Biostatistics and Surgical Education. In addition, candidates will work independently with the support of a supervisor to carry out an original piece of research relevant to their healthcare setting.
Assessment is via continuous assessment, evaluation of contribution to group discussions, module projects and research thesis.
