Coloproctology (Part time) (MS)
Norwich Medical School at the University of East Anglia have developed the first higher degree qualification in coloproctology in the UK.
The traditional Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS) in General Surgery does not provide specialist recognition in coloproctology and a recent nationwide survey of more than 100 surgical trainees carried out via the Association of Surgeons in Training (ASIT) and The Dukes Club indicated that more than 60% of respondents thought a specialised MS qualification would be beneficial for a future career in coloproctology.
Due to European Working Time Regulations and shift patterns in work, time is one of the biggest obstacles trainees face in developing the skills and competencies required for a successful career in coloproctology. Our MS in Coloproctology is therefore designed to complement current training systems and prepare students for a year 1 consultant coloproctologist post.
Quality assurance given by UEA and The Royal College of Surgeons of England (RCS). Some of the faculty are Fellows of the RCS and play key roles in national training of coloproctology trainees.
