Overview

Barts and the London School of Medicine, Queen Mary University of London; TRAUMA.ORG and the Royal College of Surgeons of England are pleased to announce three innovative Masters programmes - A Masters in Trauma Sciences, a Masters in Trauma Sciences (Military & Austere) and a Masters in Orthopaedic Trauma Sciences. Click here for more information about the Masters in Orthopaedic Trauma Sciences.

These international MSc programmes are delivered in a modern e-learning environment as part-time distance-learning courses over two years. The course is tailored to the needs of international graduates from all healthcare and health sciences backgrounds. We are building these courses to provide high-quality learning no matter where you are in the world, and to develop the leaders of the future in the science and practice of trauma.

Masters in Trauma Sciences

Trauma is one of the world’s biggest killers and is responsible for the loss of more life-years than any other disease. All countries recognise the importance of trauma to their health care systems. Many countries are actively pursuing rationalization and specialization programmes. This distance-learning course will provide you with a broad and critical understanding of the most up-to-date science and practice of trauma care. A summer school incorporating simulated scenario training (consistent with your scope of practice) will complement the didactic learning to provide practical knowledge and experience of decision-making and the safe, professional delivery of core clinical functions in the management of seriously injured patients.

Masters in Trauma Sciences (Military & Austere)

War is predicted to be the sixth leading cause of death by 2020 and humanitarian disasters are rife across the world. Opportunities for the training of military trauma care specialists are extremely limited, and many defence agencies rely on the deployment situation as the primary training for their personnel. All countries, developed and developing recognise the importance of trauma to their health care systems. With global disasters, humanitarian crises and mass casualty events on the rise, the importance of specialist training in the science and management of these events is increasingly important.

This distance-learning course will provide you with a broad and critical understanding of the most up-to-date science and practice of trauma care in these environments. A summer school incorporating simulated scenario training (consistent with your scope of practice) will complement the didactic learning to provide practical knowledge and experience of decision-making and the safe, professional delivery of core clinical functions in the management of seriously injured patients.

Course Structure

The MSc programmes are 2-year distance learning courses delivered entirely online apart from a 2-week summer school between the two years. The first year is an interactive learning programme covering the full breadth and depth of the trauma sciences. The second year is a written dissertation on a specific area of knowledge or original research.
