Surgical Oncology

This module will be taught by a blended learning approach with students doing a mixture of self directed and directed distance learning, combined with 3 days of intensive directed learning on campus. The module will require students to critically assess the evidence behind the management of solid tumours. Multidisciplinary approaches to perioperative care will be discussed, and the principles of surgical management, recent advances and future perspectives will be taught.

  • Critically discuss the evidence for and current best practice in the surgical management of a range of tumour types, e.g. GI, Gynae, Urological, breast, hepatobiliary.

  • Critically discuss recent advances in surgical management, minimal access technique and modern imaging technologies
