TRAINING & EDUCATION
ENROL IN MASTERS OF ADVANCED MINIMALLY-INVASIVE SURGERY
A degree written and directed by Mr Manish Chand at University College London
OPEN NOW: OCTOBER 2020
Mr Chand firmly believes in training and education of the current and next generation of surgeons. Training surgeons all over the world in new techniques and encouraging the democratisation of education across different regions has been a passion of his for many years. He has designed one of the most innovative degree programmes in advanced surgery at UCL.
The course will bring together world-renowned experts in their field to deliver state of the art training and cutting edge education using a variety of delivery styles. They will use a combination of face-to-face and online delivery of course materials alongside dedicated reading lists for offsite study. There will be more traditional didactic lectures comprising the whole group alongside more interactive tutorial sessions. In addition, critique of live and recorded surgery, assessment and teaching of surgical skills and telestration/telementoring to develop training models. This course will showcase many new innovative technologies to challenge students and traditional training and educational models. This will allow a more disruptive, immersive and practical programme.
In recent years, mixed reality (MR) has been used across a variety of industries to help visualise complex structures and design anything from buildings to kitchens and cars. Mixed reality is a continuum of virtual reality whereby computer-generated holograms are superimposed into the real world. This technology is underpinned by powerful miniature computers housed in compact headsets which are able to hold holographic models and project them in front of the user.
Mr Chand has pioneered the use of HoloLens in GI Surgery and is widely recognised for this cutting edge work. Bu using this technology, he is making surgery more precise and attempting to harness the power of these powerful tools to reduce error in surgery globally.
He leads a research group at UCL which work specifically to develop HoloLens applications for surgery.
