Master of Surgery (MCh) of Surgery by Module Testimonial
2023 intake

Applications for our full-time and part-time Master of Surgery (MCh) by Module are now open and will close on Monday, 17 July 2023​​​​

Read Gerard Sextons (Class of 2020) programme testimonial to learn more about how this programme has helped Gerard progress in his career in surgery.


“I completed the Master of Surgery programme in 2020 with the topic of my thesis being head and neck cancer in the elderly population of Ireland. I completed my thesis during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic and the support I received from the college during this uncertain time was superb. The primary feature of the MCh program from which I continue to benefit in my current practice is the instruction I received in research methodology - from designing a protocol to performing and interpreting my own statistical analysis, I was encouraged from the outset to undertake original research and provided with the tools I needed to make this a reality.


The support of both clinical and methodological supervisors further aids the prospective candidate.


The program also features a heavy emphasis on topics of immense value to the surgeons of tomorrow - ethical practice in surgical care, management and leadership in surgery, and the process of innovating medical devices, to name but a few.


I can wholeheartedly recommend the MCh program in RCSI as a stepping stone for anyone considering a career in surgery.”
