Distance learning Master Degrees in Urology 2020 in Europe
A master degree is a type of graduate qualification that allows students to become specialists in their chosen fields. Designed for those who have previously completed a bachelor's degree, these programs are about two years in length.
Urology programs prepare students to perform surgery on and provide medical management for the urinary tract, the female pelvic floor and the male reproductive system. Students learn the anatomy of these areas, as well as the causes and treatments of diseases affecting them.

Based on the UK Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum, it offers trainees in vascular and endovascular surgery the opportunity to study topics relevant to the speciality and supports preparation for final professional exit exams such as FRCS and FEBU. Your study will allow you to improve your evidence-based knowledge and enhance your clinical practice.
On completion of this programme, trainees will be able to:
demonstrate in-depth knowledge of their chosen surgical sub-specialty, and be able to apply this knowledge to the systematic assessment and management of surgical patients in the elective, urgent and emergency clinical setting
recognise the leadership contribution and responsibilities of the surgeon in the multidisciplinary management of complex surgical disease
critically reflect upon day-to-day surgical practice in the context of recent advances, and engage in critical dialogue with peers and experts in other sub-specialities
apply the general principles of clinical study design, ethics, and statistics to critically evaluate the scientific literature in surgical research, and make informed judgements on new and emerging issues in surgery
exercise a high level of autonomy and initiative in professional activities at a level of independent surgical practice
