Prospective students interested in applying for the MSc Surgical programmes and surgeons in training are invited to attend.
How will the landscape for digital health and medical education look post-COVID-19?
Digital health is disrupting healthcare and education, as a college or a training provider working on digital education, how can you engage in this world for providing technical & non-technical skills training remotely.
In October 2005 Barts Cancer Institute, Queen Mary University of London launched the world’s first course in acquiring surgical skills by virtual reality simulation to “Globalise & Fast-Track Surgical Training”
During this conversation with Prof Bijendra Patel, we will cover digital education and innovation as a tool to:
The COVID-19 outbreak had a significant impact on surgical training. This survey aims to quantify this and help find ways to overcome this. Thank you for taking the time to complete this.

Prof Bijendra Patel is a surgeon and a world leader in integrating technology-enhanced learning for medical education. In October 2005, he pioneered this concept by creating the world’s first Master’s course in acquiring surgical skills by virtual reality simulation (MSc Surgical Skills and Sciences) at the Barts Cancer Institute, Queen Mary University of London to “Globalise And Fast-Track Surgical Training”
He has also pioneered the concept of “Hands-on Laparoscopic Surgical Training On-line" for globalisation of surgical education by launching world’s first immersive distance learning Master’s course in 2018 based on competency-based training model and surgical simulation using multimedia platform including VR, eLearning, Mobile phone and Portable box trainer.
He is also founder president of the Society of Surgical Simulation and also the founder and editor-in-chief of the Journal of Surgical Simulation, the first academic journal dedicated to publishing research in the fields of surgical simulation.
