The Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences (NDS) is the academic department of surgery at the University of Oxford. It hosts a multidisciplinary team of academic surgeons and scientists.
The Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences offers research training opportunities for both clinical and non-clinical graduate students. We have a growing number of full-time funded research student opportunities.
The research environment in NDS includes, for example, a long-established immunology, tolerance and transplantation biology group and well-established groups in bone cancer biology, islet-cell isolation and transplantation. It also includes cardiovascular, interventional radiology and functional neurosurgical groups.
The graduate research programme within NDS provides a fully-integrated training environment. You will be working closely with an academic supervisor who oversees your studies.
NDS also offers two graduate taught courses: the MSc in Integrated Immunology and, in collaboration with the Department for Continuing Education, the MSc in Surgical Science and Practice.
