In a single program, this professional master’s degree has all the information necessary for the care required by patients with severe burns. The multidisciplinary aspect of the specialization is noteworthy, as these patients are extremely complex and require many specialists working together, with the aim of achieving a rapid recovery. 

In addition to the complete and fully up-to-date information, it offers the greatest experience from the teaching staff in the treatment of this type of patient. This experience is very valuable since there are very few burn wards and, therefore, the possibility of specialization is scarce.

An innovative part of this professional master’s degree is that the theoretical information is complemented with graphs, diagrams, clinical case studies and explanatory videos that will be very useful to retain the information. It also highlights the main developments and provides recommended readings for many topics, especially for those that are new or controversial. As for the case studies, many of them are based on real-life situations, through which the ability to solve different scenarios will be exercised, in addition to serving as a self-assessment for learning.

In this way, the student will update or attain knowledge that will enable them to treat these patients and to work in a team through knowledge of issues related to other specialties. It will also enable the student to face the initial assessment and treatment, fundamental moments for the prognosis. In addition, it has the advantage of being a 100% online specialization, so the student can decide from where to study and at what time to do so, and in this way, they can flexibly self-direct their study schedule.

Professional Master's Degree in Major Burn Injuries

Between 80 and 90% of burns are of a domestic nature according to a WHO study in 2009. Although most of these cases usually represent minor injuries that can be treated at home by applying cold water and vaseline free of antibiotics or aloe vera layers, the truth is that there are incidents where the tissue exposed to high temperatures is affected in such a way that an immediate and effective clinical intervention is imperative. The Professional Master's Degree in Major Burns provided by TECH Global University was created as a necessary complement to the medical career that seeks to deepen the diagnosis and treatment of patients with severe burns such as scalds or those resulting from electric shock. Being global leaders in online education, we specialize in providing high quality training with self-regulated classes, teachers with extensive experience in the hospital sector and unique multimedia content that leaves no room for error or demotivation.

Get a medical degree on major burns

Between 17 and 18% of children who suffer burns in low-income areas are left with disabilities, both temporary and permanent, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). In countries such as Spain, close to 120,000 people suffer some type of injury in this category, with the child population being the most affected. On the other hand, in places such as Mexico, a report by the journal Salud Pública indicates that during the COVID-19 quarantine, serious burn accidents increased. This set of data demonstrates how essential it is to train and update physicians on the subject. Through our postgraduate course, you will be able to help rehabilitate patients with deep dermatological sequelae covering topics such as primary care, classification of burn types, surgical management, fluid therapy and even burns in pediatrics. All from comfortable classes free of fixed schedules and with innovative methodological schemes such as the relearning system. What are you waiting for to enroll?
