    PhD Programs in Exploratory Surgery

    Medical students often learn how to perform exploratory surgery procedures, such as laparotomy and laparoscopy, to determine the nature of a health issue. This type of surgery is typically done when other diagnostic tests have come up negative.

    A PhD, or Doctorate of Philosophy, is the highest degree awarded in many academic fields. Generally requiring a research project and dissertation, as well as several years of study, a doctorate degree qualifies the holder as an expert in a chosen field.
