Taught completely online, our Cosmetic Medicine courses have been developed with the express purpose of promoting and enhancing the professional knowledge underpinning practice in cosmetic medicine. The courses are designed to complement practice based Recognise Prior Learning (RPL) awards, which are being developed for cosmetic medicine practitioners.

With Health Education England (HEE) adopting increasing regulatory requirements for aesthetic practice, individuals undertaking aesthetic procedures should have a formal postgraduate qualification. Therefore, these qualifications from our Cosmetic Medicine courses would be an important milestone in the healthcare practitioner's journey to be an aesthetic practitioner. Such qualifications are also regarded as integral by the individuals' regulatory authorities, such as the GDC, GMC and NMC.

The Postgraduate Diploma and MSc course is aimed at doctors, dentists and nurses with independent prescriber status. These roles are evolving with increasing demand amongst these specialists for a postgraduate qualification to help support their professional learning and clinical development.

Students may apply for the MSc in Cosmetic Medicine as a two year course, firstly by completing the Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits), followed by the MSc (60 credits).

Postgraduate Diploma in Cosmetic Medicine

The Diploma in Cosmetic Medicine course has been specifically designed to promote and enhance working professional’s knowledge underpinning practice in cosmetic medicine. It is designed to complement separate practice based recognised prior learning (RPL) awards that are being developed for cosmetic medicine practitioners.

The aims and aspired outcomes of the course upon completion are to:

  • Develop analytical and critical appraisal skills in both theory and research related to cosmetic medicine.
  • Demonstrate critical application of research to cosmetic medicine practice.
  • Professional decision making: incorporating evidence based rationale in a variety of diverse and complex situations related to cosmetic medicine.
  • To be able to apply advanced problem-solving skills in clinical practice.
  • Demonstrate leadership in the delivery and advancement of cosmetic medicine.
  • Demonstrate leadership of teams in multi-agency, multi-cultural and/or international contexts.
  • Demonstrate evaluation skills in the delivery of care to patients.

Applicants would typically be doctors, dentists or nurses with independent prescriber status.

These roles are evolving with increasing demand amongst these specialists for a postgraduate qualification to help support their professional learning and clinical development.

Course Structure

The online Cosmetic Medicine Diploma lasts one calendar year and is a part-time distance learning course. It consists of 6 modules per year, each of 6 weeks’ duration.

Module 1 - Anatomy, Physiology and Professional Issues Overview

Module 2 - Facial Muscle Treatment

Module 3 - Facial Fat Pads

Module 4 - Skin

Module 5 - Hair

Module 6 - Other Aesthetic Approaches

Assessment

The course puts assessment at the heart of learning by using clinical scenarios to facilitate problem-solving, critical analysis and evidence-based care. The scenarios act as both the focus for learning and assessment thus embedding assessment within the learning process.

Each of the 6 modules has the same assessment format. Due to the online nature of the course, students are expected to login and participate in the course regularly throughout the module (ideally on a daily basis).

Students use the skills gained during the lectures to engage with the different activities (see below).

Clinical case scenarios with case based discussion - 40%

Individual learning portfolio - 10%

Group/individual activity - 20%

Case based examination - 30%

Teaching Methods

Each module has the same format. Using an online platform and one tutor per 10-15 students, the self-directed distance learning is guided by tutor stimulated discussion based on clinically rich case scenarios. Group projects are undertaken alongside independent projects. Reflective practice is recorded in a reflective portfolio to help students consider how the learning can be translated into everyday work and practice.

Teaching starts with 1 day of introductory lectures. Students may attend these lectures in the UK (Glyntaff campus, University of South Wales)

The lecture series are delivered by the faculty and tutors, they are a pre-course organiser, giving students the tools required to undertake the online course such as:

  • Scientific writing
  • Levels of evidence
  • Harvard referencing
  • Reflective writing

The lectures series give an opportunity to meet face to face with tutors/other students prior to the online course.

Students are not required to attend the lectures however those who attend do benefit as they get a "jump start" to the course. Students who are not able to attend, should request a skype/telephone call to orientate them onto the course and are advised to review the lecture slides.

MSc in Cosmetic Medicine

The Cosmetic Medicine MSc has been specifically designed to promote and enhance working professional’s knowledge underpinning practice in cosmetic medicine. It is designed to complement separate practice based recognised prior learning (RPL) awards that are being developed for cosmetic medicine practitioners.

Our MSc in Skin Ageing and Aesthetic Medicine is specifically designed for qualified medical or dental practitioners who wish to develop their knowledge in the field of cosmetic medicine.

This course seeks to develop future leaders in aesthetic practice by offering a high quality programme at an internationally recognised institution.

This MSc is an intensive part-time postgraduate taught programme encompassing the science of skin ageing and aesthetics, the application of evidence-based practice, the clinical assessment and management of patients presenting with aesthetic problems.
You will be encouraged to develop a translational, professional approach to learning throughout the course, which can be applied to your future learning.

In addition, supervision and training is provided by national and international leaders in the field of aesthetic research, regulation and clinical practice.

The unique amalgamation of research and clinical expertise in Skin Ageing and Aesthetic Medicine at The University of Manchester and Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust allows us to develop a unique programme supported by an interdisciplinary faculty of dermatologists, plastic surgeons, oculoplastic surgeons, maxillo-facial surgeons, dentists and psychologists in addition to skin ageing and wound research basic scientists.

Aims

The aim of the programme is to develop professionals with the ability to apply scientific principles and the latest evidence base to the practice of skin ageing and aesthetic medicine. You will develop clinical knowledge, specialist practical skills and critical awareness of non-surgical procedures supported by leading experts in the field.

Special features

We offer specific patient-centred teaching underpinned by evidence-based theory to ensure students understand the relationship between practical and theoretical aspects of aesthetic practice.

Each student will be provided with one-to-one tutor support throughout the programme with small group sessions and bedside training with volunteer models during the clinical sessions.

The programme has been recognised as a gold standard for education in aesthetic practice by the UK Higher Education governing body: Higher Education England. It aligns directly with the outcomes of the UK Department of Health review on cosmetic practice and General Medical Council guidance in this area.

As a Russell Group university, Manchester is a centre for world-class research, outstanding learning and student experience and social responsibility. The University of Manchester Dermatological Research Sciences group sits within the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health and is led by Professor Chris Griffiths. The centre is recognised as global leader in basic science, translational and clinical research in skin health and disease.

The programme is run in collaboration with The Dermatology Centre at Salford Royal Foundation Trust, one of the largest clinical dermatology units in the UK.

As a University of Manchester master's-level degree programme, this course will offer content and assignments meeting rigorous criteria to support development expected of aesthetic practice leaders of the future.

Teaching and learning

The programme structure has been designed using established educational theory and practices to enhance student experience and learning.

The University of Manchester virtual learning environment (Blackboard) guides participants through module content, assessment submission and programme information.

Modules utilise blended teaching methods aligned with learning outcomes and assessment. The course contains e- learning case work, small group work, interactive forums, clinical debriefs, and practical sessions with volunteer models. Students are taught in small ratios (1:5) to maximise opportunities for clinical learning.

We hold two face-to-face 6-day residential sessions during the first 24 months of programme, one in each of the two first years. Both of these will be scheduled in the second semester and dates should be circulated in September. Attendance in at the residential sessions is compulsory for all students.

An initial Induction Day is held in Manchester at the start of the first academic year to familiarise participants with the on-line e-learning software and library resources. Attendance at the Induction Day is also compulsory for all students.

Coursework and assessment

You will be required to pass group and written assignments for each module. Those with a highly practical element will also include assessments of procedural skills.

Career opportunities

With the gap in training highlighted by the UK government review of cosmetic practice, it is likely all aesthetic practitioners in the UK will need to provide evidence of their credentials.

This programme does not provide a professional competence framework, but goes beyond this to offer integrated knowledge and the application of critical skills enveloped within high quality professional behaviours.

Those who complete this programme will be forerunners in acquisition of a comprehensive knowledge base which can be applied to their future or current clinical practice.

Students from the UK and abroad will benefit substantially from the opportunity to complete a programme from one of the world-leading institutions in skin health and research.

The master's element of the course will be assessed through a written dissertation (12,000 words).

Overview

This advanced course is designed for qualified Plastic Surgeons who want to develop their medical knowledge, clinical competence and patient skills within the Cosmetic and Aesthetic fields. Our accredited course will develop the clinical knowledge and skills you’ll need to practice safe, efficacious ethical surgery. By the time you graduate you’ll have a thorough grasp of the key surgical techniques and the ability to apply them appropriately, in line with clinical needs, ethical considerations and patients’ wishes. The course will also train you to critically evaluate emerging research and to incorporate it into your practice, and to lead clinical, technical and service developments.

Our course combines a significant practice component with research studies and a major dissertation. You’ll be assessed on the below elements by:
1) 2 vivas examining the case studies presented and reports you submit from the course’s practice component
2) your portfolio containing a further 30 case studies, which must cover the 14 compulsory procedures
3) your log book detailing the cases you’ve undertaken
4 ) An essay of 6,000 words exploring professional decision making
Your Major Project, which is a 15,000- word report or research paper including critical discussions and reflections on how your findings apply to practice.

The Plastic Surgeons under instruction will observe, assist, be assisted and then operate independently but under the supervision of an experienced University appointed preceptor. They’ll care for their own private patients some of whom will be referred from their preceptor Surgeon. The Preceptor Surgeons are also members of the British Association of Plastic Reconstructive Aesthetic Surgeons.

This course will equip you to develop your career in private practice as a specialist aesthetic and cosmetic plastic surgeon. For six months during the course you’ll receive one-to-one supervision from a qualified consultant aesthetic plastic surgeon who is a registered member of UKAAPS.
