Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery Practice (MCh (Masters of Surgery))

Course Description

This advanced course is designed for qualified plastic surgeons who want to develop their medical knowledge, clinical competence and patient skills in the cosmetic and aesthetic fields.

See the website http://www.anglia.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/plastic-and-aesthetic-surgery-practice

Our accredited course will develop the clinical knowledge and skills you’ll need to practice safe, efficacious ethical surgery.

You'll be trained by experienced aesthetic plastic surgeons, on a programme that blends education with research projects and evidence-based practice under expert supervision.

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.

We have excellent distance learning facilities, including our Virtual Learning Environment to access course material and manage your studies. You'll also receive expert one-to-one tuition and support.

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. During this time you’ll observe them at work and carry out procedures under their expert supervision. This will provide the basis for much of your written work on the course.

Our course is accredited by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons.
