We are committed to providing opportunities for clinical colleagues wishing to develop their knowledge and experience in the area of plastic surgery. As a result, Barts and The London Plastic Surgery Department is developing an MSc in Plastic Surgery.
In addition, the Centre for Cutaneous Research (CCR) has developed postgraduate diplomas in clinical dermatology and aesthetic surgery.
The PGDipAesSurg course
The diploma course leads to a postgraduate degree of the University of London: PGDipAesSurg.
It is a two year part-time course and a web-based distance learning programme. The maximum intake for the course in the first year is 12 part time students.
The course is designed specifically to provide a core curriculum for established surgeons or surgical trainees, who wish to practice in the field of aesthetic surgery following completion of specialist training. The course starts in October and runs for two academic years.
Clinical DVDs cover some practical issues in demonstration/lecture format with clinical patient scenarios and clinical training days will be provided for up to four days with video links. Candidates are also expected to gain additional experience by attending surgical centres locally.
