Course content

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

This is an intensive part-time course encompassing the science of skin ageing and aesthetics, the application of evidence-based practice, and 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 working in aesthetic research, regulation and clinical practice. The combination of research and clinical expertise in skin ageing and aesthetic medicine at The University of Manchester and Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust will enable you to learn from 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.

The theoretical component of this course is delivered online. You are also required to attend an induction day at the main University campus in October 2019 and two residential weeks in January 2020 and November 2020 (exact dates to be confirmed).
