Course content

Taught completely online, the Postgraduate Certificate has been specifically designed for doctors, dentists, dental therapists, pharmacists and nurses, and has been developed with the purpose of promoting and enhancing the professional knowledge underpinning practice in cosmetic medicine.

Increased regulatory requirements for those performing aesthetic procedures means this qualification 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.

This online course is run with the collaborative partner Diploma MSc. On successful completion you will become a leader in your field, and can go on to study the Postgraduate Diploma and MSc in Cosmetic Medicine.
