Course content

The online Postgraduate Diploma in Cosmetic Medicine, run in partnership with Diploma MSc, is aimed at doctors, dentists and nurses who require a postgraduate qualification to support their professional learning and clinical development to become an aesthetic practitioner.

Increased regulatory requirements for those performing aesthetic procedures, both from Health Education England and regulatory authorities such as the GDC, GMC and NMC, mean that a formal postgraduate qualification is now an essential element of a healthcare practitioner's journey to become an aesthetic practitioner. Taught completely online, the Postgraduate Diploma in Cosmetic Medicine has been developed with the express purpose of promoting and enhancing the professional knowledge underpinning practice in cosmetic medicine. Graduates have the option to progress to the Masters in Cosmetic Medicine.
