Date: 1 September 2020

Location name: ONLINE COURSE

A new fully online, part-time Postgraduate Certificate in Skin Ageing and Aesthetic Medicine at the University of Manchester will be launched September 2020 and provides an ideal opportunity to develop knowledge of skin ageing and the evidence base behind aesthetic treatments and safe practice.

The PG Cert in Skin Ageing and Aesthetic Medicine is aimed at dentists, doctors and independent nurse practitioners and is designed to be flexible to fit around the working life of a practitioner. You can choose to undertake single Continued Professional Development (CPD) units one at a time, or complete all four to receive a Postgraduate Certificate.

You will be taught by the clinical and academic programme team; an interdisciplinary faculty of national and international leaders in aesthetic research, regulation and clinical practice from The University of Manchester and Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust.

Our course units in Skin Ageing and Aesthetic Medicine are specifically designed to support the professional development of qualified medical or dental practitioners. While continuing to practice, you will advance your scientific and clinical knowledge in non-surgical treatments for skin ageing.

You will develop working knowledge of frameworks for safe and competent practice, in addition to being able to take an evidence-based approach to anti-ageing strategies in aesthetic medicine.

Online doesn’t mean you’ll be studying alone. You’ll have great opportunities to interact and collaborate with peers and academics through our highly interactive teaching model involving group work, sessions with your tutor and informal support group chats, in addition to a comprehensive virtual learning environment.

Course Units:

Fundamentals of Skin Ageing

Skin Rejuvenation

Injectables in Aesthetic Medicine

Lasers in Aesthetic Medicine

The content aligns directly with the outcomes of the UK Department of Health review on cosmetic practice and General Medical Council guidance in this area.

Places are available to join the course in September 2020.
