  • Cymhwyster: MSc/PGDip/PGCert

The MSc in Non-surgical Aesthetic Medicine prepares U.K. registered doctors, nurses, dentists and pharmacists to deliver safe, person-centred non-surgical aesthetic practice.

Year one reflects the new and innovative evidence-based practice standards, developed by experts in response to the Review of the Regulations of Cosmetic Interventionsby the Department of Health (2013), and the Health Education England (2014) Qualification Requirements for Delivery of Cosmetic Procedures.  

In year one, registered health professionals will be prepared to undertake clinical, autonomous roles as non-surgical aesthetic practitioners. The programme will develop the professional’s knowledge regarding facial anatomy and ageing and will ensure the practitioner develops the competence to deliver person-centred non-surgical aesthetic practice, with the use of botulinum toxin and non-permanent dermal fillers.

Year two provides an introduction to research methods, preparing practitioners for the MSc dissertation module in year three. Practitioners can also select from a range of additional modules, including non-medical prescribing, advanced non-surgical aesthetic practice or legal and ethical concepts, which are designed to optimise the competence and knowledge of the specialist practitioner.

The final year offers practitioners an opportunity to complete a contemporary piece of research or scholarly enquiry, related to non-surgical aesthetic medicine. Successful completion of the dissertation module will lead to the award of MSc in Non-surgical Aesthetic Medicine.

A career in private non-surgical aesthetic medicine can provide practitioners with autonomous and independent careers and can also lead to roles within a private clinic or hospital settings, such as those hospitals who provide non-surgical aesthetic procedures. Furthermore, with the anticipated growing numbers of practitioners entering into non-surgical aesthetic medicine, opportunities including teaching, mentorship or strategic industry involvement are ever more likely.
