Two years part-time – Distance Learning
The Centre for Cutaneous Research (CCR) has an reputation for teaching and research in
dermatology. The CCR was the first to use laboratory grown skin to treat burns and chronic wounds in the UK in the early 1980’s. This has led to the establishment of research fellowships for many young plastic surgeons and their success in acquiring higher degrees, as well as providing tissue engineered products for patients around London. As a result of this the CCR now has established an academic group of plastic surgeons, who have led
the development of a novel postgraduate diploma of the University of London for Aesthetic Surgery.Course leads: Professor David Smith, Simon Myers PhD FRCS (Hon Senior lecturer), Jim Frame FRCS, Professor H Navsaria PhD Contributors:UK plastic and aesthetic surgeons.
The programme leads to a postgraduate Diploma of the University of London: PGDipAesRecSurg.
