Take your career to the next level with a Masters in Aesthetic Medicine from Queen Mary. Designed to significantly advance your clinical practice, this programme delivers high-calibre theoretical training in sought-after procedures such as botulinum toxin injections, dermal fillers and laser treatment.
This programme specifically focuses on complementing your existing practical skills with knowledge on key issues in the aesthetic medicine profession, as well as evaluation and self-appraisal, and autonomy in the planning and management of learning. As such, the information covered is designed for you to develop an improved theoretical understanding of procedures, patient management, and key issues, rather than explicit practical training in aesthetic medicine techniques.
You will gain a thorough training in aesthetic medicine, with a particular focus on non-operative techniques. You will critically discuss the challenges associated with assessing risk in patients. At the end of your studies, you will have a detailed knowledge of the application of consent and ethical practice in aesthetic medicine, and of key laser and injectables techniques. You will also gain insight into the regulatory environment.
We have a large number of specialists teaching on the course, and many are world leaders in their fields. These include academics from other institutions, clinicians, and specialists from the medical industry.
Through interactive webinars and online lectures, videos and literature, you will gain confidence in a number of skills including evaluation and self-appraisal, and autonomy in the planning and management of learning. You also have the chance to put your learning to the test via optional simulation training.
After completeing the Aesthetic Medicine programme, you will have developed comprehensive knowledge of the field along with valuable skills for improved learning and critical appraisal.
