This is an award-winning online Specialist Clinical Mastership in Oncoplastic Breast Surgery, Europe's highest qualification lead by the UK's leading Oncoplastic Consultants.

Entry requirements

A MBBS (pass or merit), or equivalent; ST 5 or above, associate specialist (2 years in breast surgery); GMC registered; and MRCS or equivalent. All applicants who are not a British national and/or whose first language is not English will need to demonstrate a suitable level of English language proficiency. This is equivalent to an IELTS 7.0 overall, with a minimum of 7.0 in all components, although we do accept many other types of qualifications or tests. In accordance with the UK Border Agencies Tier 4 visa guidelines, we will also waive the English language requirement for applicants who meet the defined nationality test or who have completed a degree level course in 1 of the listed countries.

Assessment methods

Students engage fully online, in discussions on realistic cases, supported by continual assessments of their surgical knowledge, critical thinking and decision-making. Each tutor-mediated forum discussion takes on a life of its own, fuelled by the growth of shared reading, personal experience and tutor guidance, all contributed at convenient times. In addition to online learning, EU or UK students attend face to face training days with tutors every 16 weeks. All training days are recorded and made available to our international students online.
