19 Jan Australia now has a recognised training pathway in Cosmetic Medicine for doctors
The Cosmetic Physicians College of Australasia (CPCA) is proud to announce the launch of the 52900WA Graduate Certificate of Cosmetic Medicine.
This marks a significant milestone in the training of doctors wanting to learn how to perform cosmetic procedures in Australia. It is the first course to be developed in Australia and is the only course of its kind, that is accredited by the Training Accreditation Council (TAC) as having demonstrated compliance with the requirements of the AQTF2021 Standards for Accredited Courses. The education will be provided by Niche Education Group, a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) on behalf of the CPCA. Niche Education Group is the ideal RTO to run the course as they have an established history providing education in this field and will provide true ‘arm’s length’ assessment of the students.
The Graduate Certificate of Cosmetic Medicine forms the cornerstone of the CPCA Registrars Training Program (RTP). The first intake of registrars is expected to be in early 2023, spans four units and is expected to take 6-12 months to complete. Completion of the Graduate Certificate of Cosmetic Medicine will be the educational pathway for CPCA members wishing to progress to Fellowship and marks the first stage in the development of a recognised, independent training program in cosmetic medicine. It will provide an excellent grounding in patient assessment and cosmetic injectables and will be followed by a graduate diploma that will cover energy-based devices including, but not limited to, lasers, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), Radiofrequency (RF) and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU).
