This course is open to those who have previously attended either of the Dalvi Humzah Aesthetic Training courses, namely the Advanced Anatomy or Complications Management Courses.

Each one-day course includes:

  • Access to clinical knowledge modules delivered via the MATA learning community.
  • Face-to-face clinical teaching including mannequin and wet-tissue specimens.
  • Lunch and refreshments.

 

Note: Completion of route 2 will enable learners to apply for Route 1 and enrol for the qualification.

Route 3:

This course is designed for new delegates that have not attended either of the Dalvi Humzah Aesthetic Training courses.  Course content includes:

 

  • Access to clinical knowledge modules delivered via the MATA learning community.

For those considering Routes 1 or 2, you will have covered a significant amount of the underpinning clinical knowledge through your attendance on the Dalvi Humzah Aesthetic Training courses. Therefore you are likely to be well prepared for the written assessment and OSCE station assessment. We will give you a range of assessment dates, so you can choose the days that suit you best and fit around your working life. You may wish to start completing the reflective portfolios prior to attending the assessment days, and we will provide examples of how these constitute meaningful, critical reflection at postgraduate level.

The qualification is open to those holding an appropriate Level 6 qualification, i.e. degree, in a medical or dental related specialist field.  Typically students will be registered doctors, dentists, nurses or prescribing nurses.

To gain the qualification you need to successfully complete written assessment papers OSCEs.  You are also required to complete two reflective portfolios covering your personal practice with critical reflection on the prevention and management of complications arising from cosmetic interventions. Please be advised that some learners find critical and meaningful reflection challenging but guidance and examples will be provided to support you.

Qualifying Award

The knowledge modules are accessible at any time via the MATA self-paced e-learning community.  If you are ready to attend the assessment days you will take examination papers on those days and complete your reflective portfolios post-course.
