Essex University is launching a new degree for surgeons, aiming to improve the safety of cosmetic procedures.
The university hopes that the qualification will reduce the ‘have a go’ surgeons as well as prevent people travelling abroad for surgery.
However, plastic surgeons have labelled the new MSc course as unnecessary as all UK qualified plastic surgeons complete Royal College of Surgeons approved training to work in the NHS.
In response, the university is claiming that the new degree will help those who struggle to find NHS work and find themselves looking to private clinics where they lack experience yet are able to operate.
