This 16 week module will provide participants with comprehensive knowledge in all aspects of breast reduction surgery in female patients, including initial patient assessment, choice of surgical approach, essential elements of informed consent, management of post-operative complications including medico-legal issues.

Clinical case discussions will cover auto-augmentation, augmentation mastopexy and massive weight loss surgery. Topics will be discussed in depth on-line, analysing the most up-to-date evidence and identifying models of best practice.

Participants will develop their decision-making and critical thinking skills and can compare their learning to expert opinions in the field.
