What do you learn on the postgraduate programme? 

In the expert hands of Prof. Hamdi and his team you will have access to many years' experience and a broad spectrum of clinical and research activities in the breast surgery field. The programme covers all types of breast reconstruction, from autologous (pedicled flaps, free flaps and perforator flaps) and implant-based breast reconstruction, to oncoplastic breast-conserving approaches to breast cancer, exposing you to various techniques of breast reduction and mastopexy together with implant breast augmentation procedures. Also, the department manages many refer cases for revision breast surgery. Fat grafting for both reconstructive and aesthetic indications is daily practice. Not only that, you will have the chance to join the multidisciplinary approach to lymphedema in the European Center for Lymphatic Surgery. Intended learning outcomes? The organisational area of a department of plastic surgery, multidisciplinary consultation, intervention planning and preparation, plus a practical field with different surgical techniques and decision trees for treatment choice in these domains. An additional scientific component covers the critical evaluation of scientific literature, along with the writing and publishing of a scientific article.
