Course summary

The number of breast cancer cases in the UK is increasing. Norwich Medical School, with support from the Royal College of Surgeons (England), Association of Breast Surgery (ABS), British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS), developed this unique course for surgeons looking to progress in Oncoplastic Breast Surgery. Following its inception in 2011, UEA’s innovative approach won a gold e-learning award, stimulating development of new super-specialist courses that adopt the same educational formula; the latest of which are offered internationally.

Designed to mesh with the working lives of clinical practitioners, six modules cover benign breast disease, malignant breast disease, oncoplastic breast conservation, oncoplastic breast reconstruction, integrated research, and leadership and management. The focus is on consultant-level critical thinking and decision-making for surgeons as they gain on-the-job experience.


As a Specialist Postgraduate Diploma student at Norwich Medical School, you’ll take part in fully-online discussions centred around realistic cases within our dedicated Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) – a thriving online community of specialists from all over the world.

The course is based around six advanced modules, covering all areas of oncoplastic breast surgery and a host of relevant transferrable skills. Each topic will bring with it new expertise and insights, which will prove directly applicable to your own clinical practice. As such, each tutor-mediated forum discussion will take on a life of its own, fueled by the growth of shared reading, personal experience and tutor guidance.?

The course is designed to complement your day-to-day clinical practice, so each session is delivered asynchronously, meaning that you won’t need to log-on at set times. Your online learning will be supported by formative assessments of your surgical knowledge, critical thinking and decision-making., And you will participate in module training days and workshops (either face-to-face or virtual) with our expert tutors, which are also recorded for student revision purposes on the VLE.?

Demonstrate competency in core oncoplastic breast surgery procedures, and if you have successfully completed the requirements for a PGDiploma, then you would be able to apply to proceed onto the final year to obtain a Master’s degree. If you are unable to fully demonstrate operative competency, you will not move onto the final year and can complete your study with a Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma. In these cases, you will still benefit fully from the theoretical and decision-making skills that each of our students can gain on the course.
