Register Your Interest in Applying for Cosmetic Surgery Certification
A clear set of cosmetic surgery standards is required to instil confidence in a prospective patient that their surgeon has the appropriate training, qualifications and experience to perform their chosen procedure.
Through the Cosmetic Surgery Interspecialty Committee (CSIC) we have developed a certification system that allows surgeons to demonstrate high professional and clinical standards. Patients and employers will be able to search for a certified surgeon on the RCS's website. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) will take account of our standards when inspecting and rating services. This new system of certification will make the cosmetic surgery industry safer for patients and enhance the reputation of the profession.
To apply for certification you must be on the GMC's specialist register in a relevant specialty.
Registering your interest does not form part of the application process.
