ASAPS FELLOWSHIP PROGRAMS
The ASAPS Fellowship program has been developed to expand on the pre-Fellowship training in aesthetic surgery that is an integral part of Plastic and Reconstructive surgery training. This allows sub-specialisation in an area of interest such as breast surgery, facial surgery, rhinoplasty surgery, body contouring surgery. At the end of the College training we would like to offer our graduates the option to learn and compliment their aesthetic knowledge and skills by doing a fellowship. Fellowships are supported by our industry partners in the form of scholarships to augment the stipend for these fellowships. The following fellowships are currently available, although timing is subject to availability. They are all for 6 months and some are run by individuals and some by a group of surgeons.
Advanced Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Gold Coast, Queensland Australia
This training program has been developed by Breast Academy Gold Coast Pty Ltd.
The Breast Academy at Pacific Private Hospital is a multi-‐disciplinary patient focused clinic providing an affordable Australian alternative to overseas cosmetic surgery tourism. It is based at Pacific Private Hospital, a fully accredited 5-‐theatre facility on Australia’s Gold Coast.
The Academy employs an evidence-based approach to aesthetic surgery and all its surgeons are fully qualified plastic surgeons.
The goal of the Breast Academy Fellowship program is lifelong learning and continued professional development with a focus on breast augmentation and aesthetic breast surgery. Our mentoring program allows Plastic Surgeon wishing to further build on skills gained during SET training (or its international equivalents) to draw on the technical experience of senior surgeons.
The Breast Academy Fellowship program is unique in that it provides an opportunity for “hands-‐on” training by experienced plastic surgery mentors and access to a large number of cases.
