Nine British College of Aesthetic Medicine (BCAM) members have passed the newly introduced MBCAM examination.
Passing the MBCAM examination allows them to progress to full membership in the College. The Masters-level exam is the culmination of more than two years’ of training, led by consultant plastic and aesthetic surgeon Mr Dalvi Humzah.
The examination has been introduced as a progression pathway to gain full member status, ensuring members maintain the highest levels of clinical excellence and have broad knowledge across the aesthetic spectrum, explains BCAM. The membership allows members to promote their clinics in the clinician search area of the BCAM website, as well as sitting on the BCAM board after six months and voting at the Annual General Meeting.
The first sitting of the multi-choice paper was held virtually on September 28 with online proctoring. An Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) will be added in 2022 when all other existing routes to full member status will be phased out. The OSCE was postponed this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The current list of full members includes Dr Matin Ahmadi, Dr Arturo Almeida, Dr Sally Antcliff, Dr T Abas Awan, Dr Manav Bawa, Dr Giuseppe Fiore, Dr Claudia Morley, Dr Ivona Paravic and Dr Omer Riaz.
Mr Humzah said, “BCAM is invested in ensuring its members remain at the forefront of evidence-based aesthetic medicine. Their expertise means the highest standards are delivered and that patient safety is the central focus of the treatments delivered.”
BCAM president Dr
Uliana Gout commented, “This is a significant milestone and couldn’t come at a
better time as BCAM celebrates its 20th anniversary. We are
determined to further our mission of leading the aesthetic medicine area,
supporting our members and working with stakeholders to promote safety and
