Southport

Breast Academy Gold Coast is offering Plastic and Reconstructive Surgical Fellow positions in 2019 and 2020, of periods between 6 and 12 months.

The paid fellowship program based at Pacific Private Hospital Southport, is supervised by Dr Craig Layt and Dr Luke Stradwick and offers added exposure to their private practices, other reputable surgeons plus VMO opportunities at Gold Coast University Hospital. This allows for education in not only the technical but also the business side of running an aesthetic practice.

The principles of Breast Academy are to advocate for aesthetic breast surgery to be performed by well-trained and qualified plastic surgeons in Australia with appropriate follow-up care. Those surgeons completing the Breast Academy Fellowship program will be equipped with the skills to take a leadership role in defining the standard of care expected of those surgeons choosing to perform aesthetic breast surgery.

All program applicants must have successfully completed FRACS (plastics) or its equivalent.

Dr Layt (0418 210 020) and Dr Stradwick (0423 506 792) are available to discuss any aspects of the program with interested surgeons.
