Training Centers

In Belgium, official recognition of the title Doctor in Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery is subject to accreditation by the Minister for Consumer Protection, Public Health and the Environment by virtue of the Ministerial Decrees of 18 July 1979 and of 12 December 2002. To be fully trained, students are currently required to first graduate with a doctorate in medicine recognised in Belgium. They must then complete a minimum of two years of training in a certified general surgery unit and a minimum of four years of training in a certified plastic surgery unit. The training units (training centres) are certified by the Ministry according to qualitative and quantitative criteria described in the above-mentioned Ministerial Decree.
Oversight of specialist training and training centres is handled by French-language and Dutch-language Chambers of the Ministry Certification Committee.
The Collegium Chirurgicum Plasticum , an entity of the Belgian Society for Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery, is responsible for the annual testing of specialist candidates through national examinations.
