ABS Breast Specialty Courses Portfolio

The Association of Breast Surgery is now running a series of breast courses having taken over the Breast specialty portfolio from the Royal College of Surgeons of England. 




The Association of Breast Surgery will be running the Advanced Skills in Breast Disease Management Course again in March 2020 at Selwyn College, Cambridge and will again run over 3 days.  Selwyn College provides excellent facilities and reasonably priced accommodation options for delegates staying for the course.  Overall the course represents excellent value for money for those attending.

This state-of-the-art course offers the opportunity to learn about current and advancing technologies in breast diagnostics, multidisciplinary team working, breast cancer pathology, controversies in treatment, medico legal aspects and common problems of benign breast disease. The course is aimed at senior breast trainees (ST6-8), newly appointed Consultants, SAS grade doctors, advanced care practitioners and specialist nurses with a background in either breast or plastic surgery. Delegates will benefit from interactive lectures delivered by leading experts in their field and lively discussions based on real-life scenarios.

The course is mapped to the ISCP syllabus and is excellent preparation for the CCT examination.

 Learning objectives include:

  • Understanding and implementation of a cutting edge approach to disease management  
  • Confidence in decision-making for delivery of exemplary clinical care
  • Critical analysis of current research for management of breast disease
  • Evaluating the efficacy of different assessment methods for breast cancer.

In addition, this course provides opportunity to expand your network of expert colleagues with a common interest in breast disease management. The course has an emphasis on imparting broad evidence-based knowledge and development of decision-making skills that optimize clinical and patient reported outcomes.

Information about the 2020 course will appear here in due course.




Specialty Skills in Breast Surgery (Levels 1 & 2) courses will be held early in 2020 at the Manchester Surgical Skills and Simulation Centre.
