As there isn’t a medical university in Cyprus, dentists and cosmetic surgeons are trained at international schools, usually in the UK or US, and are accredited by international organisations.
After their Degree in Medicine, cosmetic surgeons go on to study cosmetic surgery and specialise in a particular area such as breast augmentation or rhinoplasty. Official organisations in Cyprus include the Cyprus Society of Plastic Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery and the Greek Society of Plastic Surgery. Surgeons may be certified members of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (IPRAS). The medical associations for Trichologists are the International Society of Hair Restoration (ISHRS) which provides continuing education to physicians specialising in hair transplant and restoration surgery, and the European Society of Hair Restoration (ESHRS).
To qualify as a dentist, students complete a further three years of postgraduate study after completing their six year Diploma or Degree in Dentistry and specialise in their chosen field, such as a Paediatric Dentist, Orthodontic Dentist or a Periodontist. The main dental organisations are the Cyprus Dental Council (Tel. 00 357 22 316812), the Cyprus Dental Association (Tel. 00 357 22 316812), the Cyprus Periodontal Society, and the Cyprus Orthodontic Society.
The Cyprus Ministry of Health is the governmental body which inspects, oversees and assesses the clinics and hospitals and the Private Doctor’s Association in Cyprus works in association with the government to inspect and approve all private practices. Doctors are accredited by the Cyprus Medical Association (the CMA).
