Courses

Our 3-day courses are accredited with the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP: www.bipp.com). Students who pass the assessment on Day 3 will be eligible to apply for licentiate membership of BIPP which awards the “LBIPP” post-nominal.

Each course is conducted by experienced photographers and doctors. The courses attract 18 CPD points via the Faculty of Forensic and Legal Medicine (FFLM) in London (www.fflm.ac.uk) and are approximately 50% theory and 50% practical. We cover ethical and legal issues such as consent, confidentiality, data protection and GMC guidelines.

All equipment is provided. We use Nikon D3400 SLR cameras with the settings in “manual”.  Make-up artists reproduce injuries such as erythema, bruises, scars and abrasions by using fake blood, skin wax and make-up: we practise on each other for this!

There is a maximum of 12 students per course with much of the practical work involving pairing-up to help with learning. If you require a bespoke training course at a specific venue and date, or you need advice/ consultancy on establishing a medical photography service, we will be happy to discuss this: please contact us at info@patientfocused.co.uk for further details.

NB: Special offer of £450 per course from 1st March 2018.
