Accreditation and qualification of cosmetic surgeons and doctors in Tunisia

To become a cosmetic surgeon in Tunisia students must first complete the standard medical studies which lasts seven years. Following this, doctors then specialise in cosmetic surgery which takes a further four years of study. Many Tunisian doctors train for this speciality in France or the USA. Altogether the total study time is 11 years.

Tunisia has a developed healthcare system. All public and private healthcare institutions are very strictly monitored by the Ministry of Health and the medical standards are equivalent to anywhere in Europe. All doctors, including cosmetic surgeons, must belong to the Tunisian Medical Council (Conseil national de l'Ordre des Médecins de Tunisie) and only qualified surgeons who register with the council can perform surgery.

Other professional organisations for membership include the Société Tunisienne de Médecine Esthétique (STME) and the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS).
