There has been 21 graduates between 2011-2017, a survey response was obtained in 16 of them, 100% of the respondents approved the training program, 63% of respondents consider the duration of the program is insufficient. The best-evaluated rotation of the program was HCUCH according to 56% of graduates. The areas of best training perceived were body contour surgery and breast aesthetic surgery, respectively.
