About The BCCA

The Importance of Certification in Clinical Anaplastology 

Obtaining the CCA designation is formal recognition for entry level anaplastologist professionals who have met the rigorous and demanding eligibility requirements; including formal education, subsequent supervised practice in a clinical setting, and passing of the examination.

CCA demonstrates healthcare-specific competency and a commitment to consumer safety by anaplastology allied health professionals who provide patients with customized prosthetic rehabilitation. The prostheses are designed and fabricated to normalize the appearance of the face or body impacted by congenital malformation, traumatic injury, disease or ablative surgery.

Professionals who earn the CCA designation have demonstrated they possess the clinical skills and the knowledge to design and fabricate life-like and functional facial prostheses as well as various external soft tissue somatic prostheses and also ocular prostheses.

Anaplastologists with the CCA designation are typically employed in medical practice settings such as university hospital settings, dental clinics  and prosthetics specialty practices.
