The latest trends in health and skin care result in an increased demand for skin repair and rejuvenation services – and skilled practitioners. Patients with clinical skin conditions prefer to receive these services from a trusted, qualified doctor than from a beautician or a cosmetic nurse. Meeting your patients' aesthetic concerns at their local GP's clinic and helping them to regain their healthy appearance and confidence will build long-term loyalty and add non-Medicare based revenue to your practice.
This strictly science-based, not company-funded program is delivered by GPs for GPs. You will receive comprehensive hands-on training in the evolving field of aesthetic medicine and acquire the medical and business skill set required to integrate aesthetic medicine services into your practice.
The Professional Certificate course will help you develop solid foundation knowledge in aesthetic principles and the safe practice of quick, highly requested and low-cost-to-deliver aesthetic treatments for clinical conditions.
In the Advanced Certificate course you will increase your clinical knowledge and competence in aesthetic principles and the safe practice of the latest evidence-based aesthetic medicine procedures.
In the Professional Diploma course you will develop the most advanced clinical knowledge, specialist practical skills and critical awareness of aesthetic medicine principles and treatment options.
This course is for general practitioners only.
