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.

Professional Diploma Pathway
Certified Clinical Attachments Pathway
Clinical Attachments are optional and available on a 1:1 basis. These provide the opportunity to observe Aesthetic Medicine and ask questions of the expert performing the procedures. HealthCert certificates are awarded for participating in clinical attachments. Many doctors find this a very valuable learning experience. Australian Clinical Attachments take place in a dedicated Aesthetic Medicine clinic in Melbourne and we are currently in discussion with Aesthetic Medicine clinics in Naples, Italy.
Postgraduate Pathway to Master Degree
This pathway is suitable for doctors who are mainly interested in the academic study.
Masters of Skin Ageing and Aesthetic Medicine at the University of Manchester
Doctors who successfully complete any of the HealthCert courses in Aesthetics Medicine, in addition to any other skin-related professional qualifications at HealthCert, will be eligible to apply for Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL is the same as RPL) for the unit “Fundamentals of Skin Ageing” (MEDN67501) which is part of the Masters of Skin Ageing and Aesthetic Medicine at the University of Manchester.
View the University of Manchester program here.
If your application is successful, you will only need to complete one practical assessment for the unit during a short practicum in the UK and no fees will apply for the unit " Fundamentals of Skin Ageing" (MEDN67501).
Please note that APEL (like RPL) is not automatic. This is a highly competitive "Gold Standard" program with only 20 places available each year. Each applicant is assessed individually, depending on the background qualifications and experience of the person applying to ensure the standards are kept very high. Doctors who complete the HealthCert courses have a better chance of being one of the 20 accepted because the Manchester University Academic Committee has reviewed and recognised the HealthCert course content.
Pathway to Professional Association
Experienced doctors who have completed HealthCert Aesthetic Medicine courses may apply to join the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. The academy has 26,000 physician and scientist members in more than 120 countries. HealthCert partners with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine for medical training in the USA.
