As a medical practitioner, you’ve no doubt expended a great deal of thought as to exactly what specialty you wished to pursue. The years of education that go into becoming a physician are not something that anyone undertakes lightly, but when that initial education is completed, the process of being a practicing medical professional has only just begun.
Practicing medicine, in whatever form you might choose, is a continual, lifelong pursuit of continuing education and development of the skills and knowledge required to excel and best serve those who entrust you with their care.
For those who are practicing, or who may be considering a move into aesthetic medicine, here are 6 courses from AAAMS that can help move you closer to a successful aesthetics career.
The Facial Aesthetics Master Program is a comprehensive series of online training programs designed to provide AAAMS members with a robust foundation for understanding facial aesthetics. Dr. Sam Assassa draws on his more than 20 years of aesthetic medicine and surgery expertise to share his extensive knowledge through more than 15 hours of training video content to cover these essential facial aesthetics topics.
This is a two-day comprehensive course, conducted by experienced physician instructors. In keeping with the hybrid model, Day 1 is a live, virtual, didactic session hosted on Zoom. Attendees will experience lectures, videos, breakout sessions, a Q&A session, and pop quizzes. Day 2 is an in-person, hands-on training session on facial aesthetics at AAAMS’s headquarters in Beverly Hills. During this session, students get the opportunity to practice their injection skills on mannequins and live patients, with guidance from an expert.
At the end of the course, students leave fully certified to conduct aesthetics injections, including certification for Botulinum Toxin (Botox) and dermal fillers.
The Facial Mannequin Training Program is a new step-by-step online program by Dr. Sam Assassa with over 3 hours of video training lectures that will guide you and help you develop your facial aesthetics injection technique.
In this online program, Dr. Sam Assassa will personally show you how to inject area by area for both botulinum toxins and dermal fillers. In addition, you will learn how to use your facial mannequin during the patient consultation process to help you develop your patient’s treatment plan.
