The Aesthetic Anti-Aging Fellowship


The Aesthetic Anti-Aging Fellowship was created to establish best practice standards and clinical excellence in Aesthetic Medicine. The Fellowship provides a post-graduate venue for the development of both expert knowledge and procedural skills in aesthetic procedures: setting our Fellows apart in their abilities to offer best clinical outcomes to their respective patients.

The Aesthetic Anti-Aging Fellowship is issued to individuals with MD, DO, MBBS, PA, and NP degrees.

What is Aesthetic Medicine?

Aesthetic Medicine is a developing clinical subspecialty, primarily based upon the use of minimally invasive cosmetic treatments to enhance patient satisfaction with physical appearance. This subspecialty is no longer exclusively limited to the fields of plastic surgery and dermatology, as many specialties are increasingly offering aesthetic medical procedures in order to better accommodate their patients’ needs.

What You Will Learn

The Fellowship is a seven-module series in the United States (six-module series internationally). The series consists of a three-module didactic lecture series, in addition to a four-module hands-on clinical training series. All courses are CME-accredited.

Didactic Modules: The Aesthetic Fellowship offers attendees expert clinical knowledge throughout Modules I-III, via in-depth study materials, lectures from renowned thought leaders in the field, interactive videos, expert live demonstrations, and continued access to aesthetic clinicians. Consistent updates surrounding new technologies are provided at annual live events, and through webinars offered throughout the year. This portion enables attendees to be verified experts in the subspecialty, while preparing them to develop state-of-the-art treatment plans for educated consumers, and ultimately to be familiar with all aspects of Aesthetic Medicine.

Clinical Modules: The Aesthetic Fellowship offers superior procedural training in Modules IV-VII through unparalleled hands-on experience: delivered via live modules and expert physician trainers, and designed to allow attendees to achieve true procedural competence. This includes patient selection, patient education, treatment planning, procedural forms and protocols, and pre/post procedure care. Attendees leave the clinical training with the skill and knowledge to offer patients superior clinical outcomes.
