Think of it as 'concierge' laser training at your door.
Miami, Florida (PRWEB) February 12, 2008
The Institute for Aesthetic Medicine (IAM) announced today the creation of a nationwide laser-training physician and nurse network for physicians and staffs with aesthetic practices. Aesthetic laser practitioners unable to attend one of IAM's clinical, hands-on certification classes can now have personalized clinical training in a single visit.
"The physician and nurse networks are unique as they bring office-side laser training to busy aesthetic laser practitioners," said Amy Pope, director of the IAM Nurse Network. "Think of it as 'concierge' laser training at your door."
The CME-based classes are designed for users of all skill levels--both physician and staff, new or veteran. The instruction takes the attendee from basic concepts of light and clinical application through a clear path to the most current thinking on how, why, and when aesthetic procedures are performed. Participants now have a single laser training resource dedicated to improving patient safety and minimizing professional liability.
"Receiving aesthetic hands-on laser training in a hotel setting is not conducive to a real-world environment and potentially risky," said Michael Gold, M.D., chief medical officer and co-founder of The Institute for Aesthetic Medicine. "Only training in a well-defined clinical setting can deliver the most professional, efficacious skills."
Certification classes will be held in Charlotte, NC, Feb 23-24 (Sciton-sponsored); Maui, HI, Feb 26-28 (George M. Martin, M.D. - IAM Physician Network Office), and Baltimore, MD, Mar 1-2. Participants receive up to 24 CME contact hours depending on course selection. For some training venues, IAM offers a third day of training and certification for Medical Laser Safety Officers (MLSOs). Personalized, in-office physician and nurse network training is arranged by directly contacting IAM.
