AAAM’s Board Certification teaching program is open to licensed physicians, regardless of specialty, who are interested in the science of Aesthetic Medicine, and in expanding their practice in that area. Our unique program offers:
Objective and non-commercial content
AAAM’s Board Certification courses are the only 100% non-commercial and comprehensive scientific programs allowing faculty to be objective and to share their knowledge and skills with the course participants, without industry bias. This is essential in ensuring high quality scientific program content.
Unlike other similar courses, AAAM faculty is expert in their respective fields. Experienced dermatologists teach dermatology; we do not have physicians from other specialties claiming to be a “specialist in Aesthetic Medicine”, if they do not possess background or credentials in that field.
Continuing Medical Education (CME)
AAAM provides CME through its courses and congresses. AAAM’s CME activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the Joint Sponsorship of the Institute for Medical Studies (IMS) and American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine. IMS is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
AAAM’s courses provide AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, and for Physicians of Osteopathic Medicine, the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) accepts AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ as AOA Category 2-B credit.
Our faculty is very interactive with the participants, allowing ample time for questions and answers and taking a "hands on" approach to helping the participants during the workshop sessions. AAAM focuses on teaching safe techniques that can be performed in your medical office.
AAAM’s Board Certification courses are the only ones recognized in the US, Asia, and the Mid-East by the UIME (International Association of Aesthetic Medicine // Union Internationale de Médecine Esthétique). The UIME was created over 30 years ago in response to the blooming of a new specialty within the medical world: aesthetic medicine. The UIME currently has 29 member organizations and 20,000 members on its roster, including the AAAM.
