3 Week Extensive Program

The Advanced Medical Aesthetic Provider (AMAP) Apprenticeship Program is offered at our Beverly Hills office, and select locations around the country. This 3-week intensive course provides comprehensive, direct instruction to help providers develop and master their clinical skill set. Upon completion of the course, attendees will be trained to an advanced degree of competency, which will allow them to return home as a revenue-generating provider to your practice and immediately begin to treat patients safely and effectively, with great outcomes.

Weeks 1 & 2

Providers will receive two weeks (80 hours) of in-person and hands-on training in a clinical setting. During this time the providers will have direct instruction and supervision with Institute instructors, while learning to safely and effectively complete an array of injectables (both neuromodulators and dermal fillers), threads and medical skin treatments. Attendees will receive months worth of hands-on experience in just two weeks of intensive training.

Week 3

The third week of this program is completed at their home office by treating training (paying) patients under the remote supervision of Institute instructors. Instructors will be available for assessment, consultation, and complication management (as needed, and in coordination with the practice’s medical director).

In addition to the technical and clinical skills, the AMAP Apprenticeship instruction will include consultation coaching, KPI (Key Performance Indicator) expectations, as well as patient & team culture development.
