Medical practices can thrive by adding non-insurance based services to their practices, such as botox, dermal fillers, anti-aging treatments (chemical peels/ microdermabrasion), lasers for hair removal/tattoo removal & non-invasive body sculpting, and medically supervised weight management. To educate physicians on how to profitably add these procedures to their practices, the IAPAM has spaces remaining at its next Aesthetic Medicine Symposium: May 17-18 in Scottsdale, AZ.
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (April 12, 2014) -- There has been much talk in the physician community regarding Obamacare: the Affordable Care Act or the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). Many physicians are concerned about how this new program will impact the health of their patients and the health of their medical practices.
However, there is evidence that by adding minimally-invasive treatments, such as: botox, dermal fillers, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, body contouring technologies (e.g. skin tightening, fat reduction), lasers for skin rejuvenation/tattoo removal/hair removal, and medically supervised weight management programs (e.g. the hCG Diet), the income of a practice will increase, since payments for these treatments are made directly and immediately to the clinic.
Therefore, to provide physicians seeking both clinical and business training in adding these aesthetic modalities, the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine ( IAPAM ) designed its Aesthetic Medicine Symposium to give physicians ALL the information, physician resources, patient materials, practice tools (e.g. editable consent forms, etc.), clinical DVDs, and industry-leading didactic and hands-on training, that they need to begin offering aesthetics when they finish the conference.
The IAPAM is the only complete education program that offers:
• An Accelerated program: physicians and their staff can be certified over a weekend;
• Clinical training DVDs to take back to one's practice;
• Board Certified Dermatologists as instructors;
• Internationally Recognized Certification;
• CME (Continuing Medical Education) credits;
• 1 Year of comprehensive Practice Support (which continues as long as one is a member);
• And much, much, more!
"The IAPAM has noticed a sharp increase in the registrations for its cosmetic procedures, hands-on, CME training programs like botox/fillers, lasers, microdermabrasion, and non-invasive body shaping; along with its medically supervised weight loss program, all of which are not insurance-covered procedures, and which are in demand by a majority of physicians' existing patients," says Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the IAPAM (http://www.iapam.com).
