In collaboration with cosmetic medical clinics, the HealthCert clinical attachments program provides GPs with practical support training in the art and science of aesthetic medicine. Participants will have the unique opportunity to enhance their knowledge of procedures in dedicated facilities by observing experts and participating in patient consultations. This may include all aspects of treatment including initial consultations and patient treatment options as well as various procedures, use of equipment and patient follow-ups. Participants will increase the safety and accuracy of their work, deepen their understanding of establishing and operating a successful aesthetic practice, and gain the confidence to independently perform various procedures on their patients.
