Professional Certificate of Aesthetic Medicine

  • : Melbourne VIC 3000


The course is aimed at GPs with a clinical interest in the science of Aesthetic Medicine and the wish to grow their practice in that area. This course assumes no prior knowledge or specific training in the aesthetics field. Participants must have completed their MBBS.

With Medicare rebates frozen for consultations and the cost of providing medical care increasing, incorporating aesthetic medical services to your practice will enhance your patients' overall experience and allow you to operate a more profitable and financially secure practice.

The latest trends in health and skin care result in an increased demand for skin repair and rejuvenation services - and skilled practitioners. Patients seek to improve the quality of their lives through physical changes and prefer to receive these services from a trusted, qualified doctor than from a beautician or cosmetic nurse.

Meeting your patients' aesthetic concerns and helping them to regain their healthy appearance and confidence at their local GP's clinic will build long-term loyalty and add non-Medicare based revenue to your practice. Most aesthetic treatments are safe, quick and low-cost to deliver requiring repeated visits with minimal side-effects, no downtime, and immediately visible results for your patients – a win-win situation.


This course is for general practitioners only. The course assumes no prior knowledge or training in the field.

Professionally recognised qualifications and prior studies may be recognised for entry into this course if the learning outcomes match exactly. Please ask a HealthCert Education Advisor for an individual assessment of your prior qualifications and experience.

  • Concepts of aesthetic medicine, facial ageing and skin classifications.
  • Facial anatomy, facial anaesthesia and planning of cosmetic procedures.
  • Chemical peels and topical skin treatments
  • Chemical composition and safe practice of Botulinum Toxin
  • Dermal fillers and basic filler techniques
  • How to integrate the services into your practice
