The Galderma Academy Train the Trainer programme

The Galderma Academy Train the Trainer programme

Galderma UK Ltd

The Galderma Academy Train the Trainer three-day course is the only course of its kind in the aesthetics industry which teaches clinicians to teach others. Using the Galderma Faculty and drawing on the well-established Harvard Business Model ensures consistency and alignment.

The course is a peer-to-peer programme whereby key global and local experts and trainers from a multidisciplinary team undertake safe and scientifically grounded clinical training.

The course is delivered in a dedicated state of the art training centre which means that key presentations and clinical elements are filmed, and individuals evaluate their own and the performances of each other in a way that leads to constructive, supportive feedback.

Each course has four modules – two scientific curriculums on toxin and hyaluronic acid fillers, as well as a review of the entire Galderma portfolio and a clinical assessment of injection skills. Participants are asked to prepare presentations to outline and assess their scientific and practical knowledge and ensure that they are able to deliver a competent standard of facial assessment and injection technique. Days 1 and 2 focus on the science behind fillers and toxins, product characteristics and clinical evidence and understanding of the Galderma portfolio, with an evaluation of flash facial assessments. On day 3 there is an evaluation of podium presentation techniques, together with a demonstration of the skills needed for product selection and injecting.

Sinclair

Sinclair

Sinclair

Sinclair Pharma’s training programmes offer instruction and guidance for three strategic products in our portfolio – Silhouette Soft sutures, Ellansé collagen stimulating dermal filler and Perfectha HA.

We run one-day Silhouette Soft training courses which are limited to plastic surgeons, doctors and dentists. We only admit medically trained professionals because the company is scientifically and medically orientated with a strong safety record. When physicians invest in Sinclair’s aesthetic products it is important they are not just buying a commodity, and that they learn about the ageing process, its relationship to human anatomy and how our products can be skilfully applied to address them. The courses are hosted at Harley Health Village and the full day includes a theory session, a treatment/product demonstration and a hands-on practical session.

Training in Ellansé is also run as a one-day course and is designed for surgeons, doctors, dentists and nurses. The focus of the training is on full-face rejuvenation using both needle and cannula. Ellansé training is held at Wigmore Medical’s facility in London, and workshops are also run regionally either in clinic or at the HealthXchange Academy in Manchester. The day-long course comprises a theory session about anatomy applied to aesthetic medicine, product demonstration and hands-on practical session.

We currently run two advanced courses for Perfectha: non-surgical rhinoplasty and tear trough. Each of these runs as a one-day course for surgeons, doctors, dentists and nurses. Each includes a theory session, product demonstration and hands-on practical session

Wigmore Medical Ltd

Wigmore Medical delivers a wide range of training courses to a varied audience of both medical and non-medical professionals. Our comprehensive and innovative training calendar—spanning skincare, injectables and equipment—encourages people from around the world to train with us and expand their professional knowledge.

While the majority of our clientele is UK and Ireland based, we continue to welcome delegates from other European and Middle Eastern countries. Although the internet and social media has a large part to play, word-of-mouth recommendations remain the most popular advertising tool.

We believe our delegates travel to us largely due to the way our training sessions are structured. Small classes with the opportunity to practice hands-on are led by our team of highly experienced Trainers who are fully familiar not only with the products and techniques, but also the business of Medical Aesthetics. Delegates often raise the question of how to successfully incorporate new treatments into their existing business, or how to go about starting up in the industry. Our learned Course Directors are able to offer their invaluable advice in an extremely competitive market.

Our main training facility is conveniently located in Central London, a stone’s throw from Harley Street, however we also run our ZO courses in Birmingham, Leeds, Glasgow and Dublin. ZO training has proved so popular, we now host the London courses at the Royal Society of Medicine and at the Avanti Aesthetic Academy on Harley Street to accommodate delegate numbers and benefit from their state-of-the-art facilities.

Open seven days a week, our well-stocked London training facility is also regularly hired by fellow training companies and product manufacturers. We welcome any opportunity for practitioners to continue their professional development, explore the latest launches or begin to evolve their practice into the field of Medical Aesthetics.
