IAPAM Botox Certification

What does IAPAM Certification Mean?

IAPAM MemberThe IAPAM was founded in 2006 to teach physicians the best practices when adding aesthetic and/or medically supervised weight loss procedures to their traditional medical practices. We have been providing hands-on, CME aesthetic medicine and medically supervised weight loss training programs. To date, over 4,500 physicians have attended our training programs.

Our hands-on live training programs are CME (Continuing Medical Education) approved by the ACCME. Our programs last between 8-25 hours, and physicians and licensed healthcare providers can earn up to 32.5 AMA CME credits. CME credits help physicians and other licensed healthcare providers obtain accredited continuing medical education to help them improve their practice and deliver high-quality, safe, effective patient care. We also offer additional education in the best practices of operating a medical practice.
