The IAPAM was founded to help physicians add non-insurance medical procedures to their practice in a profitable manner. Since 2006, we have been providing hands-on, CME aesthetic medicine and medically supervised weight loss training programs. 1,000’s of physicians have successfully added “fun” medicine into their practice. They find it refreshing to see happy and healthy patients!

All of the procedures the IAPAM teaches are cash-based, you will no longer wait for dwindling insurance reimbursements at a later date; you will be paid in full when you perform the procedure.

We will teach you what they don’t teach you in medical school, the right way to structure a successful cash-based medical practice, along with expert medical training in those procedures.

Adding aesthetics is much more than just adding Botox® to your practice, the IAPAM has an expert faculty of physicians to help you do it the right way, so you can meet your patients needs and make money at the same time!

Definition of Aesthetic Medicine:

“A branch of medicine focused on satisfying the aesthetic desires and goals of patients. This specialty is primarily focused on the pathophysiology of aging skin, and adheres to scientific based procedures.

Physicians practicing Aesthetic Medicine are trained in both invasive and non-invasive treatment modalities, and typically utilize a combination to meet the needs of the patient.” ~ International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine
