What does IAPAM Certification Mean?
The IAPAM (International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine) 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 5,000 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 31 AMA Cat 1 PRA 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.

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
