Board Certification Courses in Aesthetic Medicine/Aesthetic Surgery

The IAAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Board Certification courses are available to licensed physicians from various disciplines. These courses are divided into three sections as outlined below.
It’s important to note that IAAM’s Board Certification is primarily an educational initiative and does not serve as a license to engage in Aesthetic Medicine professionally.
IAAM’s Board Certification stands as a prominent global recognition for licensed physicians engaged in the practice of Aesthetic Medicine, reflecting a mastery of both its artistic and scientific aspects.


Upon finishing the course, trainees undergo a comprehensive assessment that evaluates the content taught throughout the training. If they achieve a satisfactory score, they receive the title of “Certified Aesthetic Physician” from the International Association of Aesthetic Medicine (IAAM) and are granted an IAAM-endorsed Certificate in Aesthetic Medicine.


Following the course’s conclusion, trainees undergo an all-encompassing examination that covers the course material. In the event of obtaining a satisfactory passing grade, they are bestowed the title of “Diplomat Aesthetic Physician” by the International Association of Aesthetic Medicine (IAAM) and are provided a Diploma in Aesthetic Medicine, endorsed by IAAM.

For Aesthetic Medicine Board Certification: After engaging in six months of practical experience within the field of Aesthetic Medicine subsequent to completing DCAM, the Diplomat is considered eligible to participate in the Board Certification examination. Achieving a favorable pass mark of 70% in a multiple-choice question (MCQ) assessment leads participants to the practical examination phase. Those who succeed in both practical and written tests receive a Diplomat certificate signed by the IAAM Board, signifying the designation of “Board Certified” by the International Association of Aesthetic Medicine (IAAM).

Board certification underscores a physician’s proficiency and exceptional expertise, aiming to provide them with a crucial advantage over competitors.

The process of recertification is a formalized procedure designed to assist professionals in maintaining their skills and knowledge at a contemporary and elevated level, aligned with existing standards. Patients, healthcare practitioners, physicians, insurers, and quality-focused organizations perceive Board Certification as a significant gauge of a physician’s knowledge, experience, and abilities to deliver high-quality specialized care. Physicians aspiring for board certification must effectively meet the requirements set by the IAAM’s Scientific Board or successfully complete and pass an examination process designed to evaluate their adeptness in the pertinent knowledge and skills outlined in the core competency guidelines.
