NEW YORK, March 24 THE Aesthetic Show, the leading multidisciplinary educational forum for the medical aesthetic market, today announced the expansion of THE Aesthetic Academy to New York City. THE Aesthetic Academy is the first regionally-based event series dedicated to providing the most comprehensive practice building course in medical aesthetics.
The second of four events planned this year takes place on May 1, 2010 at the famous St. Regis Hotel in New York City. An inaugural event, and the first in the 2010 series, is scheduled for March 27th at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.; similar events will be hosted in Dallas and Miami later this year. The event series' primary objective is to help practices maximize the financial power of aesthetic medicine.
"We are taking the lead in defining the next level of development for an industry which generates over $30 billion in fees for aesthetic practices globally each year," said Michael Moretti, Program Chairman of THE Aesthetic Academy. "Building a strong aesthetic practice in today's economic environment requires more than just great clinical outcomes. THE Aesthetic Academy equips practices with the requisite skill set and knowledge base to financially succeed in a highly competitive marketplace."
As acknowledgement for great accomplishments in advancing aesthetic medicine, THE Aesthetic Academy will present the prestigious "Outstanding Achievement in Aesthetic Medicine" Award to Michael Kane, M.D., a New York City plastic surgeon, who is the keynote speaker at the May 1st event. Dr. Kane is an internationally acclaimed plastic surgeon and educational luminary. "I'm honored to receive this award and I look forward to sharing my insights on how practices can maximize their opportunities in delivering aesthetic medicine with my esteemed colleagues," commented Dr. Kane.
Several other high-profile speakers will participate in THE Aesthetic Academy program, including some of industry's elite physicians and practice consultants. "THE Aesthetic Academy is a break-out concept and I am thrilled to be a part of it. The Academy provides the most comprehensive practice management training program, packed with proven strategies and tactics for any practice seeking the best ways to optimize its aesthetic offering and patient experience," remarked Dianne Quibell, M.D., a leading aesthetic physician and member of THE Aesthetic Academy faculty.
Unlike traditional medical education meetings, THE Aesthetic Academy is solely focused on expanding practice growth and profitability and is open to all medical professionals including, physicians, nurses and office staff seeking best-in-class practice management education. "THE Aesthetic Academy fills a huge unmet need in the industry by providing an interactive forum for exchanging ideas with peers and experts while receiving best-in-class instruction on key practice building topics," noted Cheryl Whitman, a leading practice management expert and member of THE Aesthetic Academy faculty.
