Teaching Aesthetics with a GoPro? That’s a First!

The American Association of Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery Uses a GoPro and a Head Mount to Broadcast Their Hands-on Training Courses

The American Association of Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery (AAAMS) located in Beverly Hills, California took an innovative approach to aesthetic medicine training by using a GoPro camera to broadcast a portion of their Aesthetics 101 hands on training course. The two-day hands-on training course was conducted on June 11 – 12 at the AAAMS Headquarters in Beverly Hills, California. Attendees from various parts of the world including Mexico, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and the US gathered to learn about Botulinum Toxin, dermal fillers and chemical peels. Dr. Sam Assassa, President of the AAAMS, decided to strap on a GoPro headset and start recording a portion of the two-day hands on facial aesthetics training course.

I wanted to go from patient to patient in the training room while enabling the trainees to see things from my perspective, a treating physician. I figured it would give a raw yet unique perspective. In fact, it was a great educational resource for our members to view after the training course. I hope to see more associations using technological solutions to enhance the learning experience,” said Dr. Sam Assassa, President of The American Association of Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery.

The entire video is exclusively available on the International Academy of Aesthetics platform.

The AAAMS continues to serve as the leading internationally recognized association dedicated to the proper teaching of aesthetic medicine and non-surgical procedures. Partnering up with IAA has enabled them to create online and hybrid programs that combine online didactic and hands-on training courses. The AAAMS plans to offer a comprehensive two-year Aesthetic Medicine Fellowship that combines e-learning through the IAA platform and hands-on training courses all over the world that will lead to a Specialty Fellowship Diploma in Aesthetic Medicine. More information will be available soon.
