On September 24 of 2015, two friends, Kareem Assassa and Dr. Fouad Talic, shared ideas of how to standardize the quality of aesthetic medicine, dental aesthetics, and cosmetic surgery on a global scale. They wanted to create a forum that would enable any willing medical professional in the world to learn aesthetics without the restrictions of time, communication, or travel. They imagined an academy that would grant immediate access to quality online learning on a multicultural platform. They envisioned a global community of passionate practitioners contributing the most comprehensive aesthetic medicine, dental esthetics and cosmetic surgery training and educational content. They formulated a plan to provide a centralized platform that would shift the current method of training by taking it online and making it easily available to any medical or dental practitioner from anywhere in the world. They dreamed of a social learning management system that would unite practitioners from various specialties across the globe at a single point. They were driven to create a platform that would break the barriers of inaccessibility and unreachability. They were determined to set a new standard for online aesthetics training. They were ready to push the level of quality and care in the field of aesthetic medicine, dental aesthetics, and cosmetic surgery, one practitioner at a time.
Their commitment to quality was uncompromising. They felt that the quality standards for the International Academy of Aesthetics would not be set within the core of its online programs but more so in the force of connecting like-minded, masterful aesthetic professionals within a single platform. They trusted that if they could create an online platform that offered creative methods of learning with social networking capabilities through a technologically advanced yet easy to use interface then the International Academy of Aesthetics would become the world’s greatest resource for the advancement, development, and evolution of aesthetic medicine, dental aesthetics, and cosmetic surgery. They believed that if they could set the stage for the most talented aesthetic professionals in the world to contribute to the advancement of aesthetic medicine, dental aesthetics, and cosmetic surgery then they could accomplish their vision statement:
“To become the world’s most recognized online academy where medical and dental professionals can learn and teach the proper knowledge and skills to contribute to the global advancement of care and quality in the field of aesthetic medicine, dental aesthetics, and cosmetic surgery.”
This was their vision, this was their mission, and this is the International Academy of Aesthetics. Get ready to learn, educate, and network! Read more here.
