The marks of a competent medical professional are her up to date knowledge and her willingness always to learn. Aside from keeping up with the newest research, many doctors demonstrate their growth mindsets by regularly seeking out additional qualifications. There are a variety of training courses available to doctors in the US and abroad. So, how does one choose the next step for their career?
For those interested in pursuing the next best growth opportunities, here are a few things you might consider.
First, consider your priorities and the needs and desires of your patients. Do they align? And, would gaining certain knowledge and skill sets benefit them?
One thing to consider is on what medical services are your patients spending their discretionary money. For example, are many of them seeking out aesthetic treatments elsewhere, that you could just as easily provide at your location? If so, you may find a nexus between the needs of your patients and a potential area for growing your practice.
Within your current client base, you only need a small cohort of patients to give you a feel for what learning is of most benefit. If a subset of patients expresses an interest in or are already pursuing, Botox, dermal filler or PRP treatments elsewhere, then that service would be much more conveniently provided by you.
As a business proposition, it is very logical. Aside from the convenience of it, your patients’ regularly scheduled visits and communications with your office are an ideal medium by which to inform them of the aesthetic treatments you also provide.
If the need exists in the community you service, the cost / benefit analysis is a simple matter of looking at the cost of the training; usually in the range of $700 to $2500. The upper-end figure gets you live, in-person training in all relevant injectables in one day and online courses start at $700. Comparing the cost of the training to a fair market fee for treatments reveals how lucrative this type of growth can be.
The Dentox training courses are considered the premiere continuing education option because they provide an all-in-one course taught by a respected leader in the field. Dr. Katz has over 30 years of experience working in medical aesthetics. He’s travelled the world to speak as an authority on facial aesthetics, and he’s the originator of many patents (and his name appears on many others).
The feedback for the courses received at the Dentox homepage and here on the blog is consistently positive. Participants highlight the extent of Dr. Katz’s expert knowledge, and practical teaching style (he’s a “guide on the side” and not a boring “sage on the stage”, one nurse reported). The praise for the skills in Botox, fillers and especially PRP are unanimous.
…If you determine, in consultation with your patients (and your pocketbook) that the next step in your professional learning might involve aesthetic treatments, consider learning with the best at Dentox. Our courses are not run by salespeople looking to sell you equipment, we’re lifelong learners, and we invite you to come learn with us.
