Applied Anatomy with Cadaver Dissection Course Overview

Do you want to be a better, safer, more confident injector? Cadaver Dissection at Aesthetic Mentor is a CME accredited course for medical professionals to help you gain a deeper understanding of the skeletal, vascular, and nervous system anatomy of the face and how it applies to neurotoxin and dermal filler injections. Using a cadaver head, you will learn each layer in depth and even be able to inject with dyed filler and then cross section one half of the cadaver to see how the filler relates to the anatomy. You will also see advanced treatment techniques and demonstrate assessment skills to enhance safety while achieving optimal outcomes sought by patients.

This 8 hour-long course is led by Dr. Joseph A. Russo, a Harvard trained, board-certified Plastic Surgeon with more than 30 years of experience, and his team of expert educators. Following a comprehensive and interactive lecture, a hands-on clinical practicum session gives students the opportunity to visualize and understand facial anatomy. When you choose Aesthetic Mentor for advanced training in aesthetic medicine, our investment in you continues far beyond the classroom, with ongoing support resources including; compliance, safety, continuing education, employment assistance, business development leadership, and access to professional and patient marketing tools.
