A Cadaver Dissection CourseBoston, MA | Hartford, CT

The Leader in Aesthetic Medical Training



Course Format

CME Credit



Live Demo


Applied Anatomy at Aesthetic Mentor is an accredited course for medical professionals to help 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. While observing a facial dissection on a fresh cadaver, you will participate in an in-depth discovery of each layer of the face, have an opportunity to inject the facial tissue with dermal fillers, and review 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.

A combination of live cadaveric dissection, classroom didactic, and injection demonstrations offer a unique learning environment and platform to expand the learner's knowledge.

This 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.

Taking the cadaver dissection course at Aesthetic Mentor proved to be beneficial. After injecting for 12 years, I continue to always learn new things and improve my knowledge level and therefore, my skill set too. I will never think I am too experienced or knowledgeable to disregard an opportunity for advanced learning. Stay humble, always be willing and open to learn new things is my motto! Take the class, you will NOT regret it!!
