Our History

Empire Medical Training Corporate Offices

Empire Medical Training

Empire Medical Training graduates more Physicians and Health Care practitioners compared to any other organization and remains the number #1 CME provider for Procedure training in Non-Surgical and Surgical Aesthetics, Anti-Aging/Functional Medicine, and Interventional Pain Management having trained over 125,000 practitioners since 1998. We are a Physician-Led, “medical” organization with a focus on providing the highest quality live patient training courses working with Preeminent, highly sought-after Physician trainers willing to share their knowledge and expertise so that you can learn the same skills that has facilitated their success.

University Style Curriculum: For over 21 years, Empire has offered more classes and more training options for practitioners. Much like a University, our training is expansive, offering over 35 different classes and topics in Aesthetics, Anti Aging, and Interventional Pain Management, from beginner level to the most advanced topics. To meet the increasing demand for our training, Empire offers over 700 live workshops each year in cities throughout the entire USA as well as Canada and South America. This is in contrast to much of the competition with limited training in Botox, Fillers, and Threads. IF you are a Physician or a Nurse, there is no reason to limit your training.

Renowned “Celebrity” Physician Trainers: Empire works directly with over 40 of the nation’s top Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologists, Pain Management Physicians, Internal Medicine, and many other top Physicians who are recognized in their specialties and in their communities as the best Physician practitioners. Learning something new, especially highly complex and technical procedures that carry a level of risk for the patient, requires teaching from Physicians who have the experience, knowledge, and ability to teach this to others. Unlike many institutions, our training is NOT taught by only a few instructors or NON PHYSICIANS, we provide you with a variety of highly credentialed, highly successful “Physician Only” instructors who are practice owners and successful in their careers, is there any other way to learn?

Specialized Training Options: Empire is the only training organization to offer additional, more “specialized” options for training. In addition to over 700 live workshops offered each year around the country at resort hotels, Empire is proud to offer training at our state of the art training centers,  “Centers of Excellence” also located throughout the country. The instructors are “celebrity” status Physician trainers and participants are provided very personalized training as these workshops are limited to only 8 participants in total. This specialized, VIP training , in addition to many other methods of training, such as our In-Office Preceptorship, Shadow Preceptorship, “Meet the Experts” programs and the annual Empire-Aesthetics-Meeting™ (EAM20™) are just a few examples of how training with Empire gives you the most flexibility in your training decision. Read more about Empire’s specialized “Methods of Training”.  

A word about the competition: As imitation is the greatest compliment, we thank our competitors for their ongoing compliments. We understand how hard it is to imitate quality and our membership program which for over 20 years has offered the most cost effective way for Physicians to receive their training. 

Member Benefits: Empire’s Membership model remains the most iconic method for training among the medical community. The different membership plans not only allows practitioners to attend up to 35 courses at one price (oftentimes cheaper than what competitors charge for two courses) but provides a host of unbeatable Member benefits. Empire members receive numerous benefits starting from huge discounts on Aesthetic products (like Neurotoxins and Fillers) to receiving free tickets to special events, access to the member portal where you can find much needed consent and treatment forms and many other training tools, and much much more. 

As an Empire participant, you become part of our expanding network of over 150,000 physicians, representing the medical and aesthetics industry. During each workshop, you are also introduced to a variety of vendors, manufacturers, compounding pharmacies, and other important components in the industry. Our Vendor partnerships have been created over a 22 year span in order to ensure that you are exposed to the newest technologies and innovations and to provide you with special pre negotiated pricing on all your specialty supplies.

Each of our administrative staff is knowledgeable in ALL the 35 courses in order to help you understand your best option for training. 

Our administrative staff also ensures that all educational materials such as training manuals and handouts are up to date and correct. This is the “behind the scenes” team that is credited with implementing quality workshops for you.

Our Physician Advisory Board

Our remaining faculty comprises our Physician Advisory Board. The PAB’s main role is to provide innovation for all our training programs. Something that is impossible for part time, individual trainers. Empire has the resources to provide the highest level of training and newest educational techniques, even using IPADS at all training programs. That’s right, each student is issued an IPAD to use during the training workshops to follow along in the presentations! They keep us current! 

With the ever-changing dynamics of Aesthetics and Medicine, it is easy to fall behind. It is only possible to stay current if you are working on staying current all the time! The PAB also serves as the regulatory group overseeing quality control measures for each workshop provided and training manuals distributed. Our Advisory Board can be contacted at any time with concerns or questions about specific training events.

Our Teaching Staff

We are not a part time establishment offering weekend programs as a side job to a full time medical practice. Our teaching staff is a separate group of physicians and other health care professionals. Of the 40 associated professional instructors employed by Empire Medical Training, 28 are board certified in specialties such as Plastic Surgery, Pain Management, Dermatology, Internal Medicine and many other specialties. We believe our Physician faculty comprise the very best in their field and have extensive clinical and teaching experience. 

We have chosen our distinguished faculty based on their academic excellence as well as their documented experience in clinical medicine and teaching experience. Workshops are also taught by other non-physician specialists who provide vital information related to the topic or workshop presented. Some of these specialists include Certified Professional Coders (for specific Medicare related topics), Anatomy Professors (for the anatomy portion of the Pain Management Program), Marketing Specialists, Laser Technicians (to help during the laser demonstration portion of certain workshops) and other instructors who contribute their specialized knowledge and information to further help with your education. Below is only a partial listing of our faculty.

A Word about our competition.

Picture of Smaller Competitors vs Empire

For one, we never bash our competition as is done so commonly in the industry. WE welcome the competition, in fact as the old adage goes, “Imitation Is The Best Form Of Flattery”

What makes us different is that we guarantee our services and we have the resources to provide the quality training that we do. It takes more than a fancy website to provide the level of training that has been sought after for 21 years.

We care, we support.

Peru Christmas Charitable Fund

Last year, Empire Medical Training and Rx Medical Web began our annual charity to support many of the impoverished families living in small villages in PERU. We will continue this support each year during Christmas time and plan to extend this support on a regular basis throughout the year as well. It is often difficult to begin a project like this for anyone, sometimes its best to just begin somewhere and help. We acknowledge that our charity is not a recognized, charitable organization for which your tax dollars may be deducted, however, our dollars are still helping this group of people. Soon enough, we will have the legal structure and entity so that our supporters are able to properly deduct their donations. In the meantime, we thank you for helping us bring a very happy time last year and for the years to come to these families in PERU. Last year this group of families was very surprised and happy for this event we provided. They are looking forward to a similar experience, and our team will make sure this happens.

For last year’s contribution, we would like to thank all the contributors to our charity. Our supporters are mostly attendees to the Empire Medical Training workshops and we truly appreciate their generosity and caring nature.

We would also like to pay special thanks to Thomas Zazarino for his generous contribution to our fund raiser and for which without his contribution, the event would not be the same.

Additional supporters whose contribution came at a timely nature and certainly helped our efforts, special thanks to Tom Mastanduano from Master Pharm of New York.

In Peru, Christmas is fairly similar to celebrations held in the US and Europe, when many families get together, celebrate and exchange gifts. Families generally eat turnkey and east Pane-ton (a cake/bread filled with fruits) and drink hot chocolate. In the week preceding Christmas, it is also popular for communities, churches or charitable organization to organize “Chocolatadas” where people who make a Christmas gesture to poor children and families by offering them a cup of hot chocolate, food and perhaps small gifts.
