Success Stories: A Look Into Our Group Training

Empire Medical Training has demonstrated exemplary experience in delivering specialized training to both large and small groups in the United States and abroad. Below, you will find a few written examples of training provided by Empire Medical Training since 2008 (although Empire has been providing training since 1998).

Examples from 2017–2023

group-training-examples-641w

Texas Hospital System

Empire Medical Training customized a program on NEUROTOXINS for 36 resident physicians at a hospital system in Texas (to maintain confidentiality).

It was decided that the most effective training method for this specific group was to offer virtual training followed by in-person, hands-on training at their facility in Texas.

Empire provided on-site training, utilizing our team of trainers, which included numerous top-tier aesthetic physicians, assistants (Nurse Practitioners who are also expert aesthetic injectors and maintain their own practices in their respective states), and the Empire administrative team.

Medical School Teaching Organizations VENUES

Empire has provided group training at various Medical School Systems including

cornell university columbia university irving medical center rosalind franklin university unlv college of medicine central florida vanderbilt university the university of texas at dallas loyola university chicago ucla los angeles university of california ucRiverside university of california, irvine

Physician Group

A common scenario involves providing training in aesthetic procedures. Over the past several years, Empire has offered training to large physician groups in basic aesthetic techniques, including neurotoxins, dermal fillers, and surface treatments for the skin (e.g., chemical peels and microdermabrasion). Many groups request this initial ‘basic’ training to identify the best candidates for performing more advanced techniques in their practices later on.

Nursing Organization

Empire was approached by a well-known organization to provide comprehensive aesthetic training for their member nurses. The group was limited to 40 Nurse Practitioners. A key focus of this group was to ensure safety and correct technique were shared throughout, and that they learned a standard of care to prevent unwanted complications and side effects. Empire recommended initiating the program with a comprehensive course in facial anatomy, which is an ideal way to learn how to avoid complications in aesthetics. This was followed by training in various injectables, including neurotoxins, fillers, sclerotherapy, and laser treatments.

Internal Medicine/Family Physicians

In 2021, Empire Medical Training was proud to be chosen by a hospital system (under confidential terms) to provide training to internal medicine and family physicians in performing dermatologic procedures. Their objective was to ensure that their primary care physicians had a foundational level of knowledge and could either treat patients or refer cases requiring intervention by a dermatology specialist.

Livestream/Virtual Education

In 2020, Empire was among the first to develop a highly effective, unique virtual training platform that includes live stream broadcasts. Our students expressed the need for the live component delivered by our physician team to enhance the experience and make it more comprehensive and effective.

Examples from 2008–2016

National Healthcare System

Empire delivered pain management training to a national healthcare system. Their Director of Medical Education collaborated with Dr. Cosentino (Empire’s President and Founder) to create a customized program that integrated at-home ‘virtual training’ with in-person hands-on training. The group, consisting of over 130 physicians, successfully completed and obtained their certification in ‘Non-Spinal Joint Injection Procedures.’ All of our programs are accredited for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ (CME).

Florida Dental Association

In 2008, Empire Medical Training was proudly chosen by the FDA (Florida Dental Association) to provide training to their member dentists in Neurotoxin injections. The training took place in Miami Beach, Florida, and upon completion, approximately 150 dentists proudly received their certification from Empire Medical Training. During this program, Empire enlisted expert trainers, including renowned plastic surgeons and others with expertise in performing aesthetic procedures. When conducting training for larger groups, it is essential not only to provide the most qualified physician trainers but also to ensure the correct ratio of physician trainers to students to guarantee a successful educational event.

Global Education

Hong Kong: Empire provided training on various days throughout the year to a group in Hong Kong interested in learning a variety of anti-aging and aesthetic procedures. The training was conducted in small groups of 25 physicians at different times during the year. Empire dispatched several physician trainers to their location, and upon completion, the physician practitioners received certificates of completion.

Australia: In 2015, Empire Medical Training traveled to Australia to offer training in hormone management and regenerative techniques. In this case, Empire led the training, but we were assisted by Australian physicians who contributed their expertise in various techniques and procedures.

From 1998–2007

25,000 Physicians Trained

Empire began offering training in all areas of medicine in 1998. While our ‘group training’ option was not fully developed at that time, Empire had already trained over 25,000 physicians, nurses, and dentists through a combination of in-person classroom training, on-site preceptorship, and large-group training.
