Training & Research

Training

Training wing of Rouge Valley Laser Skin Care has a well-organized basic and advanced training program, and this program is well supervised by our highly trained resource persons. The program is a blend of theoretical and practical components in it. Rouge Valley Laser Skin Care is providing training in the new field of Laser Aesthetics so that this new technology might be well adapted by our trainees. Currently, we are offering two levels of training for international medical graduates (IMGs). We are launching 6 months Diploma in Aesthetics shortly.

Our training programs

We have 3 types of Training Programs:

  • Fellowship Training
  • Certificate Course
  • Diploma in Aesthetics

Fellowship Training

The Fellowship is a training program that combines audiovisual lectures and hands-on tutorials in a clinical setting. The course provides the practitioners with maximum exposure to the scientific and industry information necessary to introduce non-invasive aesthetic procedures in their practice.

A fellowship is a highly regarded credential and a great way to prepare a practitioner for advanced aesthetic practice. After completing a fellowship in the relevant sub-specialty, the physician is able to practice without direct supervision by other physicians in that sub-specialty.

This is a one-year full-time training program. It is open to international medical graduates. This training includes a highly organized series of lectures, video demonstrations, practical demonstrations, and clinical practices under the direct supervision of the faculty members. We have two departments; Aesthetics Department and Laser Aesthetics Department. We offer 1 Year Fellowship Training in each department. The fellows might be engaged in our research projects following the successful completion of their second evaluation at the end of the third month. They will be offered a part-time “Research Assistant” position for the remaining period of their Fellowship program. They will be paid as per the rules of the organization for this position. The organization may arrange a single room accommodation in the dormitory for the Fellowship trainees upon their request.

Fellowship Description:

Fellowships are awarded by the Advisory Board of Rouge Valley Laser Skin Care for each academic year for the period of September to August. The application for these positions starts in March 1 and will remain open till April 30. Eligible candidates are encouraged to send a preliminary online application for primary screening. After primary screening, a shortlist of preliminary selection is made and the candidates will receive an email from the training department for sending formal application and all required official documents for final selection. After evaluation by the selection committee, finally, Fellowship will be offered to the International Medical Graduates (IMGs). The selected trainees for the program must report to the office of Rouge Valley Laser Skin Care in person and be registered by August 15.
