Study Programme

Study Programme


Italian and foreign medical graduates.


Aesthetic Medicine is a medical discipline committed to the construction and reconstruction of the individual’s psycho-physical balance. It is adressed to all individuals who do not accept their aesthetic problems. Basically, it promotes the quality of life and health as well as psycho-physical well-being. First of all, it is a prevention medical discipline and also a corrective one. During the prevention phase the doctor teaches the patient how to be aware of their inherited physical features and to accept it in order to protect and manage them according to rules of well-being: nutritional, physical, psychological, behavioural, and cosmetological. During the corrective phase, the programme implies just official techniques: surgical, physiokinetic, thermal and cosmetic.


It is a four-year course that includes 200 hours of lessons given by the University, Hospital and well-known international experts in Aesthetic Medicine.

  • Summary lessons
  • Special lessons
  • Practical sessions and individual tests in labs
  • Traineeship in Outpatient Service of Aesthetic Medicine at Fatebenefratelli Hospital, Tiber Island, Rome, at the Italian Institute of Aesthetic Medicine in Milan and at different Universities, Hospitals and private structures
  • Group works
  • Italian and foreign experiences
  • Insights and individual studies of Aesthetic Medicine


The school, situated in Rome, has reached its 25th Academic Year with 1123 doctors of whom 549 have obtained a Certification Degree.


On March 21, 1994, the International School of Aesthetic Medicine and FIF (International Fatebenefratelli Foundation) opened the Outpatient Services of Aesthetic Medicine to the public at the "S. Giovanni Calibita" Fatebenefratelli Hospital, Tiber Island, Rome. To date, it is the first and only experiment of Aesthetic Medicine within a public Hospital. On February 3, 1999 the Foundation opened a new site in Milan, at the Italian Institution of Aesthetic Medicine. Since 2005 there has been a new Outpatient Service at the Villa Serena, Catanzaro. These structures are both the training ground for practical training of the students and a place where a greater number of patients can have access to hospital fees that are less expensive than those they might incur in private structures. The services, based mostly on prevention, are aimed at the patient whose quality of life is diminished due to their aesthetic problem.

International School of Aesthetic Medicine

Nowadays, in Italy, an increasing number of Doctors dedicate themself to Aesthetic Medicine. This is because they are stressed by an increasing number of demanding clients.

However the lack of University specialisations in this field (for example the difficulty in designing multi-disciplinary courses) has created, over the years, medical operators with relative, not integrated and very incomplete competencies.

Since its foundation, SIME has tried to meet the cultural needs of Doctors who operate in this field by organising annual Congresses, and collaborating with Medical University and Hospital Institutions.

In 1990, encouraged by Regional Institutions, SIME felt the need to improve its commitment from the teaching and training point of view.

Thus, it obtained from Fatebenefratelli Foundation for Research and Training in Health and Social Care - experts in cultural service and sensitive towards new teaching experience – the opportunity to create a Postgraduate Education School in Aesthetic Medicine. It brought to the project its teaching approach and the UIME scientific collaboration.

Nowadays, the School represents not only the opportunity for qualified and specialised training, but also an authoritative scientific and cultural reference - thanks to the high level of consents reached in the research world, in Italy and abroad - which provides a relevant contribution for the community and for public health.
