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.

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.
