Medical photonics, photomedicine or medical-surgical laser constitutes a discipline with a well-established body of doctrine at an international level.

The contents of this master's degree are designed to train experts and opinion leaders in the use of lasers and light sources indicated for aesthetic and dermal aesthetic treatments. To a lesser extent, other non-laser energy-based equipment is also included, such as radio frequency, ultrasound and other emerging technologies.

In Spain and Latin America, there are few specific training programs in medical-surgical lasers. However, there is a significant demand for training that comes predominantly from aesthetic doctors, dermatologists and plastic surgeons, given that, in these specialties, lasers and new technologies are essential for private medical practice.

This Master's degree is made up of an Advisory Committee of six experts of recognized world prestige.

  • Dr. Michael Gold. Director. Gold Skin Care Center, Nashville, USA.
  • Dr. Christopher Zachary. Professor and Chair Emeritus Department of Dermatology, University of California, Irvine, CA. USA.
  • Dr. Peter Bjerring. Head of the Department of Dermatology. Molhom Hospital. Vejle, Denmark.
  • Dr. Toshio Oshiro. Director. Japan Medical Laser Laboratory. Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, Japan.
  • Dr. Harry Moseley. (United Kingdom). Director. Photobiology Unit. University of Dundee, United Kingdom.
  • Dr. Godfrey Town. Senior investigator. Department of Dermatology. Aalborg University, Denmark.

Endorsed by the Spanish Society for Medical-Surgical Laser (SELMQ)

This Master's program responds to the training needs established by the scientific and medical societies of the sector, and is advised by a committee of 6 world-class experts. This program is the most complete developed to date in the Spanish language and is endorsed by the Spanish Society for Medical-Surgical Laser (SELMQ).

The teaching staff was carefully selected for their successful clinical experience

The teaching staff is mainly made up of renowned medical specialists with extensive theoretical knowledge and many years of practical experience, each of them in their respective fields. The faculty was carefully selected based on the successful clinical experience, academic and university trajectory of the professors, with extensive teaching experience in specialized courses and conferences.

High degree of specialization in the handling of the different types of lasers

Unlike other master's degrees in which the topic of lasers and new technologies is addressed as just another section within the many other types of aesthetic interventions, here the objective is to achieve a high degree of specialization in the management of the different types of lasers, sources of light and emerging technologies that continually arise for aesthetic and dermal aesthetic treatments.

Employability


The medical field in which Laser technology is most applied is in dermal aesthetics. As Aesthetic Medicine is practiced exclusively in private medical field and is not covered by public medicine, this has generated an important health-medical sector with an industrial component of devices, pharmaceutical industry and services, of great economic value. Many medical professionals have directed their professional activity to this sector due to the low remuneration of the rest of public health specialties compared to other countries in our context. A minimally successful medical service in this sector tends to provide professional fees that are much more favorable than the average of other specialties.


Internships in accredited private clinics (face-to-face)

Internship of 70 teaching hours (generally distributed over two weeks in full-time work) in prestigious private clinics that participate as accredited teaching units of the master's degree. In order to facilitate the students' access, these accredited clinics are located in the cities of Madrid, Barcelona and Malaga.

Where possible, the student may choose any of the three locations to carry out the corresponding internship, under the supervision of an individual internship tutor for each student.
