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.
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 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.
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.
The student must complete 60 credits
Upon completion of the two-year learning process, which involves acquiring theoretical knowledge and practical skills, submitting Final Research Project, passing assessment and obtaining the Master's degree in Specialization in Medical-Surgical Lasers and Related Technologies for Aesthetic Dermatology Treatments from Nebrija University, students will be able to apply the following specific competences in their professional practice:
The modality of this Master's degree is Blended. The training program lasts two years, taught by a faculty of professors carefully selected based on their academic, professional, teaching and research experience.
The first year of the Master's degree includes a set of general chapters of online theoretical material.
The online teaching system will be carried out entirely through the Virtual Campus, accessible online through the teletraining platform currently in use at the University.
At the beginning of the course, the student is provided, online (email and downloadable material from the website), with the general documentation of the Master's degree, which will include:
This material will be accessible at all times through the Virtual Campus.
Each subject is coordinated by a tutor-professor, who is responsible for setting the training itineraries and providing students, through the Virtual Campus, with all the necessary material to take the subject.
The Virtual Campus for each subject is structured around a set of folders for communication, documentation, notices, etc. typical of e-learning educational projects. The platform also offers a series of fundamental tools for online learning, such as forums, videoconferencing, submission of work or document repositories for the dissemination of notes among students. Additionally, it incorporates tools such as surveys and exercises.
The teaching of the subjects is structured on training itineraries that are learning sequences programmed by the tutor based on the contents of the subject.
The tutor monitors the students' progress, knowing at all times what documents they have read and how much time they have spent on it.
The professors are permanently accessible via email with a maximum response time of 48 hours.
The publication of documentation is distributed throughout the academic year, in several installments corresponding to the different modules and learning stages, so that the student gradually assimilates the subject matter. Each of these educational material publications will be composed of various types of documents:
The first year is complemented by a succession of 10 scheduled interactive theoretical-practical webinars.
Each webinar will be taught by an expert physician in the corresponding topic. It will consist of an audiovisual presentation by the speaker, to then give way to the students and resolve any questions that may arise. The duration of each webinar will be 2.5 hours. including the time of participation for students. Other complementary webinars will also be taught by doctors and instructors of the industry, under the supervision of the teaching staff, or by independent expert practitioners.
The second year of the Master's degree focuses on dermatological and dermal aesthetic treatments, with a second series of chapters of theoretical-practical material, a practical course of face-to-face instruction of 40 teaching hours and an internship of 70 teaching hours of clinical practices in accredited medical centers with laser technologies. In addition, the Master's Final Research Project will be prepared and presented to the tribunal, with tutored guidance.
Practical face-to-face course of 40 teaching hours in a university teaching classroom equipped with laser. It will be held in a single intensive week from Monday to Friday, 4 hours in the morning and 4 hours in the afternoon, with the support of the industry, at the Nebrija University campus in Madrid. In collaboration with the industry manufacturer of laser equipment and EBD.
Submission and passing a tutored research project or Final Research Project (FRP). Each student must present and pass the results of a basic, clinical or bibliographic research project related to the contents of the master's degree before an evaluating tribunal. Each student will have the help of a tutor to carry out their research project. The estimated time for the execution of the FRP is 9 months.
In order to obtain the corresponding degree, it will be necessary to take the theoretical-practical contents, pass the online theoretical evaluations, pass a face-to-face theoretical-practical exam, pass the evaluation of the internship tutor, pass the evaluation of the project tutor and pass the presentation of the FRP before the corresponding tribunal.

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.
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.
