On the 23rd January, we had a doctor training day to hone our injectable skills, increase our collaborative efforts, and encourage open discussion between doctors regarding the techniques we use in clinic to treat a variety of indications. Dr Tapan Patel, Dr Nestor Demosthenous, and Dr Apul Parikh, came together to examine three patients and exchange views on their treatment needs. This was a great opportunity for the doctors to learn from each other and refine their abilities by performing injectable treatments on both complex and simple cases.
Collaboration between doctors
Continued professional development is so important in the cosmetic industry, as new techniques and technologies are developed, so must our skill, both for better results and increased patient safety. Having a doctor training day on a regular basis affords us the opportunity to ensure that our doctors are all treating patients with similar goals in mind, so every patient receives the same high level of care from any practitioner they see.
All of our practice is guided by the PHI Commandments of Excellence, Credibility, No Compromise, Satisfaction, and Innovation. These tenets inform everything we do in the clinic, as well as the professional development that we seek out and create.
The perfect environment
Set over 5 floors, with beautiful therapy and training rooms, PHI Clinic is the perfect place for both receiving treatments and sharing knowledge. The training room was the ideal background for the discussion of techniques shared by the doctors in attendance.
We are privileged at PHI that we have access to outstanding products, and the ideas and knowledge of the highly skilled professionals who work here, giving us near constant in-house teaching and learning opportunities, as well as being able to provide them through Academy 102.
This injectables training day was centred around wrinkle injections and dermal fillers, practicing and discussing wrinkle relaxing injections in complex and simple cases, as well as analysing different dermal filler techniques to augment the nose, lips, tear trough, and chin.
Doctor training day in quotes
Mr Apul Parikh – “The thing about today that I think is fantastic is having the ability to discuss complex cases, with a variety of specialists who have a lot of experience and have been working for a long time in the industry. It’s all about making sure we’re doing similar things and working well together to ensure that patients have as high a level of satisfaction as possible.”
