Academy for Injection Anatomy

The American Med Spa Association (AmSpa) has launched the Academy for Injection Anatomy’s (AIA) Virtual Foundations of Injection Anatomy and Practice, providing on-demand digital instruction for new medical aesthetic injectors. The on-demand course complements the AIA Virtual Anatomy Lecture Series as an introduction to aesthetic injections, enhancing AIA’s offerings for medical spa practitioners at all stages in their practice.

The AIA Foundations of Injection Anatomy and Practice, taught by George Baxter-Holder, DNP, ARNP, CANS, and Hermine Warren, DNP, APRN, CANS, is designed for practitioners who are beginning their journey in medical aesthetics. This lecture-based course establishes the fundamentals of being a successful injector, as well as a beginning anatomical study for aesthetics. If you want to begin working your way toward being an amazing injector, this is where you start your journey, with the next step being the AIA Virtual Anatomy Lecture Series or joining a live, hands-on AIA Advanced Cadaver Course, featuring Christopher C. Surek, DO, FACS, and hosted throughout the United States.

"We have been so honored to work with industry legends George Baxter-Holder and Hermine Warren to bring a much-needed, experience-based perspective to training for new injectors entering the medical aesthetics space,” says AmSpa COO, Cathy Christensen. “Both George and Hermine have spent years practicing and training injectors of different levels of expertise, and this program was developed with their unparalleled insight in mind. We are thrilled to bring this offering to our digital learners and look forward to the impact this education will have on new injectors in the industry."
