The swiss medical academy runs under the patronage of the SGMK (Swiss Society of Medical Cosmetics) and offers a well-founded basic training for beauticians, wellness and SPA therapists as well as various further education modules in the field of cosmetics / medical cosmetics and spa for cosmeticians, masseurs, MPA Pharmacists and doctors.

The swiss medical academy emphasizes importance in a contemporary and timeless education and is not subject to the patronage of a cosmetics manufacturer.

Together with a team of highly trained and professional instructors, in cooperation with prestigious SPAs, clinics and cosmetic institutes, the training meets the demands of today's working world in the area of aesthetics and SPA. After completing their studies, the graduates have both a thorough knowledge of the subject and a practical work experience with a wide range of techniques and products. As the number of apprentice spots for cosmeticians in Switzerland is steadily declining, a three-year course of study will be offered in 2017. The swiss medical academy aims at the recognition of the CIDESCO and then offers the graduates the opportunity to obtain the international CIDESCO diploma. The swiss medical academy will be pleased to provide you with more information at our headquarters in Baar.
