Photogenic energy generated by medical laser devices is a most important treatment aspect in aesthetic medicine world-wide, however aesthetic laser devices are often operated by untrained personnel, which is no longer allowed in several countries due to latest jurisprudence.
To take into account the different interests of clinical practitioners and of scientific researchers, the study course program can be individually customised. It is a frequent practise to participate alongside professional activities, or to reduce the program with emphasis on particular areas of expertise.
The full MSc PALM-program contains lectures, seminars and exercises with two focal points: Hands-on practice-related focus, where the students will implement and test acquired knowledge under clinical and practical conditions, as well as record experiences and individually prepare suitable treatment procedures.
On the other hand a scientific focus, where the students will gain an extensive interdisciplinary overview of available methods and possibilities and acquire the ability to scientifically handle methods and their principles in photonic sciences. The post-graduate education is targeted towards alumni and graduates of all higher education professions involved into research, development and clinical application of laser medicine, not only in aesthetic medicine. Access prerequisites are a state-approved university degree with professional qualification in human medicine.
After having finished the post-graduate education, students will have interdisciplinary in-depth knowledge and skills across the area of applied and scientific photonic medicine.The study program is intended to lead to the academic M.Sc. degree that will be presented by Greifswald University Medicine after completion of the full module program. On the basis of inter-university agreements with partner institutions abroad and in appropriate cases M.Sc. degrees can be presented by Greifswald University Medicine in shared academic sovereignty as bridging or double degree, together with the partner institution/university abroad on an equal footing. POISON is the international incharge of the programme for conducting the programme in english language for the non-german speaking world.
