Board Certified Roadmap – Canadian and US Physicians

Board Certified Aesthetic Practitioner

This designation is for Canadian and US Physicians*

* If you are a Nurse Practitioner (NP), please read this:

Nurse practitioners (NPs) in most provinces in Canada and also some states in USA are able to practice independently. As a result, they are welcome to either select the Board Certified or CAMP designations.

What is the difference?

  • If you select Board Certified designation, you will be evaluated among other physicians:
    • You must submit 25 patients in your portfolio (rather than 20 patients for CAMP)
    • Your final comprehensive MCQ exam contains more challenging questions and also your practical OSCE exam has 4 rooms (Injectables, Anatomy, Laser and Cosmetic dermatology). (CAMP OSCE exam has 3 rooms and excludes Cosmetic dermatology room)
    • Your package price will be slightly higher. (you can check the price of this package on this page)
  • If you select CAMP designation, you will be evaluated among other nurses:


*Out of these 25 patients, 10 of them must be assist and treated by the students independently either in their own practice or under the supervision of CBAM instructors in one of the Semi-Private Practice Days. (CBAM offers Semi-Private Practice Days for the students who registered for the package in one of the designated locations free of charge. The students must provide their own models based on the current models pricing for the products.)
