Each submitted patient must have the following documents:
– assessment and treatment plan
– treatment administration documentation
– follow-up treatment documents and management of complications (if applicable)
– photos
▪️ before treatment
▪️ Immediately after treatment (only for dermal filler treatments or if there is a development of immediate complications)

Part 3: Board Certification OSCE examination

The Board Certification OSCE examination is held for students who have completed the first two parts of Step 3 (submitting patients and articles review) and are ready to receive the Board Certification designation. The Board Certification exam takes place every 1 to 2 months and students are supposed to reserve a spot in advance.
This exam includes 4 rooms conducted virtually by CBAM faculty head office for all the approved applicants. Here is the list of rooms:

  • Injectables room
  • Anatomy room
  • Laser room
  • Cosmetic dermatology room



In each room, the faculty will discuss some cases with the applicants. The applicant will receive a mark based on their performance in each room. In order to pass the exam, the applicant is required to receive at least 75% overall for all 4 rooms and also a minimum mark of 70% for each individual room. If the applicant fails the exam (in case the overall mark is less than 75% or the mark of either of the rooms is less than 70%), the whole exam needs to be repeated and there is an additional fee for retaking the exam.

After completing the above 3 parts, the applicant will be awarded the designation of Board Certified in Aesthetic medicine and their name will be on a page on CBAM website and can be searched by colleagues and patients. (see a sample of this page).

Here is also a sample of certificate of Board Certified in Aesthetic Medicine.
