Launching New Medical Esthetics Training


New York, NY – July 12, 2022:  Swedish Institute College of Health Sciences in New York City announces the official launch of its new Medical Esthetics Program this month. The program offers a variety of hands-on training programs and workshops. The curriculum is specifically for medical professionals currently working in or transitioning to the medical esthetics field.

This new branch of Swedish Institute is exclusively for licensed medical professionals, including MDs, Dentists, RNs, LPNs, NPs, and PAs (along with certain clinically trained estheticians who meet eligibility requirements) looking to expand their practice into the field of medical esthetics. This opportunity provides a way to put your education to use without giving up your career.

Swedish Institute created the Swedish Institute Medical Esthetics (SIME) in partnership with its sister school, Atelier Esthétique Institute of Esthetics. Atelier Esthetique has been a New York State licensing esthetics school for the past 35 years. This joint program highlights various treatments, including PRP Injecting, laser & IPL therapy, non-surgical face lifts, body sculpting, RF/Microneedling, EPAT, and more. Through this program, practitioners keep up-to-date with patient demands and current with the latest developments in the field.

SIME partnered with several device companies, allowing their students to train on modern equipment. Their partners include Candela Medical for the Nordlys™ Laser Therapy (recently featured on the TODAY Show) and BTL Industries for EMsculpt™ muscle toning and fat removal (featured in Modern Aesthetics, Cosmo, and Elle), among others.

Our Medical Esthetics Training Team

The Medical Esthetics Program Director, Kim Laudati, is an Atelier Esthetique Institute of Esthetics alumna (class of 2008). “I am thrilled to be directing this new program,” Laudati said. “It’s exciting to be leading the way for a whole new generation of esthetics providers.” Ms. Laudati also teaches many of our classes.

The Medical Director, Dr. James Mihalcik oversees the program’s medical components and compliance with NYS laws. Dr. Mihalick is a Yale graduate and former NYU Medical Center Fellow and Chief Resident.

Swedish Institute President and CEO, Michael Bottrill, states, “I couldn’t be prouder of our new Medical Esthetics team who has worked tirelessly to provide an esthetics training program. We are one of the first providers of laser therapy training in New York. We offer twelve certifications upon completion.”

Each of the training modules lasts one to seven days and ranges from under $600 to $6000. For the most updated course schedule, visit the SI Medical Esthetics Program website. You can also contact us at [email protected]
