Will I be able to provide these services immediately after taking the course?
Yes, in fact, we recommend that you start right away so that you can immediately incorporate your new knowledge base into your practice. Please note that nurses require a doctors order before they are able to inject Botox, Fillers or sclerotherapy. Please note that these courses are intended for medical professionals who are willing to prepare well and are fast at absorbing information – you will learn a lot in a short period of time!
Are the staff available to answer questions after the course?
Yes, they are available by phone or email and will attempt to assist you with any questions that you may have regarding injections, assessment or business. If significant coaching is required, then you will be offered a package of coaching sessions by 30 minute segments.
Can nurses provide treatment like Botox or Fillers without a doctor's or nurse practitioner’s order?
No, a nurse must have a Canadian physician or NP's order to provide any injections in every province. The doctor however only has to see the patient at the beginning of therapy to outline the treatment plan and provide informed consent. After that, he/she may delegate the actual injections to a nurse. A new consultation is required when there is a change in the patient’s status eg. New diagnosis of cancer, or one year has elapsed.
I am a doctor – should I bring my nurse with me?
Yes, bringing your nurse would be of great benefit. As a physician, you will be able to delegate many of the procedures, plus the nurse will learn from the source how to organize the clients, order supplies, give preparatory history and physicals and grow your business much faster (and often more efficiently) than you could by yourself.
I am a nurse – should I bring my doctor with me?
If a nurse is planning to provide Botox and Fillers or sclerotherapy and the doctor has no experience with them, then the doctor needs to attend the course. Not only does the doctor need to understand and appropriately plan the treatments, he or she cannot provide informed consent or delegate a procedure that he/she is not familiar with.
If, on the other hand, the physician is an experienced injector, then he/she is not required to attend this course, unless of course, he/she wishes to!
What about my clinic manager?
We would be happy to invite your clinic managers to register for the Business course.
Are there any office materials provided with the course?
Yes, Martin's Training Centre has spent years perfecting charts for various treatments. In the effort to provide you with all the tools that you need to succeed, they have made all of the charts, FAQ information sheets, before and after pamphlets, inventory control sheets and much more available to you as part of your package in each course.
I am a doctor in Ontario – what is this about changing scope of practice?
The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario has created a process
by which physicians may add new areas to their "scope of practice".
The requisite application form is available on the College’s website -
In addition, you will need to call the College to ask for a “mandatory
questionnaire”. This document must be submitted by you in addition to the Proof
of Personal Record of training which we will provide for you after completing
the course. Prior to engaging in our training, you should consult with the
College about approval for changes to scope of practice or adding new
procedures to your practice to ensure that you will be eligible to perform
these procedures when you complete our training.
I am a licensed doctor in Canada - will the CMPA cover me?
Yes, if you are covered by the CMPA for family practice, emergency, or obstetrics, you are automatically covered for botox, fillers, sclerotherapy and most lasers. It will NOT cover you for IPL (which is a form of light treatment) or for resurfacing treatments. We will discuss the details of this during the business portion of the course.
I am an International Medical Graduate - can I take these courses?
Yes, absolutely, you can take the courses, but just like a nurse, you will require a Canadian-licensed doctor or nurse practitioner’s order to inject botox, fillers or sclerotherapy solutions.
Do the courses satisfy medical and nursing college requirements?
Although we offer courses in keeping with the training requirements for the respective Colleges, all requests regarding change to scope of practice and any additional training requirements to allow members to perform new procedures are considered by the College on a case-specific basis. Accordingly, prior to engaging in our training, you should consult with your College about approval for changes to scope of practice or adding new procedures to your practice, to ensure that you will be eligible to perform these procedures when you complete our training.
Does the Doctor or Nurse Pracitioner who is delegating the procedure have to be in the building?
In Canada, this varies by the province. The answer in Ontario and most other provinces is "No, the doctor does not have to be present". The answer in Nova Scotia is "Yes, the doctor must be in the building".
