The students at The Skin Institute have the rare opportunity to interact with and shadow Dr. BCK Patel, a world-renowned specialist in reconstructive facial plastic surgery. Dr. Patel is chief of oculoplasty at the University of Utah Medical Center and at the prestigious John Moran Eye Center located in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Students assist Dr. Patel by prepping patients for injections and laser treatments. They enjoy listening to him as he consults with patients regarding their concerns and anti-aging needs. Because he is a teaching professor, he enjoys sharing his experience and knowledge with our students. Physicians from all over the world travel to Salt Lake City to learn new methods from Dr. Patel. It is a rare privilege for the students at The Skin Institute to have personal access to him.
Upon graduation, students can highlight on their resume that they have valuable experience assisting in a medical esthetic clinic.
