Practical In-Clinic Training

Join us, in person, for our 4 day class with our Certified Trichologists, educators, licensed cosmetologists, Hair Loss Practitioners and Specialists (and may have our Board of Director or physician available for additional training). The goal is to show you as many types of hair and scalp issues as possible while watching an experienced trainer, step by step, in office. We do this by bringing in real clients.

This course is priced at $1,999.

So, what should I expect from the clinical training?

At our most recent Practical In-Clinic Training, we had five instructors and only eight students. We limit the number of students in each class to ensure that they all receive very personal training, designed to fit their needs as a future Trichologist. Our instructors at this particular class included a medical doctor and four Trichologists. Among these instructors, three of them were USTI® Board Members; one is a board certified naturopathic doctor; one a certified master herbalist; one is a world renowned laser & hair loss expert. We also had a celebrity stylist, who is the global creative director of a major hair care company, among our educators.

Although our educators are rotated throughout classes, this is the caliber that you can expect us to deliver for every class.

USTI® arranged for several clients to come in on each of the four days. Students saw Alopecia Areata, pattern baldness, traction alopecia, hormonal hair loss, drug-induced hair loss and a variety of scalp issues. Students and instructors worked together on each client, with the student taking the lead and the instructor by their side should any questions arise.

We delved deep into the business side of the industry: marketing, maintaining a digital presence, press releases, advertisements and more. We discussed the physical set-up of a center – everything from the layout of offices and exam rooms to the equipment needed. Each student had a chance to discuss their own center and what things they personally needed to do to expand business and provide the best care possible for their clients.

In between all of that, we spent time reviewing everything they have learned over the first three courses. After all of our students passed the exam (100% graduation rate!!), we celebrated by going out to dinner!
