Meet Your Trainers
Hello and welcome to Medics Direct. I am Dr. Kate Goldie. When I started my Medical Cosmetics career several years ago I met a lot of people who trained in these treatments but didn't actually go on to have a successful practice. Without clinical or business support or the back-up of peers and colleagues, they found themselves isolated in a competitive industry. That's when I started Medics Direct.
Medics Direct is set up to give you the highest level of training and to give you the clinical and business support needed to launch a successful and flourishing medical cosmetics career. Not only that, you become part of a network of over 200 practitioners, sharing knowledge, experience and ideas. And by continual learning through our free masterclasses you can keep your skills up to date and together we can create an industry with a reputation for clinical excellence, ethical and caring practice and effective results.

"The first year of starting your own facial aesthetics practice, as with any business, can often be the most challenging part. This is why I am so proud of the hundreds of practitioners who have gone on to have flourishing careers and of the Medics Direct trainers and advisors who have helped them get there. It's a continual journey of gaining new skills, experiences and techniques in both clinical practice and business. By forming a network of practitioners that includes everyone from complete beginners to industry experts we are supporting each other onto better practice as well as driving up standards in the industry."
