One of the main problems in our industry is the lack of proper education for doctors and other health care providers. Medical schools simply do not teach much about hair and scalp disorders. They offer little help and education to those interested in hair loss as a specialty or sub-specialty.
Doctors wishing to learn this specialty often attend short seminars. Afterwards they simply set up a practice and do novitiate work on often unsuspecting patients. This is not a formula for success. In fact, it is just the opposite. It takes more than a few days at a seminar to gain the knowledge and experience required to have a successful hair restoration practice!
In order to help deal with this immense problem, we established the London Hair Restoration Training Academy Limited in 2009. Since then, we have trained over 150 medical specialists and we are now able to make our treatment techniques available across the globe.
