Feel like you need to see it a few more times before you understand it?
We created the DCCM™ Academy fellowship program to give our students the benefit of consistent clinical exposure to aesthetic treatment options.
From a review of anatomy, to treatment patterns, to injecting do's and don'ts, the fellowship program has got you covered!
For the next 6 months you will have the opportunity to watch our providers perform treatments on our patients and get a first hand look at how we run our office. You will have the freedom to ask questions for the entire day, learn tips and tricks that can help you become a better injector, and get a better idea of the range of cosmetic treatments we offer and their indications.
As a DCCM™ Academy Fellow, you will receive 2 full shadow days with our providers at DCCM™. Shadow days are from 10:30am until 4:30pm and include time for you to debrief and ask any lingering questions once the day is over.

How do I schedule my appointment?
DCCM™ Academy has partnered with Calendly to give you access to Fellowship observation days availability as well as online booking. Please use the link below to check for AVAILABILITY of your desired dates. Please note: you will not be able to book your preferred day via this link, you MUST enroll via Teachable before scheduling your observation days. Those who schedule via Calendly without enrolling via Teachable will have their booking cancelled without notice and have their attendance refused on the day scheduled.
What is the minimum commitment for fellowship?
Fellowships have a 6 month minimum commitment. This is to ensure you have enough opportunities to build a relationship with our providers and get the most out of this opportunity. We want to be able to follow your journey and ensure you have enough available sessions to followup with any questions you may have.
When will payments be due?
DCCM™ Fellows will make one payment upfront for the full cost of the program for 6 months; $6,000 (a $9,000 value). After the mandatory 6 month minimum has been completed, students can continue their fellowship on a month to month basis for $1,000 per month (a $1,500 value). Fellows also have the added benefit of exclusive one-on-one observation days as well as more flexibility and availability when it comes to booking. Fellows who have not completed the 6 month minimum commitment may NOT enroll in the month-to-month payment option. We also have a payment plan that spreads the full cost of the fellowship out over the first three months of the program, three payments of $2,000.00. Fellows who have not completed the 6 month commitment are welcome to enroll in this option.
Do unused Fellowship observation days roll over?
Unfortunately, Fellowship observation days cannot roll over. We block time in our schedule so that we can meet with each of you and give you the time you deserve to answer all of your questions thoroughly.
How long before my scheduled meeting do I have to reschedule?
If you need to reschedule your scheduled observation day we ask that you give us at least 48 hours notice by phone or by email so that we have time to offer your spot to another student.
