					                   Anti-Aging Medicine Specialization

        with the World Society of Anti-Aging Medicine’s fellowship in Anti-aging Medicine


The Anti-Aging Medicine Specialization (AAMS) is a fellowship organised by the World Society of Anti-aging Medicine
(WOSAAM, 6500 physicians) . The AAMS is a continuous course, repeated every two years that you can join at any
of the six seminars (modules) of 6 days. It provides an international diploma in Anti-aging Medicine to those who
completed the AAMS program. As each seminar/module is separate, participants can obtain, next to the global
diploma for the whole AAMS, a separate certificate of attendance for each seminar (module) they attend, and if they
pass a separate exam for it, a certificate in competence.


All the important topics of anti-aging medicine are discussed and thoroughly presented with many practical tips for
 your practice and the necessary scientific evidence. For more information on the different modules in this program,
please consult the detailed program attached.

 Examples of topics are:

 • Senescence                         • Positive psychological attitudes    • Diet improvement
 • The longest life spans             • Lifestyle improvement               • Efficient nutritional therapies
 • Genetic typing testing             • Sleep optimization                  • Safe hormone therapies
 • Exercise                           • Daylight/darkness optimization      • Stem cell therapies
 • Environmental health medicine      • Digestion improvement               • and many other crucial topics

 Aims of the Anti-aging medicine specialization:
 - provide practical information to physicians on how to efficiently and safely practice anti-aging medicine
 - provide university level courses with complete theoretical and practical information on each important topic
    of anti-aging medicine
 - provide certificates and a diploma that attest the attendance of a physician to the courses and his competence.

 The fellowship consists of six 6-day seminars (3 days taught courses and 3 days self-learning by DVD). On
 request, a larger part of the courses can be followed at home or in the office through self-learning with DVD as
 the whole course is videotaped.

 Licensed physicians may attend the full 2-year program. Other health-professionals may attend after request and
 acceptance by the scientific committee.
