KEY POINTS ABOUT OUR ACADEMY
When Dr. Doran founded her school to fill a void in quality skin care education, she named it International Skin Beauty Academy, also known as International Training Academy. After many years of careful research, Dr. Doran has developed a number of outstanding skincare treatments, including the famous Age-Control Facial™, which she passes on to her students. Together with a group of highly qualified, well educated, intelligent, and extremely motivated instructors, whom she personally trained, Dr. Doran developed an extremely successful esthetics program.
The Academy has also been dubbed the “School of Second Chances” for allowing women and men to finally pursue their passion and build a successful career. The students have come from near and far – both literally and metaphorically! We have trained women from almost 30 countries and are used to students driving from Indiana and Wisconsin to attend classes. Students from other parts of the country – North Dakota, Arkansas, Virginia, Iowa and Florida – have also chosen to move to Illinois to learn at the Academy. The list of current and former students includes licensed physicians, registered nurses, licensed estheticians, cosmetologists, and massage therapists.
After establishing its reputation as one of the best skin care schools in the country, and changing a multitude of lives for the better, we were ready to grow further and take it to the next level. The idea for the new direction came to Dr. Doran after she started attending Chicago Dermatological Society meetings and round-tables at Rush and Cook County hospitals. Many hospitals and doctors are looking and struggling to find well-trained employees who can perform a variety of functions at their practices.
Dr. Doran realized that training in both Medical Esthetics and Medical Assisting would be a unique opportunity for future success. Each profession itself has potential to earn a great living. The combination would not only double a graduate’s income and give benefits; it would also make a person indispensable to the medical office and their team. The Academy’s outstanding medical programs include: Administrative and Clinical Medical Assisting, EKG, Phlebotomy, and Massage Therapy.
