Renowned “Celebrity” Physician Trainers: Empire works directly with more than 40 of the nation’s recognized top Plastic Surgeons, Dermatologists, Pain Management Physicians, Internal Medicine, and many other top of their field physicians who are recognized for their specialty excellence in their communities as the best, go-to physician practitioners. Learning something new, especially highly complex and technical procedures that carry a level of risk for the patient, requires learning from physicians who have the experience, knowledge, and the ability to effectively teach. Unlike many institutions, our training courses are NOT taught by only a few instructors or non-physicians. Instead, Empire provides participants with a variety of highly credentialed, highly successful “Physician Only” instructors who are practice owners who have achieved incredible practice success.

Specialized Training Options: Empire is the only training organization to offer additional, more “specialized” options for training than any other educational organization. In addition to the more than 700 live workshops offered each year around the country at resort hotels, Empire is proud to offer training at our state of the art “Centers of Excellence” training centers, also located throughout the United States. The instructors are “celebrity” status physician trainers. Participants enjoy very personalized training as these workshops are limited to 8 participants. Empire offers a full complement of course options for those seeking specialized training – everything from specialized VIP training, In-Office Preceptorship, Shadow Preceptorship, “Meet the Experts” Aesthetic Consortium Series, and the Empire’s annual signature event – the Empire-Aesthetics-Meeting™ (EAM20™). “Methods of Training.” These are just a few examples of how training with Empire gives you the most flexibility in your training decision.

A Word about our competition.

For one, we never bash our competition as is done so commonly in the industry. WE welcome the competition, in fact as the old adage goes, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,“

What makes Empire unique and different is that we guarantee our services and we have the resources to provide the quality training that we do. It takes more than a fancy website to provide the level of training that has been sought after for 21 years.

Empire Philantropy

We care, we support

Peru Christmas Charitable Fund.

empire philantropy

In 2019, Empire Medical Training and Rx Medical Web launched a new annual charity to support many of the impoverished families living in small villages in PERU. Empire will continue this support each year during Christmas time and plan to extend this support on a regular basis throughout the year as well. It is often difficult to begin a project like this for anyone, sometimes it’s best to just begin somewhere and help. We acknowledge that our charity is not a recognized, charitable organization for which your tax dollars may be deducted, however, our dollars are still helping this group of people. Soon enough, we will have the legal structure and entity so that our supporters are able to properly deduct their donations. In the meantime, we thank you for helping us bring a very happy time last year and for the years to come to these families in PERU. Last year this group of families was very surprised and happy for this event we provided. They are looking forward to a similar experience, and our team will make sure this happens.

For last year’s contribution, we would like to thank all the donors to our charity. Our supporters are mostly Empire Medical Training workshop attendees, and we truly appreciate their generosity and caring nature.

In addition, Empire recognizes the outstanding financial support from our friend and donor, Thomas Zazarino for his generous contribution to the Per Christmas Charitable Fund. Empire also recognizes Tom Mastanduano from Master Pharm of New York for his generosity.

In Peru, Christmas is fairly similar to celebrations held in the United States and Europe, when many families get together, celebrate and exchange gifts. Families generally eat turnkey and east Pane-ton (a cake/bread filled with fruits) and drink hot chocolate. In the week preceding Christmas, it is also popular for communities, churches or charitable organization to organize “Chocolatadas” where people who make a Christmas gesture to poor children and families by offering them a cup of hot chocolate, food and perhaps small gifts.
