International Hair Course: Another Cycle begins

Biannual Hair Course starts in Toronto 

Yesterday, I had the honor of welcoming physicians into my practice for the Spring session of the International Hair course. Twice per year - in the spring and fall - I conduct a course for physicians interested in learning more about hair loss and hair transplantation.

I enjoy the course a lot and have had the opportunity to meet physicians around the world who are interested in treating hair loss. Some come equipped with great skills already and are hoping to fine tune their skills even more. Some come as relative novices in the field of hair loss and are hoping to develop a solid framework. 

The week is an intensive week of training. Through a series of clinics, surgeries, lectures, workshops, and quizzes, participants have the opportunity to learn about hair loss. 6 clinics, held on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday offer participants the opportunity to see some of the most challenging cases of hair loss.  Two surgeries held on Tuesday and Friday allow participants to observe both modern methods of hair transplantation - FUSS (follicular unit strip surgery) and FUE (follicular unit extraction).  A session is also provided on the use of platelet rich plasma (PRP) in treating hair loss and demonstrations of the technique are provided.

Looking forward to another great week.


Dr. Jeff Donovan is a Canadian and US board certified dermatologist specializing exclusively in hair loss. To schedule a consultation, please call the Vancouver office at 604.283.9299
