The School of Trichology is a 3+3-day intensive course covering the key concepts in Trichology. The course is split into Basic Level (3 days) and Advanced Level (3 days). Students can enrol in either level, or elect to complete both together (6 days total).

The School of Trichology provides students with a comprehensive grounding in the core tenets of Trichology:

        • Anatomy and physiology fundamentals
        • Commonly seen conditions
        • Videodermatoscopy and Microscopy in Polarized Light
        • Cosmetology
        • Scalp microbiome
        • Essential Oils in Trichology

The course is appropriate for both medical doctors and trichology technicians. Students who completed the School of Trichology in previous years are eligible to attend the Advanced Course.

The School of Trichology is held in our home city of Florence, Italy, at the beautiful and historic Villa la Stella in the Florentine hills.

The full program for 2024 is currently being confirmed and will be released soon.
