At ECAMS, we are committed to delivering a comprehensive live model hands-on training experience. However, it is important to acknowledge the inherent uncertainties involved in such training involving live models. The following are potential scenarios that may occur:

-Last minute unavailability of models due to health issues, unsuitability for the scheduled procedures, or other unforeseen reasons.

-Last minute models not attending the training session, or deciding to leave due to discomfort or second thoughts about participating.

While ECAMS makes every effort to prevent these situations, they are sometimes beyond our control, and as such, we cannot assure their complete avoidance. In such instances:

-We will seek alternative arrangements to ensure the continuity and quality of training. Our team will strive to match the original training plan as closely as possible, but exact replication of the planned program cannot be guaranteed.

-Participants in these sessions should be prepared to adapt to these changes. We ask for your understanding and flexibility should any last-minute modifications be necessary.

For those participants who prefer a more predictable training scenario, we recommend choosing the “Bring Your Own Patient” option. This allows for a more controlled training environment and ensures the participant’s specific training needs are met.

For live models participating at our hands-on training

  1. Model selection

     

    ECAMS work with Local Responsible Doctors where our trainings are held in their local facility or clinic. We occasionally offer opportunities for live models to participate in our live-model training sessions.

    Please note that your suitability as a model will be determined by the Local Responsible Doctor and ECAMS contracted trainers.

    The Local Responsible Doctors and the trainer retain the right to limit or restrict model appointments in situations where there are excessive or unreasonable short-notice cancellations or Did Not Attend, or when a patient’s expectations are deemed unrealistic and therefore unsuitable for a training environment.

    ECAMS requires live model to sign a release document prior to your treatment. Please read through the document carefully.

  2. Treatment Fees

    As a live model at our trainings, the Local Responsible Doctor may require you to pay for the treatment fee either at no cost or at a reduced cost.

    This fee will be dealt with directly by the Local Responsible Doctor and it may vary depending on the type of procedure, its location, and other factors related to the treatment.

    Advanced payment may be required to secure your participation for both local and international participating models. On occasion, in order to confirm participation, Local Responsible Doctors may require models to make payments through ECAMS.

    It is imperative to acknowledge that this payment is not intended as a revenue for ECAMS, nor does it denote ECAMS assuming responsibility for the treatment received. Any payments made through ECAMS will be reimbursed to the Local Responsible Doctor responsible for the training procedure.

    In such cases, models may choose to pay for their treatment through cash, credit/debit card, or bank transfer.

    In the event that a surgical or non-surgical procedure must be repeated, whether due to complications or the failure to meet the model’s desired results, the model agrees to bear the cost of the facility, consumables, products, and medical support staff fees at cost for any subsequent procedures required during the next training session.

    The models further understand that in the event of an unforeseen complication arising during a surgical or non-surgical procedure, their safety is of utmost importance, and as a result, the desired results may be compromised.

    Any additional costs resulting from such complications are the sole responsibility of the model. All additional cost should be dealt with directly with Local Responsible Doctor.

  3. Follow up

    The Local Responsible Doctor bears the responsibility for all post-treatment follow-up and aftercare. Participants are advised to consult with the Local Responsible Doctor to obtain necessary follow-up instructions.

    In some instances, the Local Responsible Doctor may coordinate with ECAMS to communicate follow-up details.
