About IAT

The International Association of Trichologists (IAT) is a non-profit corporation founded in California in 1974 to promote the study, research and legitimate practice in all aspects of the treatment and care of the human hair and scalp in health and disease.

The trichology course was developed at the University of Southern California during 1974-75 under the guidance of trichologist David Salinger. The course was designed as a home-study (correspondence) course and, additionally, forty hours of clinical training must be undertaken under the supervision of an IAT-approved trichologist. Students can presently undertake clinical training in Australia, India, Brazil, the U.S.A., Canada, Kenya, the United Arab Emirates and the U.K. Online lectures are also included. The course has been translated into Russian, Portuguese and Spanish.
