The 2014 Advanced Dermatology for Primary Care conference was a great success. We hope you will be able to join us for our next Advanced Derm conference in the fall of 2016.

Overview

Advanced Dermatology for Primary Care is designed for the non-dermatologist and will focus on practical office dermatology. Primary care physicians, nurses, physician assistants and other medical professionals with an interest in dermatology are encouraged to attend. Faculty will present a wide spectrum of common dermatological problems and emphasize effective management. Ample opportunity will be given for questions during the lectures and at the end of each session.

Two intensive hands-on workshops featuring biopsy, excision, simple repairs, cryosurgery and electrocautery techniques will take place on Sunday morning. Participants will be expected to bring some surgical instruments. More detailed information will be provided upon receipt of your registration.

Exhibitors will be present at this conference.
