Our 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, advanced repairs, cryotherapy 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.
