Course Description:
This three-day course will provide the attendee with a multidisciplinary review of standard of care management practices and state-of-the-art advances in the care of the patient with cutaneous melanoma. The first day will focus on epidemiology, prevention, pathology, surgical treatment and advances in systemic therapy for patients with melanoma. There will be breakout sessions focused on surgery, medical oncology and introduction to dermoscopy. The last two days are an in-depth immersion into dermoscopy for imaging of melanocytic and nonmelanocytic skin lesions. Participants will develop practical skills that will enable them to be more comfortable approaching patients with atypical skin lesions. This dermoscopy section is primarily targeted to clinicians, but NPs/PAs and residents with a focus on this field will find it valuable as well.

Course Objectives:
• Apply pattern analysis and simple algorithms for the identification of skin neoplasms.
• Identify and differentiate melanocytic from non-melanocytic lesions using dermoscopy.

• Evaluate the efficacy and risks of sunscreens, vitamin D, and tanning.
• Describe and compare biopsy techniques and indications.
• Describe the side effects of therapy for advanced melanoma.
• Evaluate the important aspects of pathology reports for melanoma and identify the relevant prognostic information.
• Cite the pros/cons and rational for sentinel lymph node biopsy in primary cutaneous melanoma.
• List some of the management options for advanced melanoma.
