Course Description:
There is an acute shortage of dermatologists in the United States. Dermatologists are shifting away from medical dermatology with many now focusing on cosmetic and oncologic procedures. Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners are rapidly becoming the medical dermatology providers as are primary care physicians. Medical and basic dermatologic surgery procedures have been identified as high priority in several needs assessment surveys for CME.

Several mini-symposia, focusing on the diagnosis and management of common skin problems likely to be encountered by providers will be presented by distinguished faculty.

Interactive workshops have been designed in this program to develop your dermatologic procedural skills, and challenge your diagnostic acumen.

Clinical Skills An interactive session designed to increase the participants’ ability to recognize and treat common skin disorders. Our most popular workshop!
