 Course Description Contents 

In response to feedback from previous participants, this year's review will again emphasize practical and interactive sessions, with many opportunities for in-depth discussion and direct audience participation. The most up-to-date information on skin therapeutics will be covered during the course, and there will be a session highlighting important and effective nonprescription over-the-counter topical treatments. Two case-based panel discussions will explore the latest therapeutic approaches to two of the most common problems encountered in dermatology: skin cancer and atopic dermatitis. A broad range of other dermatologic topics will also be reviewed. Over the last two years, the presentation of actual patients has been one of the most popular components of this course, and once again patients with both common and challenging skin problems will be in attendance to test your dermatologic skills.

This year's program will also feature a pre- and post-course knowledge assessment and case challenge that is based on the course curriculum and delivered via the World Wide Web for home study. Access to these self-assessment modules is included with the registration tuition. Please remember to include your email address when registering for the main course.

 Course Objectives Contents 

Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  1. Describe the appropriate use of new drugs and therapies in dermatology.
  2. Recommend useful nonprescription over-the-counter treatments for a variety of skin disorders.
  3. More effectively recognize and manage a wide range of the most common skin complaints that are encountered in family practice, including skin cancer, atopic eczema, psoriasis, alopecia, hirsutism, acne, and head lice.
  4. Recognize the important cutaneous signs that may be present in patients with connective disease and HIV infection.
  5. Recognize and manage common dermatoses that occur on the nails, penis, and oral mucosa.
