Course Description

This year's review will highlight a broad range of dermatologic problems and dilemmas that are commonly encountered by primary care physicians. There will be a strong emphasis on audience participation during the small group workshops and panel presentations. For the first time ever there will be live patients to challenge your diagnostic and therapeutic skills. The most up to date information on skin therapeutics will be featured during the course. Dermatologic emergencies and pitfalls will be highlighted this year. Practical workshops will cover psoriasis, over the counter dermatologic products, and fungal infections. A special panel will look at acne. The latest on AIDS will also be presented. Practical approaches to moles, the aging face, drug eruptions, and vulvar dermatoses will round out this year's program. There will be ample opportunities for you to interact with faculty, and you are encouraged to bring along your problem cases for discussion on Sunday afternoon.
