 Course Description Contents 

In response to feedback from previous participants, this year’s review will be more interactive than ever before, with greater opportunities for in-depth discussion and direct audience participation. The most up-to-date information on skin therapeutics and lasers will be covered during the course, and there will be a special session highlighting practical office techniques. Two case-based panel discussions will explore the latest therapeutic approaches to two of the most common problems encountered in dermatology: acne and psoriasis. 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 diagnostic and therapeutic skills.

New to this year’s program will be 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.

 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. Better recognize and manage a wide range of skin complaints that are commonly encountered in family practice.
  3. Become familiar with basic office techniques.
  4. Recognize the signs of serious drug eruptions in children, as well as disorders with general medical implications.
  5. Become familiar with the dermatologic indications for laser therapy.
  6. Utilize the Internet to test your clinical skills in dermatology.
