This two-day course has been designed to provide enhanced knowledge and skills in the area of dermatology for practicing family physicians and primary care providers.

Description

This two-day course has been designed to provide enhanced knowledge and skills in the area of dermatology for practicing family physicians and primary care providers. Primary care providers need information on the diagnosis and management of common skin disorders, exposure to the features of serious skin diseases, and an appreciation of a larger scope of clinical presentations of skin cancer. Presentations, focusing on the most common skin disorders seen in primary care, will provide physicians valuable information on diagnosis and treatment of many dermatologic conditions. Registrants will have the opportunity to engage in conversation with the experts and will have an opportunity to participate in a hands-on skills workshop performing common skin procedures using pigs’ feet.
