This three-day course provides a multidisciplinary review of standard of care management practices and state-of-the-art advances in care of the patient with cutaneous melanoma. The first day focuses on epidemiology, prevention, pathology, genetic syndromes, advances in genomics, imaging and medical and surgical treatment in association with melanoma.
The last two days are an in-depth immersion into dermoscopy for imaging of melanocytic and non-melanocytic skin lesions, including three breakout sessions. Participants develop practical skills that enable them to be more comfortable approaching patients with atypical skin lesions. This dermoscopy section is primarily targeted to clinicians, but it's also valuable to educators and residents as a springboard to develop dermoscopy training programs.
