This three-day course will provide the attendee with 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 will focus on epidemiology, prevention, pathology, advances in genomics, 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 will develop practical skills that will enable them to be more comfortable approaching patients with atypical skin lesions. This dermoscopy section is primarily targeted to clinicians, but educators and residents will find it valuable as a springboard to develop dermoscopy training programs.
The intended audience is dermatologists, surgeons, oncologists, physicians in internal medicine, family practice, and general practice.
