COURSE INFORMATION

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The North American Clinical Dermatologic Society hosts an educational program with sessions that feature a variety of important topics for the practicing Dermatologists. Sessions will cover the latest update on procedural and medical dermatology with a focus on how this information can be used in an everyday dermatology practice. Excisional surgery with innovative reconstructive repairs for the general dermatologists will be presented and other topics of interest to individual dermatologists will be discussed comparing how dermatologists diagnose and treat patients with similar diagnoses in the United States and in other countries.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

The target audience is the practicing dermatologist and dermatology residents who are interested in updated general medical and procedural dermatology.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this program participants should be able to:

 

  • Identify, compare and contrast Dermatology as it is practiced in the United States and in other countries as it relates to ethical and clinical aspects of treating commonly occurring dermatologic disease such as acne, psoriasis, blistering diseases, eczema, cutaneous neoplasia and skin carcinoma and how it affects different ethnic cultures.

 

  • Identify and distinguish the unique aspects of procedural dermatology that relate to the everyday                                       practice in the United States. At the end of this activity the physician should be able to integrate this information for use in the everyday practice of dermatology in the United States.

 

  • Understand and apply information from the review of medical literature to every day practice as it relates to dermatology. The participant should be able to assess and interpret new information from non-dermatologic literature and translate this information as it applies to common dermatologic diseases.

 

  • Assess patient needs for the use of new biologic agents for dermatologic disease. Evaluate patient needs and requirements for biologic agents and properly use the agents appropriately for a given disorder in individual patients.

 

  • Recall and apply information from other specialties e.g. ophthalmology, radiology and pathology as it relates to dermatology.

 

  • Identify and understand various issues concerned with patient safety and risk management so as to prevent medical errors related to dermatology
