Thursday, November 9 – Sunday, November 12, 2017
Course directors are Ken Gross, M.D., Howard Steinman, M.D., Carlos Garcia, M.D. and Alex Lutz, B.S. Alex directs the Mohs Technician training session and is assisted by Rick Wolf, LPN as Laboratory Co-Director.
This educational session will be held at the DoubleTree Hotel San Diego, Mission Valley in San Diego, California. Our group room block is expected to fill completely, so reservations should be secured as soon as possible. Hotel cut-off date is October 21.
First introduced in 1995, this four-day annual course focuses on the Mohs surgery as the treatment of choice for certain basal and squamous cell carcinomas and other cutaneous malignancies. A wide variety of Mohs procedural and practice topics will be discussed, with ample time for questions and answers and informal discussion with faculty members throughout the meeting. Dermatologists and other specialists interested in performing this highly- effective treatment for skin cancer will benefit from this important “need to know” material such as Mohs indications, wound mapping, normal skin-BCC-SCC-unusual tumor histopathology, Mohs surgical pearls, coding and reimbursement, laboratory supervision, CLIA-OSHA consideration, and other vital information.
Participants will divide their instructional time between lectures, histopathology presentations, small group discussions, and independent or “team” review of Mohs cases in the microscope lab.
