All attendees will be asked to provide a negative COVID test result (Rapid Antigen or PCR) upon arrival at Registration. The test must be taken no more than 2 days before the check-in date of the meeting. PCR Testing is more sensitive and is preferred, but Rapid Antigen Testing (including self-testing kits) will be accepted.

Due to the safety measure taken above, masks will be optional for those in attendance, as long as we remain in compliance with State and local regulations.


San Diego county currently does not require events and gatherings to enforce social distancing nor requires the use of face masks for those who have been vaccinated.

We continue to closely monitor recommended COVID-19 safety precautions from local and International health authorities, and encourage our guests and Team Members to do the same. The wellbeing of our guests and Team Members is our highest priority, and we remain diligent in our commitment to provide a safe, hospitable environment for all who enter our doors.

2021 Fundamentals of Mohs Surgery for Physicians and Mohs Technicians

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, and BJ Villarreal as Laboratory Co-Directors.

Fundamental of Mohs Surgery Course Background

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.
