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.
