Fundamentals of Mohs Surgery Course

2024 Fundamentals Of Mohs Surgery Course – November 14-17, 2024

The primary goal of The Fundamentals of Mohs Surgery course is improved patient care in the treatment of skin cancer using the Mohs technique. To this end, it provides a comprehensive overview of the surgical procedure and related histopathologic interpretation. Because the roles of the Mohs surgeon and technician are critically intertwined in the successful performance of Mohs surgery, technician training is an important component of the Fundamentals course. Technician sessions incorporate both practical laboratory experience and didactic instruction.


Course directors are Carlos A. Garcia, M.D.; Kenneth G. Gross, M.D.; Andrew H. Weinstein, M.D. BJ Villarreal and Larry Ladd Co-Direct the Mohs Technician training session.

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.
