Dermatologic Surgery: Focus on Skin Cancer
May 27, 2016 @ 6:15 am - May 29, 2016 @ 12:45 pm
Registration – Elective Microscope Lab Open (Laboratory Faculty): Tuesday, May 24th, 3:00-7:00pm
This Memorial Day Weekend, attendees of Dermatologic Surgery: Focus on Skin Cancer will participate in an exciting educational program, within the “jewel box” atmosphere of coastal Orange County, California. Adjacent to the hotel, within walking distance, is Fashion Island, an exquisite open-air shopping experience, featuring beautiful architectural details, tranquil fountains, and an assortment of gourmet and pampering activities to maximize the vacation feel of the destination.
Other nearby leisure pursuits include the quaint Balboa Island, Corona del Mar, Catalina Island, Disneyland, and Laguna Beach – plus five area golf courses, peaceful hiking trails, sparkling tide pools and other natural sanctuaries, and spectacular harbor cruises.
Meeting directors have incorporated new topics that highlight the latest advances in skin cancer diagnosis and treatment, comprehensive literature reviews, and stimulating panel discussions covering novel reconstruction approaches, melanoma treatment options, and the management of challenging non-melanoma tumors. Other topics address changing practice dynamics for derm surgeons.
Elective laboratory microscope sessions on Thursday, Friday and Saturday afternoons feature both challenging Mohs cases and other “unknown” tumors presented by dermatopathologists on faculty. Face-to-face small group sessions will add another valuable dimension to these dermatopathology exercises.
Following participation in this activity, physician attendees should be able to:
- Recognize and diagnose skin cancer with greater accuracy.
- Broaden their expertise in the medical and surgical treatment of skin cancer.
- Refine their repertoire of closure techniques as appropriate to a wide range of surgical defects.
- Expand their knowledge and utilization of melanoma treatment options.
