Comment: This is a three-day program for dermatologists, oncologists, physicians in internal medicine, family practice and general practice. The first day is an update on melanoma epidemiology, prevention, pathology, radiologic imaging for diagnosis, and treatment. It focuses on cutting-edge information that brings new therapy from the basic science arena. The last two days are an in-depth immersion into dermoscopy. The information will target both the novice and experienced dermoscopist. It will include a comprehensive exposure to dermoscopic evaluation of melanocytic and nonmelanocytic lesions. Participants will develop practical skills that will enable them to be more comfortable approaching patients with atypical skin lesions. This course is primarily targeted to clinicians, but educators and residents will find it valuable as a springboard to develop dermoscopy training programs.
