International dermoscopy day conference 28th November 2018

Advance notice:

‘International dermoscopy update and refresher day conference, Wednesday 28th November 2018’

This day refresher and update day conference presented by South Coast Dermoscopy is designed for Dermatologists, GPwSIs, and all clinicians using dermoscopy to evaluate skin lesions. We are delighted to welcome guest teacher Professor Luc Thomas from Lyons, France. Prof Thomas is a board member of the International Dermoscopy Society and the acknowledged world expert on nail unit tumour dermoscopy.

The programme will include dermoscopy of hypomelanotic and other difficult melanomas, the nail unit, diagnostic algorithms, pattern analysis, vessels, mole mapping and monitoring, descriptive (Kittlerian) terminology, insights and highlights from the 5th world dermoscopy congress (June 2018, Greece) and many new cases for interactive discussion.

Early bird price of £220 if booked by 1st June, thereafter £250. Hot lunch in seated restaurant, vegetarian options. Detailed programme to be published after world congress in June-we are all going to the congress in Thessaloniki and expect to gain insights form the world’s top experts on dermoscopy which we will feed back to delegates on this course. 6 hours CPD applied for.  Location Fareham, Hampshire. Details and application form from .

This day conference is not for beginners, but should be of benefit to any clinician who is regularly using dermoscopy and would like to refresh and top up their knowledge and understanding. As well as appealing to dermatologists, it is designed for doctors and specialist skin cancer nurses who have already participated in our annual Integrated Skin Lesion Recognition and Dermoscopy course which we have presented annually at Fareham since 2011. We will present mostly new cases that learners will not have seen before, Professor Thomas’s cases will all be new to us. I believe this is the first time he has presented at a dermoscopy conference in Britain.

If this international dermoscopy conference is a success, as we hope, we plan to repeat it annually or biannually with a different overseas guest speaker each time. Booking is not yet open but interest may be declared, if interested please keep the day free. Further announcements including a timetable and booking form will appear here.

The Holiday Inn, Fareham, is half way between Portsmouth and Southampton, 20 minutes by taxi from Southampton Parkway airport and station (frequent direct trains from London Waterloo) and convenient for the M27.
