International Dermoscopy Conference Winchester Guildhall 12/13 June 2020-speakers announced-THE WORLD’S BEST!

International Dermoscopy Conference 12/13 June 2020, Winchester.

I am delighted to announce that, in my role as a UK board member of the International Dermoscopy Society, and with the collaboration of colleagues, I have organised a 2 day skin cancer diagnostics training conference in the heart of southern England with 6 of the world’s top dermatoscopy/dermoscopy teachers. To the best of my knowledge, this is the first 2 day conference of this kind held in Britain with 6 top international speakers.

This conference will be suitable for qualified or trainee dermatologists, plastic surgeons, GPSIs, GPs, specialist and practice nurses, occupational health and elderly care doctors, general physicians, oncologists and any health care professional whose work involves seeing patients who are concerned about skin lesions.

Our world-class faculty will include Professor Giuseppe Argenziano of Naples, Italy, Professor Harald Kittler of Vienna, Austria, Professor Luc Thomas of Lyon, France, Professor Bengu Nisa Akay of Ankara, Turkey, Professor Cliff Rosendahl of Brisbane, Australia, and Associate Lecturer Dr Agata Bulinska from Poland. All of these dear friends are distinguished researchers and teachers who have between them published hundreds of papers in peer review journals and travel the world teaching skin lesion diagnostics. All are inspiring teachers and I am incredibly honoured that they have agreed to teach in Winchester, England.

The venue is the impressive Winchester Guildhall, at the centre of the picturesque old city near the famous cathedral and 2 or 3 minutes walk from many excellent restaurants and hotels. 15 minutes by direct train from Southampton airport (flights from many UK and Irish destinations and continental airports such as Paris, Amsterdam, Dusseldorf, Geneva, Bordeaux, Verona and others.) Also 1 hour by frequent train from London Waterloo, 90 minutes by coach from Heathrow and 1 hour 40 minutes by train from Gatwick.

The 2 day conference programme (in final preparation) is designed to give a good grounding from beginner to expert level in skin lesion recognition with an emphasis on the well proven technique of dermatoscopy/dermoscopy, in which our presenters are recognised world experts. Ideally delegates will attend both days (highly recommended), but we know how busy people are and so the Friday will be set at a more intermediate level to meet the needs of beginners and those who can only find one day to attend, while the Saturday will be aimed more at an expert level and would suit experienced users more.

Delegates will receive a memory drive with as many PDFs as possible of the presentation plus other learning and teaching material including at least 200 high quality images that can be used for teaching. In view of the skin cancer epidemic, more teachers of skin lesion recognition skills are required and while your own images will always carry more weight, this should act as a library resource for those beginning to teach this vital skill to colleagues .

cost will include refreshments and lunch.

EARLY BIRD £250 for both days or £150 for one day if payment received by 31st November 2019

REGULAR PRICE from 1st December 2019 £300 for both days or £165 for either day.

NB as a goodwill gesture in view of Brexit, all delegates who normally live in mainland Europe, including the whole island of Ireland, Turkey, will pay in Euros, e.g. E250 instead of £250, which is about a 15% discount. Please come, we love you!

It is hoped to put on a social event/drinks and entertainment on Friday evening if a minimum number of delegates indicate on booking that they would like this, a modest additional cost will be involved.

    Jeepers, can you organise a music festival too?! The Stones ‘might’ get on the bill! Great line up.

      I’m making no promises, but Geppi, Harald and Luc play together in a pretty good party rock band called Los Globulos Marrones, see them on YouTube. If we had a crowd and they were asked nicely….
