International Dermoscopy Refresher and Update course, Wednesday 28th November 2018-booking now open


International Dermoscopy Refresher and Update day conference

Wednesday 28.11.2018, Holiday Inn, Cartwright Drive, Fareham, Hampshire PO15 5RJ

This is a dermoscopy  refresher and update course with an international flavour, for dermatologists and all clinicians who regularly use dermoscopy to evaluate suspicious skin lesions in hospital or community.  Basic knowledge is assumed-doctors and specialist nurses wishing to make a start with dermoscopy would be better advised to attend an introductory course.

Stephen Hayes, Catriona Henderson and Birgit Pees are keen dermoscopists with over 50 years combined clinical experience, who have taught an annual dermoscopy course in Fareham since 2011. This November, we are delighted to welcome Professor Luc Thomas from the University of Lyons, France, one of the most published and respected authorities in world dermoscopy. He specialises in skin cancer with a particular interest in nail unit disease. He has agreed to present on the dermoscopy of pigmented and non pigmented nail unit and foot lesions, also to briefly discuss the use of dermoscopy in France and teach us on some didactic and challenging cases from his practice in Lyons.

All presentations will be richly illustrated with many dermoscopic cases studies. It is hoped to make PDFs of presentations with images available to delegates for private study, subject to permissions.
