Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Manage squamous cell carcinoma , melanoma and rare cancers according to the latest evidence.
  • Use multimedia tools and behavioral science to better address patients concerns.

We will cover the hot topics in both skin cancer and the cosmetic practice of dermatologic surgery. We will get an update on the staging and management of squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. We will also review preliminary guidelines for rare cutaneous cancers such as sebaceous carcinoma and adenexal carcinoma. We will review the use of videos to enhance patient understanding. We will have an in-depth lecture from an expert on behavioral science to help us better interface with our patient population. Finally we have experts in cosmetic dermatologic surgery giving pearls and guidance in regards to resurfacing and their injectible practice.
