The Conference
Who Should Attend

Clinicians and healthcare professionals with a basic understanding of dermoscopic structures as well as experts in dermoscopy keen on gaining a better understanding of dermoscopic criteria and diagnostic decision making will find this course valuable. 

To Submit Cases for Expert Evaluation

After registering for the course, you will receive a confirmation email which will include a link to the upload portal with the details on case submission. Registrants are not required to submit cases in order to participate.


For those participants interested in submitting cases for evaluation, please provide:

1.     A brief history of the lesion

2.     Clinical and dermoscopy image

3.     Histopathology diagnosis of lesion



Reasons to Participate








Developing a personal portfolio of lesions encountered in your patient population is a critical part of your dermoscopy toolbox. It is the challenging and interesting cases encountered and biopsies performed that are typically remembered best.


One of the most effective ways to study the clinical morphology of a lesion is through dermoscopy. What better way to advance your skills in dermoscopy than to learn from experts and to discuss the nuances involved in diagnosing and managing cases where the dermoscopic morphology is unraveled and the care strategy identified?
