In addition, students will have the opportunity to practice various types of skin biopsy and suturing techniques.
We have every intention of holding our face-to-face workshops as scheduled, but due to unforeseen circumstances that may arise, please ensure that any travel/accommodation bookings you make are fully flexible and refundable. It is our preference that students attend workshops face-to-face however we have developed an online version. If you have extenuating circumstances surrounding workshop attendance please contact us to discuss this alternative option.
Clinical Case Studies
In all of our courses participants have the opportunity to respond to authentic clinic case studies and challenge yourself to provide a diagnosis and first-step management plan on the clinical information and dermoscopic images.
