Online Practical Workshops
Our brand new online workshops provide the same qualifications as our previously run face-to-face one day hands on seminars. Being interactive and practical in their nature, these workshops will focus on diagnosis and management of advanced skin cancers and benign and pre-cancerous lesions. Participants will explore the use of dermoscopy and how to conduct a full skin check using diagnostic algorithms. In addition, students will have the opportunity to practice various types of skin biopsy and suturing techniques. Each student’s work will be closely examined and assessed to provide the lecturer with insight into their students’ learning process. Suture practice kits are included in the course fee and will be delivered to our students during the course.
Attend live online webinars and participate in open discussion on diagnosis and management direct with our expert Dermatologists
