2017 Skin Cancer Summit and Masterclasses
It is my great pleasure to invite you to join me and many colleagues at the 2017 Skin Cancer Summit and Masterclasses. Building on many years of successful meetings, this year we are delighted to bring you a range of local, national and international speakers.
We offer two days of outstanding masterclass instruction on skin cancer diagnosis and skin cancer treatment. The masterclasses are designed to provide specific, direct and relevant “do it this way” advice that is immediately translatable into your practice.
The summit brings together several leaders in the field. Their brief is to bring us all up to speed with the latest (and greatest) thinking, and development in skin cancer. They will also be looking into the future to tell us what they see coming over the horizon for best-practice in skin cancer in Australia and globally.
I look forward to meeting old friends, and making new friends, in Brisbane later in 2017.
