PROGRAM

 

The 2018 program features two days of masterclasses followed by a two-day Summit, offering you the unique opportunity to hear from the world’s leading experts, delivering the latest clinical content on skin cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment. The masterclasses will allow you to delve deeply into a particular skin cancer area and learn about a variety of topics which will not all be covered in the Summit. Don't miss the opportunity to interact more closely with the presenters in a smaller group format to help improve your clinical practice. 

As much as we love to learn, we also like to have fun. The Summit will offer various opportunities to exchange your thoughts with peers and the presenters, all sharing an interest in and passion for skin cancer medicine.
