Dermatology Update

Welcome to the 5th Doctors Updates Dermatology Section Meeting! Following the success of the inaugural meeting in Junary 2012, we have great pleasure in inviting you to the fifth meeting of its kind in Val d’Isere, where we will enjoy a stimulating programme of CME in the breathtaking surroundings of one of the finest alpine skiing resorts in the word. Meetings will be held from 0800 – 0930 and 1630 – 1930, with the opportunity to take in some alpine air in between. CME points will be applied for once the programme is confirmed; it is anticipated that ~15 points will be accorded for the meeting.

We also would like to run a session entitled ‘A clinical case which has changed my practice’ and would invite submissions from interested parties. In addition to the above programme, an appealing selection of generic topics will be covered, including revalidation, child protection, current practice in needlestick injuries and clinical supervision tools. The evening lecture series, covering topics of broader medical interest will also be included.

The Update

This dermatology update is part of the Doctorsupdates annual, multidisciplinary conference, a real ‘festival of medicine’. The provisional outline of topics to be addressed at this meeting will be found on the Programme page. The scientific sessions, including workshops will take place at the Henri Oreiller Congress Centre, situated within a few minutes walk from the hotels and sorrounding apartments. Apart from invited faculty we heavily rely on voluntary contributions as far as the presentations are concerned and we welcome anyone who can help in this respect.
