Massachusetts General Hospital Dermatology Case Conference Lecture Series

Live-stream September, 2022 – June 2023

In response to the high demand of requests for Dermatology education and lectures from our generalist colleagues, the faculty of the MGH Dermatology Department provide a weekly interactive case conference for physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants on the basic triage and management of common conditions affecting the skin, hair and nails.

We will cover hot topics such as updates in skin cancer, eczema and psoriasis, pediatric dermatology, contact allergies, urgent and emergent dermatologic conditions, hair disorders, cosmetics, and telemedicine. Participants in this course will be taught the tools to interface more efficiently with dermatologists and manage basic dermatologic problems for their patients. They can also bring their cases and questions on skin conditions affecting their practice and receive guidance.

Attendees will receive a Zoom link to watch this live lecture series ahead of the event date.
