Dr. Cockerell and his staff are excited to announce that registration is now open for the 2016 Practical Symposium: Sharpen Your Dermatology, Clinicopathologic and Business Skills conference held in Vail, Colorado August 11-14.
The conference is unique in that it emphasizes clinicopathologic correlation and the working relationship between dermatologists and dermatopathologists in making accurate diagnoses and planning optimal treatment. It also emphasizes how clinicopathologic correlation can guide research, and new drug and device product development within dermatology. It is more important than ever to understand the close cross-fertilization that occurs among dermatology, dermatopathology, and industry.
The conference will provide a rich educational experience where the interaction among dermatology, dermatopathology, and industry will be explored in a number of different sessions and lectures throughout the symposium. The meeting will also allow ample opportunity for networking of attendees with industry leaders who will be welcomed into all educational sessions and social activities. Another innovative component that distinguishes this conference from others is that it includes sessions on business development insights for clinicians.
The meeting curriculum is a great fit for dermatologists, Mohs surgeons, dermatopathologists, pathologists, physician extenders, and other clinicians who would like to sharpen their dermatology and dermatopathology skills. The conference is also beneficial to residents and fellows preparing for certification examinations, attending physicians preparing for recertification examinations, and physicians in the industry who interact with clinicians or other researchers. Approximately 25 CME and 75 MOC credit hours will be available to be earned. There will also be a board review for residents and fellows.
Multiple support and promotional opportunities are also available, including support of receptions and workshops, print advertising, and organization branding opportunities.
The meeting will take place at the Marriott Mountain Resort nestled at the base of Vail Mountain. The natural beauty that surrounds the breathtaking luxury resort is reflected in a chateau-style atmosphere of warm elegance, cozy rooms, heated pools, outdoor recreation, and a luxurious on-site spa. The meetings will primarily take place in the mornings and early evenings with abundant time for enjoying the beautiful Vail Valley region, which is spectacular in the summer months. Fun and engaging social activities will be offered to attendees, spouses and children, and guests.
