S001 - Gross and Microscopic Symposium

Friday, February 16; 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Review and interpret a broad variety of dermatological conditions through multiple clinical cases presented in a fast pace, with clinical, surgical, and dermatopathological correlations.
  • Recognize a wide variety of dermatological entities with direct applicability to patient care.
  • Increase your diagnostic and treatment skills.


Two-full day symposium entails 192 presentations, which will cover the gamut of clinical dermatology, predicated on clinical/pathological correlation, with attention to new and interesting observations. Presentations will be grouped into several clinical categories allowing attenders to focus on particular conditions/entities. Each presentation will be five minutes long, including a clinical/pathological case, and review of the topic. As such, this symposium is lively and fast paced, hopefully "with something for everyone" in the audience. Presentations will be clinically germane and applicable to patient care. Symposium is open to all AAD members, non-members, residents, fellows, and medical students.
