Practical Symposium

I am honored to present the tenth annual Practical Symposium in Beaver Creek, Colorado.  With improved COVID vaccination rates, evolving treatment options, and reported new cases on the decline, we will be hosting an in-person meeting for 2023.  

Our conference emphasizes essential dermatologic topics and how dermatologists and dermatopathologists work together to establish accurate diagnoses and optimal treatment plans.  Based on the popularity of last year’s CME hike, we plan to expand our educational activities for those who desire to learn while enjoying the great outdoors.  Also, the symposium agenda allows numerous networking opportunities between attendees, faculty, and industry executives.

The symposium is an excellent fit for dermatologists, Mohs surgeons, dermatopathologists, pathologists, and physician extenders who seek to deepen their knowledge base.  Industry research doctors who attend will better understand their companies’ essential roles within the dermatology specialty.  Our self-paced slide exam assists residents, fellows, and physicians prepare for the certification or re-certification exam.  Approximately 25 CME hours and 50+ MOC credits will be available to be earned for all registered attendees. 

The symposium offers sessions in the morning and early evenings, allowing ample free time to enjoy the majestic Colorado Rocky Mountains, which are truly spectacular in the summer.  I look forward to seeing you in Beaver Creek and sharing a weekend of learning, networking, and socializing.


With my best personal regards,
