INSTITUTE UPDATES 2021
The Skin Health Institute is hosting 6 Institute Updates this year. Senior consultants share the latest developments in their field of interest with their colleagues, and as such are the ideal opportunity to keep up to date with the newest advances in dermatology. Attendance by dermatologists, registrars and dermatology nurses is highly encouraged. Attending dermatologists qualify for CPD points.
You can register for the first Update below. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
