Dermatology for Primary Care Providers

Event description:

This full day continuing medical education (CME) conference hosted by the UC Irvine Department of Dermatology aims to educate primary care providers at UC Irvine and in the surrounding communities as to some of the more common dermatoses they are likely to encounter in their practices, how to treat them and which patients might be better referred to a dermatologist for specialist treatment.

Attendees will be taught by our outstanding faculty on a diverse range of topics including acne, psoriasis, eczema, blistering diseases, skin infections, benign and malignant skin tumors, and aesthetic issues. This course will empower those present to more easily diagnose and treat their patients in the primary care setting, and is likely to reduce the need for specialist referrals for common dermatologic conditions. 

Attendees will be able to choose between an in-person or virtual attendance on the registration page below.
