Dermatopathology in the Desert: Practical Dermatopathology recalls Dr. Bernard Ackerman’s historical sessions in Palm Springs, annual events that attracted dermatopathologists and dermatologists to his charismatic personality and profound knowledge. Under the direction of Dr. Steven Billings of the Cleveland Clinic, a vibrant, modern, pragmatic, interactive version has been reimagined with five additional stars in the panoply of cutaneous pathology.

This is the dream dermatopathology course you can’t miss!

Read about the faculty and their contemporary topics, then select Register, and become involved in a desert expedition to understanding the panorama of skin manifestations.

There is ample time to explore Palm Springs from mid-century modern architecture to desert hikes, trendy restaurants, coffee houses and bars. First class mentoring in a world class destination!
