The course is designed specifically as a refresher course solely for Consultant Dermatologists and will be taught by faculty consisting of Consultant Dermatological Surgeons.

The workshop will provide hands-on practical sessions, with the opportunity for one on one tuition on basic techniques in skin surgery alongside lectures relating to different aspects of dermatological surgery. The course will focus initially on the basics – such as perfecting punch biopsies, curettage, local anaesthesia, the simple primary closure and basic suture techniques. More advanced topics, such as surgical pearls, flaps and grafts and dealing with complications will also be covered.
