Exam of the Future –New This Year! 
The American Board of Dermatology (ABD) is restructuring the In-Training and Certification exams—moving from the current approach of emphasizing knowledge retention and visual diagnosis to exams that better emphasize the application of knowledge using clinically relevant case scenarios. The goal of the Exam of the Future (EOTF) is to more comprehensively assess clinical competence and more closely simulate the actual clinical experience. The tiered structure of the EOTF parallels the course of acquiring competence; one learns the basics of the field, acquires more advanced knowledge, and then learns to apply the knowledge appropriately in clinical situations.  Dr. Tammie Ferringer will outline the stepwise process of Basic, Core, and Applied exams, and explain what these changes mean to you.

History of Derm Surgery

It is almost inconceivable how much the treatment of skin cancers has changed in the almost 50 years since Dr. Perry Robins began his career in dermatology. Few dermatologic surgeons have had such a major impact on cutaneous scientific and technological discoveries as this Mohs pioneer. He is known around the world for his contributions to the field of dermatology, in particular the treatment of skin cancer where his dedication to patients and commitment to education have benefited millions of patients. He was chief of the Mohs Micrographic Surgery Unit at NYU, performing about 47,000 skin cancer surgeries in his career, and was the first to offer one-year fellowships in Mohs surgery. As an accomplished educator in his field, Dr. Robins has trained sixty doctors from around the world who are now leaders in dermatologic and skin cancer care, and he has lectured in thirty-four countries in four languages.  Travel back with Dr. Robins thru the history of dermatology surgery to discover lessons from the past and hope for the future. Guaranteed to change the way you think about dermatology.

Getting the Most Out Of Your Biopsies

Skin biopsy is an indispensable tool in evaluation of indistinct cutaneous eruptions and suspicious skin lesions.  Histologic interpretation of skin specimens, perhaps more than any other organ system, is influenced by the way the biopsy specimen was taken, the site of the biopsy, the amount of tissue submitted, and the amount and type of information submitted with the specimen. Expert Dermatopathologist, Dr. Tammie Ferringer, will offer biopsy pearls that can optimize your pathology results, and show you how to work with your dermatopathologist to maximize proper clinicopathologic correlation. Discover how to optimize the pathology results from your biopsy whether it is for a neoplasm or inflammatory disease; with special attention to biopsies for mycosis fungoides, alopecia, direct immunofluorescence, onychomycosis, melanocytic and non-melanocytic tumors. 

Tammie Ferringer, MD

  Peri-oral Rejuvenation 

Lips are a central part of facial aesthetics due to their color, surface texture, and shape. Well defined and full lips represent attractiveness and beauty, making it one of the most demanded areas for aesthetic rejuvenation. This region is difficult to rejuvenate because the causes of the problem are multifactorial but the approaches tend to be unidimensional. Aesthetic expert and ODAC Vice Chair, Dr. Joel Cohen, guides through the plethora of options for perioral rejuvenation, including laser, fillers, and botulinum toxin. Gain an intimate understanding of all the options, and how to recognize when a multi-dimensional approach is most appropriate. Dr. Cohen will share a few of the practical pearls that helped distinguish him as a leader in aesthetic dermatology.

    What I Need to Know about Biosimilars Now

Over the last decade the availability of biological medicines for the treatment of psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis and many other inflammatory diseases has revolutionized the treatment of these afflictions around the world. However, the high cost of treatment has significantly reduced the availability of treatment, restricting treatment to only a narrow group of the most seriously ill patients. That is why there is so much interest in biosimilars, the introduction of which into therapy would be a cheaper alternative to the treatment of a larger group of patients. Currently, the subject of biosimilars is one of the most important challenges and topics of discussion around the world, including pharmacovigilance and legal and economic regulatory standards. Join Dr. Leon Kircik as he guides you through the complex world of biosimilars, how they are different from generics, new biosimilar technologies, real life clinical application of biosimilars, and what you need to know right now to stay informed and up-to-date.

In recent years, new modalities have been developed to address body contouring from a less-invasive perspective. These modalities target the physical properties of fat that differentiate it from the overlying epidermis and dermis, thus resulting in selective destruction of fat. Devices using high-frequency ultrasound, radiofrequency energy, and laser light have the potential to improve efficiency, minimize adverse consequences, and shorten postoperative recovery time. Aesthetic experts Dr. Robert Gotkin, Dr.  Bruce Katz, and Dr.  Jill Waibel join forces in this innovative panel reviewing cryolipolysis usage in the United States, including statistics, adverse events, commonly treated body areas, side effects, treatment protocols and downtime. Learn which body contouring modality to use based on exam, body area, size of treatment area and medical history. Look towards the future of body contouring, new emerging cryolipolysis applications, and how these procedures can help expand, enhance, and enrich your practice.

Injectable fillers are considered safe in experienced dermatologists’ hands, but even the most experienced specialists can encounter an adverse event such as vascular compromise. Fortunately, with the use of approved substances as well as a keen knowledge of the underlying anatomy, vascular compromise is a very rare circumstance. Injectable expert, Dr. Joel Cohen reviews the potential side effects of filler agents, the “Danger Zones” when injecting, and specific signs and symptoms of vascular compromise and impending necrosis. He’ll share his personal algorithm of vascular compromise treatment modalities with specific references from his own research and practice. Guaranteed to change the way you inject!

The link between psoriasis and other medical conditions such as psoriatic arthritis (PsA), cardiovascular disease, metabolic disorder, inflammatory bowel disease, uveitis, psychiatric disorders, lymphoma and ocular disease is now being recognized by a growing body of literature. A few decades ago, it was considered an exclusive skin disease but today it is considered a multisystem disease. Dr. Alan Menter, founder of the International Psoriasis Council, will discuss the co-morbidity profile of psoriasis, and the role of the dermatologist in recognizing and recommending treatment for these comorbid conditions. Discover a greater understanding of the systemic nature of psoriasis, its potentially life-threatening co-morbidities, and how to screen your patients to protect them.

The field of hair restoration has come a long way since the obvious giant hair plugs. PRP is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions. In this session, we will review both the science and the results of PRP therapy while performing a live demonstration.

                                                                                            Getting to the Bottom of Itch: Chronic Itch

The classic thinking in dermatology is that pruritus is a symptom and feature of many of the skin conditions seen in the clinic on a routine basis. However, stemming largely from a growing body of scientific discoveries highlighting the complex and multifactorial nature of pruritus, there is an emerging paradigm that recognizes itch as a disease rather than a symptom.  In the brain, pruritus and psyche are intertwined in a complex manner. Known as “the Godfather of Itch”, dermatologist and neurobiologist, Dr. Gil Yosipovitch, shares his expertise on the cascade of physiological events that causes pruritis. Investigate the neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of itch, the pharmacology of anti- pruritics and learn about treatments effective across multiple disease states that target common elements found in pruritus.

  The Case of the Methotrexate Mama – A Psoriasis Case Study

Fifty percent of patients diagnosed with psoriasis are women, most diagnosed during childbearing years. Currently, the estimate is that up to 107,000 deliveries are performed annually in women with psoriasis, a percentage of them in women with moderate to severe disease. Fetal risks in pregnant women with psoriasis derive both from maternal disease and the medications used to control the illness. Pregnancy planning in women with inflammatory diseases requires the adjustment of medications that are both able to maintain the disease stable and are also compatible with embryonic and fetal development. During this session psoriasis expert, Dr. Alan Menter, will review the appropriate treatment protocols during pregnancy and post-partum breastfeeding, as well as practical pearls he uses for his expectant patients. Review psoriasis treatments that are possibly harmful to the developing fetus, and learn how careful pre-conception planning and management adjustment are crucial for the pregnant patient

  Facial Anatomy and the Aesthetic Rejuvenation Plan – Strategies for Optimal Outcomes

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but artistry, proportions, and symmetry really help. The aging process is a complex interplay of intrinsic and extrinsic factors across multiple layers of the face. Accordingly, combining aesthetic interventions targeting different manifestations of aging often leads to better results than single modalities alone because no single technology, filler or neuromodulator can achieve all the results desired in treating the aging face. Aesthetic power duo, Dr. Deborah Sarnoff & Dr. Robert Gotkin provide insight into their system of non-surgical rejuvenation procedure which combines minimally invasive modalities in a unique and efficient way. Discover how to increase patient satisfaction by revamping your patient consultation and uncovering what they are really looking for. Dr. Sarnoff & Dr. Gotkin will share their practical pearls for combining aesthetic therapies– including timing, common combinations, possible complications, and dosages.

                                                        Genoderms Made Ludicrously Easy– Sponsored by Ortho Dermatologics         ~Book Distribution~

The genodermatoses are a large group of rare inherited single-gene disorders with skin manifestations. Recognition is important not only for the initiation of appropriate dermatologic therapy, but also for the detection of other associated abnormalities in these frequently multisystem disorders. The dermatologist’s ability to recognize the features of a genodermatosis is unique among medical specialists, but it is rare for a dermatologist to encounter undiagnosed genetic skin diseases in daily practice, thus making it difficult to memorize these genodermatoses.

Join Dr. Justin Finch for this fresh look at these unique conditions and receive a copy of his new book Genoderms Made Ludicrously Easy. Genoderms Made Ludicrously Easy is designed to be a complete guide for the majority of genetic diseases that have cutaneous symptoms. It is organized into sections based on the primary phenotypic disorder of the genodermatoses (e.g. disorders of cornification, photosensitivity, malignant potential, etc.). Each syndrome discussed includes the name, common eponyms (if relevant), the inheritance pattern, the gene mutation, and the protein involved. Important clinical presentations, associations, lab abnormalities, and in some cases treatments are also included.
