odac_new_badgeDERM IN-REVIEW BOARD REVIEW WORKSHOP – Friday, January 15th, 1pm

Board Preparation Pre-Conference Workshop led by Program Director, Adam Friedman, MD.

The workshop focuses on general dermatology topics such as clinical and preventive dermatology, epidemiology of cutaneous diseases, dermatological manifestations of systemic disease, hair and nail disorders, skin cancer, and many more. This prep course will also include an audience response system for participants to examine and test their knowledge of more than 100 Kodachrome images. This will provide residents with the visual guidance needed to effectively evaluate, diagnose, and manage all forms of skin disease.


Throughout the conference, specific talks and workshops of most relevance for the resident attendee will be highlighted in the meeting agenda.


For the 18th year, ODAC offers an exclusive half-day aesthetic workshop, including live demonstrations and hands-on training with REAL product, designed specifically for the dermatology resident.
