Primary care physicians often refer patients for dermatological procedures, which they could perform themselves in their practice. Patients expect their physician to care for their skin problems, and new techniques allow faster evaluation and treatment with less scarring.
The Dermatology program is a hands-on workshop taught by a board-certified Dermatologist with exceptional surgical skills. The course covers cryosurgery, radiofrequency excision, modern electrosurgery, biopsy techniques, and basic suturing principles. Specific treatments for lipomas, seborrheic dermatitis, basal cell and squamous cell cancers, melanomas, ingrown toenails, warts, cysts, actinics, skin tags, chalazions, abscesses, and many others. Cryosurgery techniques include liquid nitrogen, nitrous oxide, and hand-held cryosurgery units. You’ll learn how to treat the most common skin disorders using these modalities. You will learn to perform all types of skin biopsy: punch, shave, curettement, and excision. The equipment needed for these procedures is readily affordable.
Our Dermatology Training Program will teach physicians how to properly identify precancerous, cancerous, and benign lesions. Identification of the various forms of skin cancer: Actinic Keratosis, Basal Cell Carcinoma, Melanomas, and other cutaneous malignancies. Cutaneous manifestations of internal malignancy include procedural treatment options such as curettage, desiccation, excisional removal, electrodessication, cryosurgery, and liquid and photodynamic therapies for various lesions.
In addition, you will learn as part of the hands-on training essential surgical skills for Primary Care Dermatological procedures, instruments, biopsy techniques, incisional, suturing, hemostasis, and spcialized procedures such as ingrown toenails, intralesional injections, and electrodessication and curettage. Other therapeutic and diagnostic tools are taught including punch and scalpel biopsies, fusi-form excision, radio frequency surgery, electrocautery, and cryosurgery and the application and use for each of these therapeutic forms.
Included in this 2-Day comprehensive course is a special section on the 40 most common dermatological conditions encountered in a primary care setting including various treatment options such as conventional pharmacologics and other interventional procedures, sun exposure and preventative dermatology including hyperpigmentation and hypertrophic scarring, and P. Acnes and control protocols for moderate and severe acne.
