This one and a half day conference was planned with the Primary Care Physician in mind and will endeavour to provide education in dermatology focusing on practical diagnosis and management. The conference format has been very successful and will continue unchanged with a mixture of 30 minute plenary lectures and small group interactive sessions. The interactive case discussions on the last afternoon are very popular and provide participants the opportunity to share experiences and to question the experts. 

The conference is the result of collaboration between the UBC Department of Dermatology and Skin Science and the UBC Division of Continuing Professional Development. The speakers are drawn from the teaching faculty of the UBC Department of Dermatology and Community Dermatologists.
