***After careful consideration, we have made the decision to cancel the Annual Spring Dermatology Review 20202 for April 24-25, 2020. This is a disappointing but prudent decision as the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve rapidly. The safety and well-being of our learners and their patients is our top priority.

All registered participants will receive a FULL refund for the conference; please note that due to the volume of refunds we are processing it could take up to 12 weeks to receive your refund. We apologize for any inconvenience!

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.

Register early as this course sold out in the last 4 years.
