Tropical Dermatology

Knowledge of tropical dermatology is becoming increasingly important in the dermatology clinics of Europe due to imported skin disease from either returning travellers or incoming migrants/refugees. With the current migration crisis facing Europe at the moment the issue of tropical knowledge is especially acute.

The course will address this specific need as well as considering equipping the European dermatovenereologist with the skills to take out to tropics as well as resource poor destinations too.
