Understanding and interpreting the Scientific Programme

To find the best training and appropriate lectures most suited to you, we strongly recommend you proceed as follows.


Firstly, select your experience level and then your topic of interest. All topics have been slotted in either one full day or half-day track in one single room. Thus, each track (T1, T2…) has either one single or two topics - one in the morning and a second in the afternoon (such as melanoma, STI, allergy, etc.). The topics are presented in a structured way beginning with clinics, dermato-histopathology and epidemiology, moving on to diagnosis, classical and advanced treatment options.


Tracks are coloured-coded to simplify the identification of the experience level you are interested in.


Different learning levels

The tracks are divided into three different levels of learning:


Review and Updates

  • Aimed at board-certified dermato-venereologists
  • Short reviews of the topic, followed by an extended update and critical analysis of the published data from the past 4 years
  • With a strong focus on medical and surgical dermatology in daily practice

Training and Educational Forum

  • Real training and teaching for trainees
  • Includes the basics in clinics, histopathology and physiology of important diseases along with explanations of the classical treatments


Expert Forum

  • Aimed at the most experienced specialists
  • A platform to critically exchange and debate the newest developments in dermatology and data from the past 1-2 years


Sample tracks

Session numbering

Each session within the track has been numbered according to the day, track (or room) and position (timing) within the track.
