Lecture topics and hands on surgical techniques were based upon our previous attendee’s expressed needs and recommendations of key option leaders. Physicians will be able to work 1-1 with Board Certified experts and obtain personalized assessment of their skills and improve their performance when faced with commonly seen basal cell carcinomas and other conditions that must be excised for biopsies in the primary physician’s practice.


  • Review basic morphology and the development of differential diagnosis
  • Identify how to choose the correct biopsy technique for various dermatological conditions
  • Perform various biopsy technique including a shave, punch, and excisional biopsy
  • Describe and demonstrate multiple suture techniques including a simple interrupted and running suture
  • Demonstrate and apply knowledge of accepted standards of clinical medicine in the respective area regarding dermatology practices; remain current with new developments in medicine and participate in life-long learning activities

The target audience includes primary care physicians, family practice physicians, internal medicine physicians, and other healthcare learners who treat patients within the primary care setting.

Many primary care physicians treat multiple conditions in a rural setting. Practice and guidance to the use of best techniques for treating and excising commonly seen dermatology skin conditions will lead to improved patient care when a specialist is not available.

Learners require more knowledge and practice when treating dermatologic lesions. This activity was designed to improve both knowledge through education and competence by practicing suturing techniques. Participants will leave with pearls which they can apply immediately to their practice.

Currently PCP’s and family practice providers do not have the knowledge or tools to confidently assess, diagnose, treat and manage patients with many dermatologic skin conditions. Many patients in the underserved areas do not have access to a Dermatologist and their course will provide physicians the opportunity to improve their skills in assessment, excision and suturing of many dermatology problems and skin cancers.

Learners require more up-to-date evidence-based information and better hands-on techniques to treat chronic dermatology conditions and skin cancers This activity was designed to improve both knowledge through education and competence performing common dermatologic skin procedures by working 1-1 with a Board Certified Dermatology. Discussions when to refer patients for specialty care.

*Attendance at this course does not indicate nor guarantee competence or proficiency in the performance of any procedures which may be discussed or taught in this course.
