Dermatology is a rapidly evolving specialty on the forefront of research and treatment advancements. With the advent of new advances in medical, cosmetic, and surgical dermatology, new clinical recommendations for diagnosis and treatment of various dermatologic conditions are developed. 

The San Diego Dermatology Symposium (SDDS) is a three-day symposium that will educate practitioners on the latest developments in dermatology. Renowned faculty and key thought leaders will present updates on clinically-relevant topics, such as: sunscreens, pediatric dermatology, alopecia, psoriasis, dermatopathology, cutaneous infections, nail disorders, dermoscopy, hyper-/hypopigmentation disorders, hyperhidrosis, hidradenitis suppurativa, HIV, phototherapy, eczema, acne, rosacea, cancer, laser and sclerotherapy, and skin anti-aging strategies. SDDS, to be held May 29-31 at the Intercontinental San Diego, will also provide insights into useful topics for the practicing dermatologist such as career and practices tips, building a successful cosmetic dermatology practice, personal finance, burnout, and social media. As an integral part of the conference’s continuing education program, attendees will also have the opportunity to view show-cased original research. 

Attendees can earn up to 17 CME credit hours.
