On 22 October, the programme will begin with an introduction to the software by way of challenging cases using virtual/digital slides. This is followed by informative lectures on various aspects of dermatopathology provided by the faculty, who are board certified in dermatopathology.

In the self-assessment exam on 23 October, the participants will use the digital software and thereby get first hand experience in digital dermatopathology. The software, which is accessible on participants‘ laptop or desktop computers, with Adobe Flash Player (free download), incorporates clinical information, clinical photographs and digital slides, as well as the handouts. The latter will be accessible as PDF‘s after the exam review. Please note that Flash Player cannot be used with a tablet or smartphone.

Due to the fact that two of the speakers are in the USA, the timing had to be adjusted for their convenience
