The participants will get a head start on clinco-pathologic correlation with 8 lectures on both inflammatory dermatoses and tumors. Interesting cases highlighting these lesions will be demonstrated by way of clinical photographs, photomicrographs or state of the art software with and digital histopathological slides in virtual format. On the second day, the participants will complete a multiple choice self-assessment exam using virtual dermatopathology, through software access to relevant cases. The participants will use their own lap-top computers as microscopes and the software enables them to move from low to higher power. Once the questions have been answered, participants verify their submissions of the answers and thereafter they cannot be changed. Brief lectures given by the faculty on key features of the cases will follow. The participants will also get hand-outs in pdf format, with the correct answers to the questions, discussion about the cases presented and references.
