Are you worried about missing a Melanoma?

Are you worried about missing a Melanoma?

One of every clinician's biggest fear is a missed diagnosis, and as doctors and nurses, we are often the first and sometimes the only ones to see our patient’s skin. We recognise the difficulty in assessing skin lesions and the fear most have in missing a potentially life-threatening melanoma. Skin Cancer Symposiums has developed courses that are easy to understand and immediately applicable, allowing you to confidently assess whether a skin lesion is benign or malignant.

Dermatoscopy - the easy way

Dermatoscopy is an invaluable tool when paired with the right training. However, training is often hard to access, expensive or needlessly complex. We have leveraged decades of experience from world-class experts to create courses that are accessible, affordable and easy to understand!

Skin Cancer Symposiums delivers world-class teaching from Professor Amanda Oakley, the founder of Dermnet and Professor Cliff Rosendahl, the co-author of ‘Chaos and Clues’ and ‘Pigment without Prediction’. Cliff and Amanda break down dermatoscopy teaching into simple easy to follow algorithms.

Complimentary Molescope II*

Our primary focus is to reduce global morbidity and mortality from skin cancer. We have partnered with MetaOptima so we can offer students of select dermatoscopy courses a free Molescope II Digital Dermatoscope from MetaOptima (worth $449 NZD / £227 / $449 AUD / $325 USD). This will allow every clinician to make use of the teaching immediately without cost of equipment as a barrier.
