Why should you attend?

  • The diversity of topics and the excellence of the faculty and their enthusiasm cannot be matched anywhere else.This course is not offered by simply one or two universities or practices. Our faculty includes THE experts in every aspect of deramtopathology, providing a broad perspective for our participants.
  • The ASDP essentials course is a great value. We have kept the cost low compared to most other courses out there.
  • We offer a very robust program and all of the materials are scanned and available online after the meeting for the remainder of the year.
  • We offer truly vetted and peer-reviewed materials and questions to a level just not available in other meetings.
  • We have the best slide library anywhere. This is not just a collection of "cases" or "slides." Each slide in our library has a vetted write-up associated with it. This is unique among dermatopathology courses. Each year when we look over the course evaluations, attendees rave about the slide library and ask for more time to spend there.

Here's what some of last year's attendees had to say!

  • A great summation that helped solidify my current knowledge as a Dermpath fellow in preparation for boards.
  • Excellent review for practicing dermpaths.
  • Great rapid review that gave me direction for my studying for the Board Exam.
  • I particularly appreciated being able to go to the slide room before and after the lectures.
  • This was a fantastic review with great new material, and left me energized!
  • Experience was good, but intense. Perfect for the serious student.
  • Priceless for the general pathologist.
  • Fantastic! I would recommend this to anyone, whether getting ready for boards or well into practice. I think all fellows should attend this.
