Course Objectives

The Edinburgh Dermatopathology Tutorial is an annual course designed to provide a practical approach to different topics in Dermatopathology, delivered by extensive self study of a large and varied selection of cases using virtual glass slides. This year’s course aims to increase awareness of the vast spectrum of cutaneous melanocytic tumours. Attendees will be invited to view 60 challenging and instructive cases ahead of the meeting using scanned virtual slides made available through a web server.  These cases will be discussed at the course by our group of internationally renowned tutors. Discussion will be based around the individual diagnosis placed in the broader context of differential diagnosis. In a relaxed atmosphere participants will be encouraged to participate in the discussion and suggest possible diagnoses. To facilitate the discussion, tutors will provide an overview of the wide spectrum of melanocytic tumours with emphasis on recent diagnostic advances. Electronic copies of all case discussions and lectures will be made available after the course. The course is suited to Pathologists with an interest in Dermatopathology as well as practising Dermatopathologists and Dermatologists and Pathologists in training preparing for the British Diploma, the International Board Certification and/or the American Board examination in Dermatopathology.

 

 

Approval for 15 CPD credits is currently being obtained from the Royal College of Pathologists.
