The approach to the Dermatology case
Topics covered in the two days of lectures will include anatomy of the skin and ear; diagnostic techniques (skin scrapes, pluck, cytology and skin biopsy, cultures, endocrine tests); allergy, ectoparasites, hormonal skin disease and otitis externa.
Day 3 (the practical day) will take place at Woodrow House, Gloucester. In the morning delegates will have the opportunity to take and examine different diagnostic samples such as skin scrapes, plucks and tape strips as well as working with the tutors to identify prepared microscopic samples.
In the afternoon there will be a session on simple skin surgery and suture patterns including taking biopsies.
Delegates will have the opportunity to practice on synthetic materials.
Two webinars will take place between the day courses and will be case based allowing delegates to apply their skills.
The award will be completed with an online assessment and a case study.
