Connecting Dermatologists and Dermatology Professionals


The NYU Post-Graduate Medical School and the Ronald O. Perelman Department of Dermatology are proud to host Advances in Dermatology, a symposium which targets practitioners caring for people with skin disease, including dermatologists, dermatologic surgeons, and residents in dermatology.  

The 2011 symposium will take place on Thursday and Friday, June 9th & 10th, followed by a pediatric and adolescent dermatology symposium on Saturday, June 11th. 

A nationally-recognized faculty will address important developments in medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology. A two-day symposium comprised of a series of didactic lectures strives for an unbiased and provocative perspective on many important topics
relevant to both the dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon.  This clinical program is immediately applicable to patient care, with a focus on broadening the armamentarium for the treatment of dermatologic diseases and aesthetic concerns that clinicians have at their disposal for dermatologic diseases and cosmetic therapy, evaluating newer and current therapies based on efficacy, convenience, and monitoring requirements.

Learning objectives include:

  • Based on a careful consideration of risk and benefit, as well as the published guidelines, demonstrate proper patient selection for medical, surgical and cosmetic intervention for dermatologic conditions
  • Describe alternative nonsurgical methods of facial rejuvenation, including an expanding range of fillers, new chemodenervation agents, and fractional ablative technologies and formulate multimodality treatment plans based on known effectiveness of combination therapy
  • Expand treatment options for non-surgical and minimally surgical fat contouring based on the implementation of laser assisted devices
  • Base strategic approach to removal of cutaneous malignancy on epidemiologic, histopathologic, and current clinical research
  • Describe strategies for incorporating adult therapies into pediatric patient treatment plans
  • Critically evaluate available data on new treatments for psoriasis, including biologic and small molecule therapy, as well new findings for connective tissue disease

The symposium will be held at:

NYU School of Medicine
Alumni Hall, Farkas Auditorium
550 First Avenue (31st Street)
New York, NY 10016
