Thirty-five years ago, Superficial Anatomy and Cutaneous Surgery was conceived as a course which would be beneficial to dermatologists, dermatologic surgeons and other physicians. The course has developed over the years as we continue to remain on the leading edge of cutaneous surgery.
We have received many awards and compliments, which are a reflection of the efforts of our superb faculty and staff, many of whom have been coming year after year. They have been true leaders in dermatologic surgery.
The program is designed to provide the basic information and principles of superficial head and neck anatomy and surgery for those interested in dermatological surgery. Each participant will utilize fresh cadaver material for superficial head and neck dissection. Lectures will be used for initial instruction and review and will be followed by ample time in the laboratory.
The other major portion of the course relates to local skin flaps and grafts as they pertain to the cutaneous surgeon. In addition to didactic and cadaver laboratory training, several small group workshop sessions are scheduled to give participants an opportunity to problem solve with the outstanding faculty we have assembled. Plus, the instructor to student ratio is quite small to enable close supervision.
2018 Highlights Include:
Optional evening workshop sessions
Extensive hands-on cadaver laboratory time
Laboratory manuals with diagrams and daily goals for each lab
Botulinum toxin current status
Updated resurfacing techniques
Registration will be limited to ensure an optimal learning experience. Due to the ever-increasing demand for fresh cadaver material, this course may not be allocated the requested number of specimens, in which case the number of participants would decrease.
We look forward to seeing you in August!

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
Identify the principles of superficial head and neck anatomy
Review the principles of construction via local skin flaps
Demonstrate full thickness and split thickness skin grafts
Illustrate the anatomic principles and reconstruction of specific body units (e.g. ear, nose, foot, hand, etc.)
Examine indications and treatment of photo damaged skin, including chemical peels, dermabrasion and topical therapies
