Program Purpose / Objectives
This course is designed to update dermatologists and other interested physicians, nurses and health care providers in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of skin diseases through lectures, Q&A sessions and case presentations. The participant will have an opportunity to explore these topics with a nationally recognized and expert faculty in small group sessions, which promotes interaction and enhances learning.

Upon completion of this CME activity, participants will be able to:
· Recognize cutaneous markers of internal malignancy including genodermatoses & paraneoplastic disorders.
· Understand intrinsic and extrinsic changes of cutaneous aging, see examples of their clinical correlates and know how to manage them in practice.
· · Discuss the diagnosis and management of cutaneous malignant melanoma and learn the role of lymphatic mapping and sentinal node biopsy.
· Initiate new strategies for treating acne and rosacea
· Be cognizant of new therapeutic modalities for the treatment of actinic keratoses and basal cell carcinoma.
· Recommend sunscreens and photoprotection to your patients based on a fundamental understanding of photobiology and sunscreen ingredients.
· Learn subtle clues to recognition of several unusual, complex and serious dermatologic disorders.
· Offer your patients new or alternative therapeutic options for managing psoriasis and atopic dermatitis.
· Learn to recognize subtle clues of assaults from several ectoparasites and their treatment.
· Learn how to help manage your complicated patients through an inter-active round table discussion among participants.

Ports of Call
Arhus, Denmark - Step back to the Middle Ages in Old Town with its cobbled streets and faultless renditions of half-timbered houses. Shop for unique Danish handcrafts. Explore the ruggedly beautiful Jutland Peninsula and its heathery hills.
Copenhagen, Denmark - Denmark's capital is sophisticated, saucy and friendly. Stroll the fairytale world of Tivoli Gardens to take in bright lights, castles that out-Disney Disney. See the city's 200- year-old Royal Palace, the lively Old Harbor - Hans Christian Andersen lived here. Salute the Little Mermaid, symbol of this light-hearted city.
Harwich (London), England - "Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford." Samuel Johnson's famous words are as true today as when he spoke them. A visitor to London could fill a month with fascinating people, art, music, late-night dancing, fabulous shopping, an endless array of pubs and first rate meals. Tourists should take in Victoria Station, the beauty of Westminster Abbey, Parliament, and the pomp of Buckingham Palace. And then there are the "Elgin Marbles" at the British Museum and the Crown Jewels in the Tower of London. Or visit Sherlock Holmes' HQ on Baker Street (you know the address). After all that, make what might be the most important stop of all: grab a pint at one of the many corner pubs that's been hosting revelers since before America was a nation. Port tips from our blog
Helsinki, Finland - Shaped by its bays and isles, it's one of Europe's most scenic capitals. Hear a Sibelius concert, tour across the Arctic Circle to Lapland, land of Santa Claus, reindeer and the Midnight Sun. Buy a birchbark basket.

Take in a concert--folkloric or grandly operatic. Make a flying trip to Moscow to view monuments from Soviet and pre-Soviet days: Red Square, the Kremlin, St. Basil's Cathedral, Lenin's Tomb.

*Visas are included with most shore excursions. If you wish to explore St. Petersburg on your own, however, a visa will be required; obtaining one can take some time, so please begin the visa process immediately.
Stockholm, Sweden - So much to see in this charming city, sprawled on 18 islands, often called the "Venice of the North." Cruise the sparkling waterways. Navigate narrow medieval streets. Watch the snappy changing of the guard at the Baroque Royal Palace. Shop for elegant gifts--glassware, stainless steel. Work up an appetite so you can do justice to the lavish smorgasbords
Tallinn, Estonia - Medieval walls and towers still stand tall in Old Town. Stroll and shop along cobblestone streets, walk up to the Baroque palace, drop in at Alexander Nevsky Cathedral to find inspiration in the gleaming mosaics and icons.
