Weitzman ECHO Dermatology 2022-2023 (May 9, 2023)
The Weitzman ECHO Dermatology series will train primary care providers on how to incorporate dermatoscopes into practice, promote management strategies for common dermatological conditions, and improve the identification of skin cancers and infections. These skills will result in well-equipped providers implementing early intervention in dermatology. At each session, subject-matter expert Dr. Vinny Seiverling will provide valuable clinical pearls on dermatological methods and conditions and share case recommendations on participating providers' presented cases.
Weitzman ECHO Dermatology is a no-cost, 9-session program offered in collaboration with ConferMED. This Weitzman ECHO program will meet over Zoom Video Conferencing for 1-hour and will kick off our first session on October 25th, 2022. After the first session, the program will begin meeting on the second Tuesday of each month from 5-6 pm CT.
CME, CNE, CPE, and CEU credits will be provided for physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and nurses, among others, by Community Health Center, Inc., an accredited provider through Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional Continuing Education.
