It is our belief that every practice should possess a dermatoscope and have at least one doctor adequately trained to safely use it. The main role of Dermoscopy in Primary Care is to help identify benign lesions. The majority of seborrhoeic keratoses, angioma, dermatofibroma and blue naevi can be readily identified with a dermatoscope.

The course is suitable for:

As an introductory course it is suitable for those with little or no previous knowledge as well as those for whom the early stages require reinforcement and reassurance. This course is aimed at GPs and VTS registrars primarily but would also be appropriate for specialist nurses involved in skin care. Indeed anyone involved in examining and advising patients about their skin lesions would benefit.

This is not a practical hands-on course
