With Dermoscopy Excellence, our professors want to provide to doctors specialized in dermatology all the available theoretical knowledge on dermoscopic criteria and to guide them towards a profitable use of dermoscopy in their daily practice.

Our annual appointment with the international masterclass was attended by participants from more than 50 countries.
