Nine clinical dermatologists will provide 15 hours of CE credit on treatment strategies for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcal infections, the newest dermatologic diets and when to use them, why ear cleaning is a must for treatment of otitis externa, newest topical and systemic treatments for otic infections, when and how to use the new flea products, essential topical products for your practice, recently described skin conditions of cats and their treatment, updates on skin cancer treatments, sublingual immunotherapy and new drugs for atopic dermatitis, and dermatologic treatment practice tips. Each day will finish with a 30-minute discussion of “controversies in dermatology”.
