Skin Cancer Conference
Hamilton Island
Hamilton Island, Hamilton Island
The 2011 Skin Cancer Conference and Workshops are run over a four day period commencing with a day of workshops (Thursday), followed by the two day conference (Friday and Saturday) and concluding with a day of workshops (Sunday). The program is complimented with various offsite activities to enhance the whole experience of a conference on Hamilton Island

The aim of the two day conference program is to update you with the latest hot topics in skin cancer medicine. The sessions will cover the latest research, enabling you to easily incorporate the information into your own practice. As doctors, it is vital for you to remain up to date with the latest research in your field so that you can provide the best care for your patients.

The sessions are designed to be highly interactive so we have a moderator coordinating each one. There will be expert panels, debates between speakers, and moderated questions from the floor.

Conference Fee:
Delegate $1200
Delegate (UQ/HealthCert/ACD/SCCANZ/ACSCM) $1100

The selected workshops will enable you to interact closely with many of the conference presenters in a small group format. The workshops are highly varied and cover a range of topics - some are related to conference presentations and some are not. All workshops are focussed on improving your clinical practice skills.

Workshop Fee:
$495 per workshop except the research workshop which is $100
(NB. Workshops are to be booked in conjunction with the conference registration)
