USCAP is transforming not only how we learn, but where we learn. This course will be taught by a world class faculty in one of the most historically important settings in dermatopathology, La Musée des Moulages, the dermatology wax works museum of Hôpital Saint Louis. Dynamic lectures will provide panoramic insight into relevant aspects of dermatopathology including inflammatory dermatoses, melanocytic tumors, cutaneous lymphomas, soft tissue tumors and adnexal tumors. In addition to learning cutting-edge dermatopathology, you will immerse yourselves in the medical history of dermatology and dermatopathology in one of the most important archives of cutaneous diseases.
