Welcome letter

Dear collegues,

We are very happy to invite you to the 3rd one-day course of the Belgian Dermoscopy Group.

The previous two editions in 2014 and 2016, have been a big success, thanks to great lectures and your numerous presence.
The 3rd one day course will take place on Friday, October 5th 2018 in Gent.   The program consists of key lectures by international and national experts, followed by interactive workshops. Our international speakers will be Prof. Harald Kittler and Prof. Aimillios Lallas. Prof. Kittler from Vienna, Austria, is an icon among dermoscopy experts, because  he has a very personal view on terminology and algorithms. As the title already suggests, his  lecture ‘Lost in pigmentation: the hitchhiker’s guide to pattern analysis’  will certainly be enlightening and inspiring. Prof. Lallas, from Thessaloniki, Greece is known for his enthusiastic lectures, and he will talk about non-pigmented skin tumors.

As the field of dermoscopy during recent years has expanded towards inflammoscopy and trichoscopy, we decided to include these topics in our course. They  have proven to be an added value in the daily dermatology practice. Prof. Lallas will give a second lecture on inflammoscopy. Dr.Veronique Meuleman, whose strong didactic qualities we all know, will guide us through the world of trichoscopy.

Our goal is to send you home with new dermoscopy knowledge to  use in your daily practice. We will end the day with an interactive workshop (in Dutch/French) , so you already get the flow of it.
We hope to welcome all of you on Octobre 5th in Gent!

Katrien Vossaert – President BDG
