Live Patient Viewing: A Mission of Serving Patients

The highlight of Atlantic Derm is our Live Patient Viewing, where doctors gather from across the country to view and discuss more than sixty live patients with exceptional diagnostic and therapeutic challenges.  Atlantic Derm members gather to learn and share new developments, but our patients are the reason why this conference remains true to its history – a case-based clinical conference.
