 12th Annual Conference | September 10-12, 2020 at the InterContinental Buckhead

2020 Dermatology PEARLS Conference will now be Virtual

Dermatology PEARLS is a three-day medical education program designed as a comprehensive education experience for Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners working in the dermatology specialty.  The Georgia Dermatology Physician Assistants is pleased to host Dermatology PEARLS for our colleagues across the nation.  We invite you to join us online for three days of intensive education and Tracks to build your knowledge and competence in the specialty of Dermatology.

A large consideration in our meeting planning involves the recruitment of a faculty panel that represents thought leaders in the dermatology specialty as well as real-world clinicians who provide practical insight into diagnosing and caring for patients.

This program is not yet approved for CME credit.  Conference organizers plan to request 25.0 AAPA Category I CME credit from the Physician Assistant Review Panel.
