All speakers shall ensure a very interactive teaching module.
INTERACTIVE DIALOGUE DISCUSSION WITH EXPERTS
The biggest dilemma of this epidemic is the spread across entire South Asia and the relative ignorance of the key role of non-dermatologist Specialists in management of fungal infections. Thus TWO never-before DIALOGUE SESSIONS shall be held to gain a holistic perspective of the problem – one with our Invited International Faculty, and the other with stalwarts from other specialties.
The best technique of evaluating the transfer of knowledge and skills from the Faculty and Workshop trainers to the trainees is the pre- and post-test analysis. It is the best instrument for reinforcement of the learning by all attending delegates.
LIVE VIDEO DEMO & HANDS-ON-WORKSHOPS
Four NEVER-BEFORE practical training worshops shall be conducted in the second half of the Congress:
1) Nail Peeling for Onychomycosis (Black Peel)
2) QS Nd:YAG Laser for Onychomycosis
3) Entodermoscopy – Dermoscopy for diagnosis of tinea and other cutaneous infections and infestations
4) Photodynamic therapy – subject to availability
The scientific proceedings will consist of various opportunities for the attending PG students and Residents to showcase their knowledge, skills and research work in Clinical Mycology during the AWARD PAPER session and E-Posters. The Inter-collegieate Postgraduate Quiz shall also be conducted.
