**COMPLIMENTARY REGISTRATION ENDS Friday, August 18, 2017**

Lurie Cancer Center Cutaneous Lymphoma & Melanoma Symposium Registration Portal for Residents, Fellows and Medical Students Only

As we believe this course is an excellent educational opportunity with nationally recognized experts in the areas of cutaneous lymphoma and melanoma, we are waiving the course registration fee for all medical students, residents and fellows.

Course Overview:

The Lurie Cancer Center Cutaneous Lymphoma & Melanoma Symposium sponsored by the Department of Dermatology will educate physicians and residents on the basics of cutaneous lymphoma and melanoma to better prepare them to recognize and treat these conditions within their clinical practice, to improve patient outcomes, and to be successful on their board examinations. Participants will be challenged to expand beyond their comfort zone, exploring the research on cutaneous lymphomas and melanoma and expanding their knowledge within the field of dermatology. Participants may choose to attend the full 4-day conference, or the 2-day programs on either Cutaneous Lymphoma or on Melanoma.
