NIDIskin is a medical educational provider that delivers the most innovative and effective educational content for Dermatologists and Pathologists in both live and virtual curated environments. We engage thought leaders at the top of their field to share their knowledge and approach to the latest and greatest in diagnostic techniques, technologies, and treatments in Dermatology and Dermatopathology. Both our live and virtual session formats are designed to maximize interaction and learner engagement, and focus on learning through practice rather than passively sitting through lectures. Learn with us through any of our live conferences, live webinars, or online courses!
The NIDIskin Spring Symposium is the first accredited Confocal Microscopy Reader’s course in the United States, and the only one of its kind in the world, where attendees begin their journey toward mastering a new specialty, gain basic proficiency in two days, and can practice signing real cases in our proprietary simulation portal that mimics the experience of signing cases in real life. The NIDIskin Online Confocal Microscopy Reader’s Course has the largest archive of RCM cases in the world and is currently the only resource available that allows practitioners to continue developing proficiency in reading RCM cases through consistently practicing on live cases. Chapter 1: A Beginner’s Guide to Confocal Microscopy is available for free and comes with 15 practice cases. All subsequent chapters are available for purchase and each chapter comes with a pack of 100 practice cases.
