About Us

London Dermatopathology Symposium is an international symposium dedicated to high quality teaching in the UK and abroad. With over 30 leading dermatopathologists from around the world as speakers, the 2019 symposium is set to become one of the best international symposia on dermatopathology.

 

This symposium has been leaving its spot on international dermatopathology teaching with five successful annual symposia. Last year the symposium attracted more than 120 delegates from over 26 countries.  With an impressive lineup of speakers, the 2019 symposium is set to become even bigger and we expect to attract more delegates than ever. The symposium includes the popular self-assessment session and the practical multiheader sessions. Leading speakers will be offering short courses on important areas. Check out this year’s programme to find out more about what is on offer.
