Dermfoot 2023

DERMfoot is the first annual meeting in the country devoted to providing foot and ankle specialists with an experience that no other seminar can match. Instead of hours devoted to traditional subjects like surgery and biomechanics, we focus on what a podiatrist treats every day - the skin.

The skin is the largest organ in the body and can be a rewarding discipline to focus on while providing our patients with a better quality of life. Skin cancer is the 5th most common cancer in the US. Melanoma, largely found on the palms, soles, and nail units, is the deadliest. We can do something to change these statistics with a simple skin evaluation for our patients.

DERMfoot 2023 will continue its tradition of dermatological excellence. Our world-renowned faculty of podiatrists, dermatologists, and researchers will provide expert panel discussions in the areas of regenerative medicine, dermoscopy, infectious disease, nail pathology, and onychomycosis, as well as general dermatology. As you experience DERMfoot, it will become clear that our entire team not only has a passion for everything skin but that it will make an immediate impact on your skill set and the efficacy of your practice!
