Big Questions Answered

Gathering in Hollywood last month for the inaugural NewDerm LIVE meeting, dermatologists took part in a unique, fast-paced learning experience focused on professional and practice development. Covered topics ranged from choosing a fellowship to deciding how to incorporate; picking office equipment to selecting décor; and communicating with staff and patients. Discussion also included clinical issues, but with a focus on practical considerations and future directions in medicine. The faculty at NewDerm LIVE tackled a number of big questions facing dermatologists in practice.
