The online dermatoscopy course focuses on frequently occuring benign and malignant skin changes. By the end of the course, our goal is for you to quickly be able to determine weather a skin lesion is benign or malignant, as well as come up with probable diagnosis.
The online dermatoscopy course teaches you the basics of dermatoscopy in 90 minutes – and you learn to dermatoscopically assess the most important and frequent occuring clinical skin changes.
