This dermatology skincare specialist job task analysis will be at the 10th Anniversary Meeting - March 19-21, 2012. Its purpose is to consider the design and/or need of a certification for skin care specialists working in a dermatology practice. Don't miss out on this opportunity to have your opinion put on record.

Meeting open to members and non-members

This interactive session will ask the attendees to perform a self-assessment of their current daily job tasks in their dermatology practice. Using a questionnaire the attendees will network in groups work to build a consensus of job skills and if it the task is better learned on-site such as learning a new technology or procedure or would be considered a basic skill. By evaluating existing skill sets, the SDSS will be able to determine educational goals to meet future challenges and provide a benchmark for dermatology skincare specialists.
