Hot Spots at Turtle Bay

At Hot Spots, we employ “what may be called the natural method of teaching, [wherein we] begin with the patient, continue, with the patient, and end [our] studies with the patient, using lectures and discussions as tools, as means to an end."  After Osler

2017 HOT SPOTS IN DERMATOLOGY
Turtle Bay Resort
Kahuku, Oahu, Hawaii
August 18 - 20, 2017




We are in the early planning stages for our 2017 program.  Turtle Bay has been a wonderful venue and is convenient for our Hawaii registrants. In order to keep Hot Spots an Ohana (family) we plan to limit the number of registrants to 50.  Please join us in 2017!

When the surgeon-poet George Bascom attended a CME conference in Colorado years ago, he wrote the following poem:

Seminar at Breckenridge
The peaks are frozen gold
above the gritty streets. Boots
grate briskly on the way
to lectures about lungs.
The holy heights
cry down to use, but inside under tinted glass
we file like mourners
to the conference room.
 Our goal with Hot Spots is that you don't feel that way! 


Dermoscopy

Dermoscopy From Zero to 60 A Comprehensive Dermoscopy Practicum
Essentials for Beginners and Intermediate Users
Friday, August 18, 2017



The first day of Hot Spots 2017 will be devoted to skin cancer diagnosis in  Hawaii.  In addition to an overview of the problem, we will provide an overview of Dermatoscopy and a practicum for beginners and intermediate users.  Gaining facility with a dermatoscope is an essential skill for all dermatologists and for all practitioners in Hawaii.

Hot Spots 2017 Invitation


Hot Spots Ohana 2017
August 18 – 20, 2017
Turtle Bay Resort
Kahuku, Oahu, Hawaii


  
Please save the dates for our 2017 Hot Spots program.  This annual conference was begun in 1987, has been evolving ever since and presently it has become an ohana.
 

We will have talks that stretch the attendees minds rather than the predictable academic or promotional lectures given by paid professional circuit riders that one can hear elsewhere.

We will continue to have the case presentation part of the program that has been memorable and successful in the past. We also will encourage younger people, students and trainees, to present material.

So, save the dates for a outstanding and congenial program.

Aloha,

Dave Elpern

Our 2017 program will be held at Turtle Bay on Oahu's North Shore.  We have organized Hot Spots in Dermatology since 1987. It is an intimate meeting at which the faculty and registrants have time to interact as colleagues rather than in a strictly didactic manner. We provide 12 hours of  Category I CME credits.  Hot Spots is not a business; but a gathering of people that, like Chaucer's student, "would gladly lerne and gladly teche." Please join us!
