I have just finished the lectures for the Dermpath in Paradise conference. Wow! Often at conferences you get one or two lectures that leave you feeling a little unfulfilled, but each of the lectures in this series was excellent, on point, and full of valuable information. I might repeat a few lectures in the next month or two to really let all the information soak in. Thank you! I have completed the course evaluation survey as well. As an Australian attendee, can I still get a CME certificate or a certificate of attendance of some sort? It would be great to provide as evidence for my CPD obligations. Looking forward to attending one of these in person some day!
