Asia Virtual Masterclass

Course Overview

The IPC Virtual Psoriasis Masterclass is designed for early career dermatologists who are making treatment decisions and managing patients with psoriasis and are interested in specializing in psoriasis.

Over the five weekly two-hour sessions of the course, IPC’s world-renowned experts will cover various topics, including the pathogenesis of psoriasis, new and emerging therapies, and how to advocate for your patient.

The Masterclass agenda has been carefully developed to provide knowledge for daily use to the practicing dermatologist in an intimate environment designed to maximize faculty/participant interactions. Through lectures, panels, case-based discussions and question-answer sessions, attendees will obtain practical and important information for their clinical practice.

  • Practicing dermatology within a governmental establishment i.e. university hospital, public hospitals, rural hospitals, etc.
  • At least 3 years of dermatology practice
