Approximately 85% of all skin cancer originates in the head and neck region and incidence is rapidly increasing. Most skin cancer is diagnosed and treated by family practitioners and dermatologists.
In case of more complex skin cancer also other medical specialists participate in a multidisciplinary approach.

This symposium deals with the process of diagnosis and treatment of primary skin cancer and its regional metastases. Also local flap physiology and planning is discussed as well as proper reconstructive flap selection and techniques for more complex skin cancer defects.

The symposium concerns a one day intensive course for residents and specialists working in the field of dermatology, otolaryngology, maxillofacial surgery, plastic surgery, and general surgery. However, also the surgically active family practitioner can take benefit of this day filled with compact information on head and neck skin cancer.

We hope you will be able to join us in the beautiful city of Utrecht, The Netherlands.
