2024 Fall Symposium

One of CalDerm’s main pillars is EDUCATION. We are committed to advancing the dermatologic practice in California by providing timely research and topical discussion that allows our practitioners to continue to stay up-to-date on advances in dermatologic treatments and procedures.

The Fall Symposium is the largest conference CalDerm produces and attracts over 125 dermatology physicians, primarily from the state of California with about 5% from other states. Nationally recognized physicians present lectures on a variety of topics that are of great interest to dermatologists, including: General Dermatology, Surgical Dermatology, Dermatopathology, Cosmetic Dermatology, Pediatric Dermatology, Practice Management, Residents Forum Cases and the annual AAD Leadership Address.

Attendees will not only learn from leaders in the field, but will also have the opportunity to learn about state-of-the-art equipment and products that keep them at the head of their field through our exhibit hall and focus on our industry supporters.
