Continuing Education

A speaker provides a lecture to an audience of medical professionals.

As an academic health center, OHSU Dermatology offers several ways for local, regional and national medical professionals to continue their professional education:

The OHSU Department of Dermatology Morphology Conference (Grand Rounds) is a didactic conference where complex or difficult patient cases are presented for assistance in diagnosis and treatment options, or are of teaching value to attendees. All licensed medical providers are welcome.

Conference schedule:
Every Wednesday
7:30 - 8:00 a.m. - In clinic patient viewing
8:00 - 9:00 a.m. - Meeting to discuss morphologic description, differential diagnosis review of dermatopathology, and consensus diagnosis and treatment options.

Location:
Center for Health and Healing, 16th Floor clinic
3303 SW Bond Ave.
Portland, Or 97239

Sending patients to the conference:

All community physicians are encouraged to invite patients with interesting or challenging skin diseases as well as those in whom there are diagnostic or treatment dilemmas. If you have a patient you would like to invite to the conference, we encourage you to register on the CODE website and to sign up to present a case. Case presentations include a review of pathology, photos, and patient history. There are patient directions and expectations on the CODE website, as well as a description of the conference. If needed, patients can call (503) 418-3376, identifying themselves as a morphology patient, to ask for specific instructions or directions.

OHSU Dermatology offers two significant educational lectureships that each rotate bi-annually:

Walter C. Lobitz, Jr., M.D. Visiting Professorship
Lobitz visiting professors are chosen because they embody the Lobitz spirit of teaching, research, scholarship and mentorship in the legacy of Dr. Lobitz, and because they personify Dr. Lobitz’s ideals in their own work. Lobitz visiting professors are individuals who have truly changed the landscape of dermatology through their contributions to the field of dermatology. Visit the lectureship page for full information.

Frances J. Storrs, M.D., Medical Dermatology Lectureship
The Storrs Lectureship seeks to encourage interaction and dialogue among attendees by focusing on provocative topics that impact the practice of medicine in general and dermatology in particular. The specialty of dermatology is spotlighted, controversial topics are discussed, fiction is separated from fact and myths are busted in a town hall like setting usually featuring a keynote speaker and  an interactive session between panel members and the audience. Visit lectureship page for full information.

The Virtual Melanoma Tumor Board is a joint initiative between OHSU Knight Cancer Institute and Providence Cancer Center. The intent of the program is to bring melanoma experts at OHSU and Providence together and to the community through a virtual platform.
