International Dermatology Exchange Program

For more than 30 years, The Skin Cancer Foundation has sponsored The International Dermatology Exchange Program (IDEP), a unique weeklong conference designed to promote the exchange of ideas among members of the Foundation and dermatologists of the host country.

In March 2016, physicians and their companions traveled to Panama to participate in medical sessions and presentations on a number of topics including new research on skin cancer and skin health, diagnostic methods, surgical techniques, cosmetic procedures and more. Via tours and other events, IDEP participants also discovered the rich cultural heritage of Panama and its people.
