The International Dermatology Exchange Program (IDEP) is a conference sponsored by The Skin Cancer Foundation in an effort to further international communication among dermatologists. First held in Cuba in 2001, IDEP is an informal meeting of dermatologists in a collaborative environment. The conferences consist of half-day sessions, where doctors present information on the latest in skin cancer management, including diagnosis and treatment, surgical techniques, and discussion of difficult cases. The program features presentations on current dermatological topics as well as panel discussions. IDEP attendees have always appreciated the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with their colleagues from around the world.
