Book it

Log into your account, go to the “Book a workshop” tab and follow the instructions there. You must book your Workshop before 2 April 2019.

Each participant can go to one Workshop. The number of available places at any given Workshop is limited. The places at our Workshops are given on a first come, first served basis. This means that all the participants who paid the fee have equal chances. Workshops will be held only with a minimum of 3 participants. You can participate only in the Workshops you have booked and to which you have been accepted. In order to receive your Certificate of Participation, you must book one Workshop and you must attend it. This is just a quick overview – for all the details, be sure to revisit our Terms & Conditions.

If you want to book a Workshop now and you plan to submit an Abstract later (but before the Abstract Submission Deadline), you should pay the Presenting Author Fee. By paying the Presenting Author Fee you assume full responsibility for submitting an abstract before 5 March 2018. Please note that if you do not submit an abstract, any Workshop booking gets cancelled, your account becomes inactive and you do not get a refund. More about this here.

You are allowed to do this twice – see the instructions in the “Book a workshop” tab in My Account.

You can do that if you pay the ExtraWorkshop Fee (20 EUR / 90 RON) before 1 April 2019 (23:59 GMT +2). You can pay the ExtraWorkshop Fee together with your initial payment or at a later time. In order to pay for a second workshop at a later time, you have to log into your account, go to the “Payment” tab and follow the instructions there. You can proceed to book your second Workshop immediately. You must book your second Workshop before 2 April 2019 (23:59 GMT +2). You are free to book any Workshop, as long as there are available places (the number of available places at any given Workshop is limited). The places are given on a first-come, first-served basis (this means that all the participants who paid their fees have equal chances, regardless of whether it is their first or second Workshop).

Emergency contact: Anca Adelina Mariniuc | +40786931986

Must bring: Lab coat / Scrub top

Description: Dermoscopy is a modern non-invasive diagnostic tool that plays an important role in skin cancer diagnosis. Training in dermoscopy can last as little as one hour or as long as years of study, the level of expertise being proportional to the time spent training. Well trained dermatologists can accurately diagnose skin tumors using dermoscopy examination, but the ultimate role of dermoscopy is not to diagnose, but to decide if a lesion should be left on site and followed up or if it is at risk and needs to be excised. This workshop will focus on the basics of dermoscopy and on practical aspects of dermoscopy examination. Participants will have the opportunity to perform simple and digital dermoscopy themselves and test on themselves the dermoscopy diagnostic algorithms in skin lesions.

Description: Attend our highly interactive workshop in order to learn the Skin Prick Test (SPT) Technique, a rather accessible way to find out fast and accurate if you or your future patients might have an immediate allergy! SPTs are performed on the forearm and read after 15 minutes identifying the presence of specific IgE antibodies (sensitisation) against allergens. By SPT sensitisation to a certain allergen can be defined as a wheal and flare skin response which can be quantitated. A considerable number of allergens can be tested at the same time. This is particularly useful for diagnosing conditions such as asthma, urticaria, anaphylaxis, food, and drug allergy. Ready to uncover high-quality complex information with this easy-to-perform procedure?

You will use complex devices to measure visual acuity & intraocular pressure and to examine the corneal topography & the retina. If you’re into gadgets, you’ll love trying all the equipment at AMA Optimex Clinic!

Description: Epilepsy seizures are dramatic sightings – but when you add real time EEG recording, things become clearer. Video-EEG is an immensely valuable tool, used to study a patient’s seizures as they occur. It is done in a safe monitoring unit, using an ongoing video camera to record the clinical manifestations and electrodes on the patient’s scalp to monitor the brain waves. At this workshop, you will use video-EEG to learn how to recognise a seizure and localize it. This information is then used to determine whether a patient is a candidate for epilepsy surgery.
