Masters of Pediatric Dermatology 2021
February 4-5, 2021
Miami Beach, FL


Activity Overview

The annual Master's of Pediatric Dermatology Symposium (MOPD) is a one-day session, held prior to each year's South Beach Symposium. The MOPD Symposium was initially developed to promote and advance education surrounding skin diseases & disorders in pediatric age groups, and to foster an exchange of information between physicians and health professionals interested in the field of pediatric dermatology.

This year's MOPD Symposium will allow attendees to learn the latest treatment approaches, protocols, procedures, and tools needed to support children with dermatologic conditions, and ultimately provide better, more personalized care for this specific population of younger patients.
