The education you need, the format to fit your SCHEDULE. LIFE. PRACTICE. NEEDS.

LiVDerm remains committed to the health and safety of our communities. Due to a recent rise in COVID-19 cases nationwide, we have decided to postpone both the South Beach Symposium (SBS) and Masters of Pediatric Dermatology (MOPD) conferences scheduled to take place February 10-13 in Miami Beach, Florida. This difficult decision was made after carefully monitoring COVID-19 infection rates and thoughtfully considering the advice of experts and our trusted advisors.

We are working diligently to reschedule both SBS and MOPD to take place at a safer time and will update the site as soon as we have new dates. Stay tuned to our emails and social media to be the first to know when these greatly-anticipated events will return.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

MOPD Expanded will allow attendees to choose whether they'll come to Miami Beach, Florida, for the exclusive, in-person conference, or experience select sessions after the event, from home.

This expanded option allows our valued partners and provider audience to view limited, handpicked complimentary encore presentations from the event over the course of four days.

The full MOPD meeting will be recorded and available on-demand with CME/CE credits for purchase following the live meeting.

For 30 years, pediatric dermatology education has been furthered by the annual Masters of Pediatric Dermatology (MOPD) symposium. Bringing up-to-the-minute advances in pediatric dermatology to providers looking to further their knowledge, MOPD is a much-anticipated event.

Now, in the spirit of leveraging the most relevant platforms of educational delivery, MOPD is hosting an in-person and virtual event for 2022’s experience. Take part in the excitement before and after the event with even more content! Leading up to the event will be a number of can’t-miss webinars to bring the cutting-edge education you can expect from MOPD live to your home before you go!

Symposium Chair

Lawrence A. Schachner, MD


After completing medical school at the University of Nebraska, and pediatric and dermatology residencies at Montefiore Hospital in New York City, Dr. Schachner joined the faculty of the University of Miami (UM) Miller School of Medicine in 1978. During his long career at UM, he served as Harvey Blank Professor of pediatrics and Chair of the Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, was a five-time recipient of the Best Teacher Award, and organized the annual pediatric dermatology conferences hosted by the university. Dr. Schachner remains co-director and attending physician of the Division of Pediatric Dermatology at UM Miller School of Medicine, where he mentors medical students on both pediatric and dermatology rotations.

As a practicing pediatric dermatologist and leader in the field, Dr. Schachner is past president of the American Society for Pediatric Dermatology, past vice president of the International Society of Pediatric Dermatology, and past chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Pediatric Dermatology. As a result of his years of clinical and teaching expertise, he has authored hundreds of publications, most notably writing four editions of “Pediatric Dermatology,” a text widely used by clinicians to assist in diagnosing and treating pediatric skin conditions.
