The Conference of the Department of Dermatology is held
on Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. At the conference, active discussions
are held by the university doctors, doctors of
affiliated hospitals, junior resident doctors and medical
students in clinical training programs.
During the first half of the session, which is the clinicopathological
conference (CPC), the doctor in charge
focuses on an outpatient case and presents clinical photos
and skin biopsy samples, and all the attendees discuss
diagnoses and treatments. In the latter half of the session,

in the education of young doctors. There’s time for a
review, at which staff doctors deliver presentations on their
respective specialties, and time for an overseas meeting
report. In addition, special lectures by invited external lecturers
Experts in each area, mainly newly appointed professors
