Myrtle Beach, May 3-4, 2019?

We are looking for doctors to share an interesting case presentation from their office, in a panel format. Please prepare a background of the case, include presentation of the patient, treatment plan and case outcomes. Be prepared to answer questions about your case from attendees. You will be joined by several others on the panel.

The types of cases to submit can include but are not limited to those that increase awareness of a condition, highlight proper diagnostic strategies or show an unusual presentation of a common condition.

Wondering how to start?
