3rd International Summer Academy of Practical Dermatology 2013, Munich, 21 - 26 July, 2013


BACKGROUND: For the third time, the International Summer Academy of Practical Dermatology is scheduled to take place in Munich, Germany. Following the success of the last ISA meeting which attracted over 900 participants from 70 different countries, ISA 2013 promises to provide participants with a unique global perspective of the latest developments in practical dermatology.

Originally based on the concept of the well-established German Meeting - the Munich Educational Week of Practical Dermatology - ISA 2013 now enjoys an international reputation of its own which is underpinned by the excellent faculty from around the world. This year's comprehensive scientific programme can be viewed in detail on the meeting website at
