• What’s new?
The inter-academic courses of onychology were created in order to meet the need of dermatologists interested in advancing their clinical and/ or surgical skills in nail pathology.
The three founding Members are passionate about onychology and teaching: Josette André, Nadine Lateur and Bertrand Richert.
Since 2008, there have been bi-annual courses (one in English, one in French) offered over two days (Friday and Saturday).
Friday morning is dedicated to nail physiology and basic nail pathology. This session is aimed at introducing the novice to basic concepts in nail diseases.
Friday afternoon is devoted to nail surgery on a large screen, live from the operating room. The audience may at any time intervene and ask questions to the surgeon or even to the patient.
Saturday is devoted to expert lectures delivered by a new speaker each year. Part of the day is reserved for interactive discussions by the experts and participants encouraged to bring their own cases.
