Welcome

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

 

We are pleased to announce the 13th edition of our Onychology Course that will take place in Brussels on October 9th & 10th, 2020.

 

As in the past, it will be our pleasure to welcoming you at the CHU Saint Pierre. Prof. Bianca Maria PIRACCINI (Bologna, Italy) will be our keynote speaker.

Two parallel sessions will be offered on Friday morning: one entitled "Basics in Onychology", the other "A typical day of nail consultation, as if you were with us". The afternoon will remain a live surgery session from the operating theater.

Saturday will be devoted to lectures from the invited speaker and to subspecialty topics presented by members of our department as well as clinical cases from the Experts and the Audience.

Three new sessions will be launched:

• Expert panel on chronic paronychia •

• Resident’s Quizz •

• What’s new in nails? •

 

Please, save the date. You can register here.

 

We look forward to welcoming you in Brussels.

Best regards,

History

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.
