Most good things in live require financial support. This project is not different. Dermpedia needs software, hardware, hosting, licences, AV equipment, support of staff salaries, etc. Therefore, it is fair to ask the beneficiaries of this website to do their part.
The CME-accredited Online and In-person Courses are self-funding projects. The subscription is needed to support the website, live microscopic sessions (i.e. Consults) and workshops.
The subscription is required to:
access all the recordings of Microscopic Sessions (i.e. Consults) or Workshops (some are fee)
register on the website and receive all Dermpedia Communications
The subscription is not required to:
register for a CME-accredited course.If you prefer to just register for an Online or In-Person course, go the the catalog page and select the event. However, we hope that you consider becoming a subscriber as well.
register for free live Microscopic Sessions or Workshops (with limited seating preferences will be given to subscribers though)
access free content
In addition, at the cost of two Starbucks lattes and a cookie (which you should not have, anyway), this subscription, will make you feel good that you support dermpath education.
Please note that that the first 10 days are free and you can cancel at anytime. Thus, if you are just curious, it is OK to register, check out the website and cancel.
As a disclaimer, we should emphasize that the Dermpedia content (courses, microscopic sessions, workshops) is specifically designed for the experienced pathologists, dermatopathologists and dermatologists. Dermatopathology Fellows will also benefit. This is not a board review website and some trainees may find the level of discussion well above their heads. However, if you are a trainee, please keep in mind that pretty soon, you will be ask to make difficult decision which are the subject of Dermpedia videos.
If you would like you Institution pay for your access (CME Courses or Subscription), please go to the Institution tab (www.dermpedia.org/pages/institutions) to initiate the process.
