DEF Biologic & Small Molecule 

NP/PA CME Bootcamp Series 2024


The DEF Biologic & Small Molecule NP/PA CME Bootcamp Series is now more comprehensive than ever!

Join us for our West Coast, Live, In-Person 2-Day CME Program


DEF Biologic & Small Molecule CME Bootcamp Virtual Program for the Advanced Learner, December 1, 2024

Stay tuned for more information and registration!

Join the Dermatology Education Foundation (DEF) for the DEF Biologic & Small Molecule NP/PA CME Bootcamp Series. For the last eight years, these consisted of one-day, quarterly educational Bootcamps with consistently updated content and discussion topics based on the latest available data, including discussion of atopic dermatitis (AD), psoriasis (Ps), and psoriatic arthritis (PsA), hidradenitis suppurativa (HS), alopecia areata, vitiligo, and urticaria.

We have updated these FREE CME programs in 2024 to increase our educational offerings and direct benefits to dermatology NPs and PAs, and ultimately, their patients. Within 2024, the DEF will host two (2) live in-person meetings and one (1) virtual meeting. Casting a keen eye on building the knowledge of the participants, the DEF will increase the immunology education with a focus on treatment targets and mechanism of action. In-depth immunology paired with case-based treatment discussions for initiation and management of inflammatory diseases will provide the training needed for dermatology NPs and PAs of all experience levels. Industry engagement and a strong focus on exploring specialty medication therapeutic options to maximize patient outcomes will allow attendees to better understand how to access these agents.

The ideal audience member will likely attend at least 2 of the Bootcamps, consisting of a basic-to-immediate course that is offered live on both the east and west coast and then moving to a more advanced learning program at the end of the year. At each meeting, the intended audience includes dermatology NPs, PAs, biologic coordinators, medical assistants, and their employing physicians. Increasing the agenda offerings also allows for a larger regional conference where attendees will travel by car, train, or plane to participate.

These meetings are tentatively scheduled to occur on the following dates in these cities:

Friday, November 15, 2024 and Saturday, November 16, 2024 – West coast location, TBA

Sunday, December 1, 2024 – Virtual Advanced Program

Our faculty, Drs. April Armstrong, MD, MPH, David Cohen, MD, MPH, Kara Gooding, MS, PA-C, and Joe Gorelick, MSN, FNP-C, present live in-person content with interactive discussion. Content is intended for NPs, PAs, biologic coordinators, MAs, and physicians.

Agenda Highlights include:

Immunology and Clinical Trial Review

Atopic Dermatitis, Psoriasis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Alopecia Areata, Vitiligo, and Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria Therapeutic Updates

Selecting the Right Patient for Initiation or Switching to a Biologic and Small Molecule Agent

Understanding the Role of Biosimilars
