ASLMS Hosts Choice Activity for Residents and Fellows

Free Laser Review and Clinical Pearls Activity Offered for Residents and Fellows

WAUSAU, WI--(Marketwired - March 28, 2014) - Laser 2014 will include a special Laser Review and Clinical Pearls activity for residents and fellows on Sunday, April 6 as part of the 34th Annual International Conference of the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery, Inc. (ASLMS), April 2-6, 2014, Phoenix, AZ.

This activity addresses the need for fundamental information and clinical pearls to increase knowledge, competence and performance with lasers used in clinical practice.

"This course provides a great foundation in lasers and light sources and their practical applications. It is great for residents and fellows, or anyone looking for a refresher in the field," noted Ashish C. Bhatia, M.D., Co-Director. Dr. Bhatia is an assistant professor of clinical dermatology at Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine and Co-Director at The Dermatology Institute in Naperville, IL. He is an accomplished board certified dermatologist and an internationally recognized expert in dermatology, dermatologic surgery and cosmetic surgery with expertise in laser surgery for scarring and cosmetic indications.

This activity is exclusively designed for physicians who are residents and fellows that would like to use lasers in their practice.

"I am thrilled to offer this comprehensive course at no charge to all interested residents and fellows. It is one way to give back to our specialty," said Jeffrey T. Hsu, M.D., Co-Director. Dr. Hsu is currently an assistant professor of medicine (Dermatology) at Dartmouth Medical School and Co-Director at The Dermatology Institute in Naperville, IL. He is a board certified dermatologist with expertise in laser surgery, leg vein treatments, soft tissue augmentation, and scar revision.

Expected learning outcomes include the basic science of lasers and other related light energy technologies, understanding of laser tissue interactions to achieve desired outcomes, and a discussion of lasers and other light-based energy technologies and their appropriate clinical applications, to name a few.

"This course helps to fill in any possible gaps that may exist in residency training and gives a very helpful and practical overview of laser and light sources in dermatology for those who want to successfully and safely perform these treatments," said Kelly J. Stankiewicz, M.D., Co-Director. Dr. Kelly Stankiewicz is a board certified dermatologist practicing out of The Dermatology Institute of DuPage Medical Group in Naperville, IL. At the Dermatology Institute, Dr. Stankiewicz continues research pursuits as well as a full-time general dermatologic practice that includes medical, cosmetic and laser dermatology.

Students and residents are admitted free of charge.

Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.

In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
