First of all, we will of course pass the knowledge to the students of the Educational and Scientific Institute of Postgraduate Education. We have already started to share knowledge concerning new ways of therapy and diagnosis of various dermatoses, as it is practiced in the world with our colleagues.
We will apply in practice as many modern therapeutic algorithms as possible because all the algorithms allow us to achieve more effective results in the treatment process. We also spoke with colleagues from France, the USA, and other countries. We discussed practical issues with them. It was interesting to learn about their experience of treating certain nosologies. We have already also used the knowledge they passed us and are going to use it in the future.
