Inaugural JCMS Lecture Recognizes Dr. Christian Murray

OTTAWA, ON--(Marketwired - June 23, 2016) - The Journal of Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery (JCMS) is proud to announce the launch of the annual JCMS Lecture at the Canadian Dermatology Association's 91st Annual Conference.

The JCMS Lecture is aimed at honouring a contributing author whose work has attracted much attention in the last year by inviting him or her to deliver a presentation within their area of expertise at the Canadian Dermatology Association's (CDA) upcoming annual conference.

"For twenty years, the JCMS has been committed to advancing scholarly research and investigations through well-chosen and well-written scientific writings and reviews of scholarly interest to clinicians, trainees, and academicians in the specialty field of dermatology," says Dr. Kirk Barber, Editor in Chief of the JCMS. "We are proud to recognize our first lecturer, Dr. Christian Murray for his contributions to the education of clinicians in the area of practical surgical techniques and anatomy with 28 publications in JCMS over the past 10 years."

The inaugural presentation was held at the Canadian Dermatology Association's 91st Annual Conference in Saskatoon on Thursday, June 23. "It was an honour to be the first lecturer at this new initiative from the JCMS," says Dr. Christian Murray. "I hope I made this first lecture practical and interesting. I have a passion for teaching surgical skills and am excited about new technologies that are making this easier. I have published several articles on technical skills within the JCMS, and look forward to the journal's new format which allows video and social media to enhance the learning experience."

The invited lecturer will be officially recognized in both CDA and JCMS publications. An award honouring the lecturer was presented by the Editor in Chief of the JCMS during the CDA annual conference.
