About the event


Join John E. Hoopman, CMLSO from UT Southwestern Medical Center Dallas in a one-day, didactic overview of laser and light-based physics. This course provides the physician or non-physician staff member an academic forum to learn the fundamental characteristics of lasers and light-based devices and how to apply those fundamentals to common procedures, improve efficacy while decreasing the risk of complications.  All fundamentals taught are based on translational research and peer reviewed papers many co-authored by John himself (62 total publications).
