BGMC’s Dr. Julian Moore Awarded Daniel Koprince National Award in Dermatology
Fort Lauderdale, FL - Dr. Julian Moore has received the Daniel Koprince National Award in Dermatology for his clinical case presentation of Bullous Sweets Syndrome at the annual American Osteopathic College of Dermatology Mid-Year Meeting and Scientific Seminar held in Sedona, Arizona on April 15, 2010.
The Koprince Award, touted as the highest honor for a resident in dermatology, is a highly coveted accolade reserved for one outstanding resident case presentation per year. After careful review by the evaluation committee, Dr. Moore was selected from more than 100 applicants as the recipient of the award.
The case presentation came as a result of a dermatology consult from Broward General Medical Center. Sweets Syndrome, also known as acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis, is an uncommon condition, and can be an indication of more serious underlying conditions, including an association with hematologic malignancy. Dr. Moore quickly realized the gravity of the consult and, along with his colleagues, effectively diagnosed and treated the patient.
“Dr. Moore’s achievement is testament to the quality of our residency training program, highlighting the rich clinical experience that benefit our dermatology residents throughout their years of training at Nova Southeastern University and Broward General Medical Center,” said Dr. Stanley Skopit, Director of the Dermatology Residency Training Program at Nova Southeastern University, College of Osteopathic Medicine in conjunction with Broward General Medical Center. “We are proud that Dr. Moore represents our residency training program and hospital.”
