Benjamin Bender Conferences

One Wednesday every month, residents prepare a Grand Rounds presentation on a cutting-edge topic for our Benjamin Bender Conference. The Conference is given in memory of Dr. Benjamin Bender, Clinical Professor of Dermatology, who devoted his life to teaching clinical dermatology to medical students and residents at Downstate. In conjunction with the Benjamin Bender Presentations, residents also present unique and educational dermatology cases, drawn from their own clinic and consult patients.
