Essentials of medical dermatology course for residents

Last fall, the Academy launched a pilot, non-CME educational program, Essentials of Medical Dermatology, designed to augment resident training in medical dermatology. The Academy will again offer this program in late summer of 2013. Conducted by faculty members who are experts in the field, this course is designed to provide practical medical dermatology information to residents in dermatology training programs early in their educational process. Topics include treatment and care of patients with psoriasis, eczema, acne, rosacea, atopic dermatitis, patch testing, blistering diseases, and collagen vascular diseases.

To learn more about how to partner with the Academy on this extraordinary program, please contact us.

 

 

 

 

Share your story about skin cancer

Olympic skier Julia Mancuso has joined the movement to raise awareness about skin cancer. Julia has family members who are dermatologists, and she knows people who spend a lot of time outdoors are at risk for skin cancer – even winter athletes. It is important to get that message out so people know they should take preventative sun safety measures at all times. “Ever since I was a little girl, my mom instilled in me the importance of protecting my skin from the sun," she says. "I follow that advice to this day — on the mountain or off.” Watch Julia’s story here and learn her tips for protecting her skin.

An important component of SPOT Skin Cancer™ is increasing public awareness of skin cancer prevention and detection.
