On-Demand: How to Think & Act Like a Dermatologist: Diagnostic and Treatment Strategies for Primary Care Professionals

Program Release: September 30, 2021
Expiration Date: September 3, 2023
Estimated time to complete: 180 Minutes
There are no prerequisites for participation.

Up to two thirds of patients with a primary skin complaint present to primary care doctors. Despite this, primary care doctors receive little training in this area. A recent review suggested “that even minimal increase dermatology training at the medical school level or beyond may have a measurable impact on primary physicians’ abilities in dermatology.”

Through case-based discussions, expert faculty will cover a variety of adult and pediatric dermatology related issues commonly encountered in the primary care setting. The aim of this course is to increase primary health care professionals' skill and confidence with the diagnosis and treatment of the most common skin disorders.
