Dermatology for Primary Care Providers: How to Think & Act Like a Dermatologist

September 29, 2021

Up to two thirds of patients with a primary skin complaint present to primary care doctors. Despite this, primary care doctors get 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, we aim to increase skill and confidence with the most common skin disorders a primary care doctor will encounter.

Target Audience

Physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, residents, fellows and medical students 

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the approach to a patient with a rash, including creating appropriate differentials
  • Describe different treatment options for the most common skin disorders, and choose when each might be most appropriate to use depending on the type of presentation
