Course Description: Goals: The goal of the Department of Dermatology is to provide an outstanding dermatologic experience. This includes ensuring they attain a basic knowledge of skin disease that will enable them to practice medicine and facilitate the passing of dermatologic questions on national accreditation examinations.
This will be accomplished by "hands on" clinical evaluation of
patients with skin disease under the supervision of dermatology
faculty and residents. The clinical experience will be complimented
by academic small group lectures, as well as
by a written and visual examination.
