Series 2 (DERMPC2): Reinforce Your Fundamental Knowledge of Dermatology

This CME program offers a broader approach to treating patients with dermatology needs on an ongoing basis, stressing practical problem-solving and disease management. Focused on total patient care — from diagnosis of common skin conditions and lesions, to developing a treatment plan and establishing skin care management — Dermatology for Primary Care faculty will:

  • Define fundamentals of the dermatologic exam, using real-patient photography to illustrate skin conditions from common acne and eczema to melanoma and other skin cancers
  • Pull from real-patient examples to demonstrate common patterns of presentation
  • Discuss how to approach patients who don’t improve and what adjustments to make when conditions change
