Description

In response to the high demand of requests for Dermatology education and lectures from our colleagues, the faculty of the MGH Dermatology Department will provide a 2 day crash course for physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants on the basic triage and management of common conditions affecting the skin, hair and nails.

We will cover hot topics such as updates in skin cancer, eczema and psoriasis, pediatric dermatology, contact allergies, urgent and emergent dermatologic conditions, hair disorders, cosmetics, and telemedicine. Participants in this course will be taught the tools to interface more efficiently with dermatologists and manage basic dermatologic problems for their patients.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

- Describe and identify skin lesions properly so that they can more effectively consult dermatologists
- Describe basic dermatology problems, both the common and the acute/dangerous that are emergencies
- Discuss how to manage basic dermatology problems in their own practices and know when to refer to a specialist

Target Audience

This program is intended for:

  • psychologists
  • social workers
  • physicians
  • physician assistants
  • nurse practitioners
