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

Webinar Overview:

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.

  • Describe the advantages and disadvantages of the various modes of dermatologic drug delivery
  • Provide examples of drug therapy for specific, common dermatologic conditions
