Dermatology for Primary Care

Following this course, the participant should be able to appraise the various etiologies and pathogens for the more common lesions; distinguish the characteristics of commonly seen skin disorders and develop an appropriate differential that leads to the most probable diagnosis; apply a treatment plan and follow-up procedure that will enable the practicing physician to effectively treat many disorders. This activity is expected to result in improved competence in making appropriate diagnosis and providing effective treatment and referral or follow-up care with the overall goal of improving patient outcomes.

Since this specialty has few guidelines or evidence-based recommendations, with the exception of acne and the use of biologics, the emphasis will be based on generally accepted standards and consensus, unless otherwise indicated in the specific learning objectives, with a focus on recommendations for diagnosis, treatment and when to refer. Since Dermatologic problems often reveal systemic disorders, and the skin is the largest and most accessible "organ", this course was designed as a review and update for practicing physicians and is applicable to most specialties.
