The desired result of the Dermatology Board Review activity is to enable participants to adequately prepare for certifying and recertifying examinations as well as the maintenance of certification assessment activities. In order to accomplish this goal, the proposed program offers a comprehensive dermatology regimen that covers the entire spectrum of board-relevant topics. It is meant to be a comprehensive review of possible topics that could appear on the certifying exam. The will focus on general dermatology topics, such as basic science, basement membrane biology, dermatological manifest of internal disease, hair and nail biology/disorders, pediatric dermatology, drug metabolism, as well as dermatopathology and procedural dermatology. High yield, board relevant information will be provided in lecture form, followed by self-assessment board-style questions with accompanying answers/explanations.
Advanced Dermatopathology, including updates and emerging knowledge in the areas affecting this advanced subspecialty, is directed by Dirk Elston, MD, FAAD. Dr. Elston is joined by a distinguished faculty from leading institutions who cover other pressing topics including B-Cell and T-Cell Lymphomas, Unusual Skin Infections and Vascular Tumors.
