  • 1. Name of rotation: Dermatology Department: Dermatology Course Director: Ronald Goldner, M.D. Site(s): UHC & VA Duration of rotation: [ ] one month only [x ] 2 weeks possible General description of the rotation including educational purpose, rationale or value: By participation in ambulatory clinic settings, residents will evaluate patients for initial dermatologic consultation and continuity care of their chronic skin problems. The residents will have close supervision by the dermatology faculty and residents in the evaluation and management of these patients. They will also have the opportunity to perform minor procedures important for the skills of the general internist, such as dermal scrapings. The purpose of this rotation is to acquaint the resident with the common dermatologic conditions that may be primary skin disorders as well as those that may result from underlying systemic illnesses. The recognition of serious cutaneous diseases that require consultation will be emphasized. Resident responsibilities, including interns and residents: The resident is responsible to attend all outpatient clinics as well as dermatology conferences. On occasion, the residents will also accompany the dermatology residents for inpatient consultations and rounds. They will have the opportunity to review histopathology specimens helpful in making clinical diagnoses. Educational Objectives: An expanded version of the competencies is listed under Core Competencies in Internal Medicine. Those listed here are specific to this rotation. Since residents may choose this elective during any year of training, PGY-1 goals and objectives are distinct for those for upper level residents, and PGY-2 and 3 goals and objectives are similar. During this rotation, the PGY-1 resident will: Patient Care 1. Develop skills in basic dermatologic pattern recognition. 2. Have the opportunity to speak with and examine a large number of patients with dermatologic disease. Medical Knowledge 1. Learn and develop competence in basic dermatologic description. 2. Learn basic knowledge of the structure and function of the skin. 3. Possess a working knowledge of the diagnosis, pathogenesis and treatment of important dermatologic entities including common dermatoses, cutaneous infections, STDs, bullous dermatoses, cutaneous manifestations of systemic disease, cutaneous tumors, disorders of nails, hair and pigmentation, and cutaneous manifestations of HIV disease. 4. Possess a detailed knowledge of the subtypes and prognoses of malignant melanoma.

Practice-Based Learning - See Core Competencies Interpersonal and Communication Skills – See Core Competencies Professionalism – See Core Competencies System-Based Practice – See Core Competencies Check all principle teaching methods used during this rotation: [x ] Attending teaching rounds [ ] Interdisciplinary rounds [x ] Patient management discussions [x ] Small group discussions [x ] Conferences specific to rotation [x ] Bedside clinical rounds [x ] Individual instruction of procedures [x ] Review of diagnostic studies, [ ] Other: ________________________ including radiology Describe the most important educational content, including the mix of diseases, patient characteristics, types of clinical encounters, procedures and services: The residents will be exposed to a broad variety of dermatologic conditions that would be commonly encountered by the general internist. Over 90% of the encounters will be in the ambulatory setting and some will involve inpatient consultations. Check the principal ancillary education materials used: [x ] Reading lists [x ] Pathologic material [ ] Radiologic studies [ ] Other noninvasive studies [x ] Handouts on relevant topics [x ] Articles from the literature [ ] Other: ________________________ [ ] Case studies Methods used to evaluate the resident and the rotation: [x ] Evaluation of residency performance and professionalism [x ] Evaluation of attending teaching skills and other attributes [x ] Rotation assessment by resident [x ] Observation of resident's clinical competency [ ] Observation of resident's leadership and teaching skills [x ] Review of the resident's history/physical exam, progress notes and documentation of procedures in the chart [x ] Resident's attendance of rounds and conferences monitored [ ] Other: ________________________ Identify strengths and limitations specific to the resources of the sponsoring institution: The strengths of this rotation are that the elective provides residents with an intense review of dermatology involving a large patient population and also provides the residents with basic skills that may be useful in general internal medicine. There are no specific limitations.
