Year 4 DERM4: Dermatology

Teaching Material for this Module


General practitioners report that up to 20% of their consultations involve some aspect of skin disease. In addition, signs present in the skin often provide clues to systemic disease that is otherwise hidden. Dermatology is a very visual subject and close observation and description is a clinical skill that you will develop during the course of the module. However, just like other areas of medicine, the diagnosis and management of skin disease requires a logical approach to history taking, examination and investigation.
