It has been documented that 30% of patients who visit a primary care practice either present with a skin problem or show the provider a skin problem during their visit. These lectures present a tried and true approach to the treatment of skin disease. First, primary and secondary and secondary lesions are identified; secondly, an appropriate history is obtained; thirdly, a differential diagnosis is developed; fourthly, office dermatologic tests and other lab studies are used to refine the diagnosis; and, finally, a treatment is prescribed. All lectures will emphasize the team-based care approach used at the University of Mississippi where all members of the health care team work together with a carefully choreographed approach that encourages all members of the team to work at the top of the abilities and certification.
Common skin conditions will be reviewed with this approach in mind including, acne, warts, psoriasis, benign and malignant tumors, drug eruptions, basic and advanced dermatologic procedures and mission dermatology in underdeveloped countries. These lectures will be supplemented with interactive, Socratic discussions of common dermatologic conditions and "Ask the Professor" discussions involving clinical material brought to the sessions by attendees on a USB drive.
Attendees will leave this meeting energized to identify dermatologic problems, efficiently diagnose these conditions and effectively treat them.
