Fast Facts for Board Review: Immunobullous Skin Conditions
As part of our commitment to resident education, Cutis is excited to offer this new monthly section with board-relevant, easy-to-review material. Each month this section will focus on the key facts of commonly tested topics. It will be a resource for review while on the go, for group study, or for last-minute preparation. This section is not meant to be comprehensive but rather a supplement to other study materials. This month we review the immunobullous skin conditions, their target antigens, and key associations that are vital to understanding this complex set of diseases.
Resident Corner: Board Readiness
Preparing for the dermatology board certification examination is an onerous job that commences with the beginning of residency. Dr. Amanda Pickert queried her colleagues for recommendations of resources that are useful throughout residency and during preparation for the boards. Her suggestion to residents is to start early; the more you do up front and throughout residency, the better prepared you will be at the finish.
Resident Corner: Implementing Electronic Medical Records During Residency
Although an electronic medical record (EMR) offers the potential for improving health care quality, efficiency, and patient safety, its use is debated and its implementation is highly complex with the potential for hidden expenses. Dr. Christian Halvorson shares his experience with this transition, discusses the pros and cons of an EMR from a resident's perspective, and describes some challenges encountered throughout the process.
Skin Cancer in Skin of Color [editorial]
Differences exist in the epidemiology, clinical presentation, and prognosis of skin cancers in skin of color populations. Among Hispanics and black individuals, detection of skin cancers, including both melanoma and nonmelanoma skin malignancies, often is delayed. As a result, there is a poorer overall prognosis for skin cancers among nonwhites compared to non-Hispanic whites. Factors that likely contribute to the delayed diagnosis of skin cancers in patients with skin of color include decreased access to care, fewer preventative measures, and public and medical misconceptions about who is affected by skin cancer.
