Conference
 
The Undergraduate Dermatology workstream held their 2nd conference with undergraduate Teaching Leads on 6th March 2018. It provided the opportunity for collaboration between national undergraduate Teaching leads as well as exploration of challenges and innovations in undergraduate education. An agenda and select presentations from the day can be found below.

Foundation Masterclass in Dermatology
 

The undergraduate workstream organised the inaugural “Foundation Masterclass” in London in 2019 which received excellent feedback. Delegates reported feeling more confident in recognising life-threatening skin presentations, discriminating between benign and malignant skin lesions, and prescribing topical therapies after attending the workshop. 

The workshop focuses on how to deliver care in general practice and acute environments. The learning outcomes for this event will align with the Foundation programme curriculum using interactive case-based learning. 

The workstream will be running the Foundation Masterclasses virtually  on 19 June 2021. The workshop is full but you can leave your details for the waiting list here.

This 1-day course provides dermatology education tailored to the needs of foundation doctors irrespective of future specialisation, preparing you to manage patients with skin disease safely and effectively, supporting you for both hospital and community rotations. 

Large group teaching includes:

  • Emergency dermatology
  • Decision making in dermatology
  • When to refer
  • Prescribing topical therapies 

Small group case-based learning workshops include:

  • Drug rashes
  • Skin cancer
  • Skin infections
