Suggested order of learning modules

Basic-Derm-Curriculum-header.jpgDesigned for self-teaching, the online modules allow you to go through the material at your own pace. Because each module typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete, you have the option of working through multiple modules in one session.

Students completing a clinical rotation in dermatology may wish to approach the online curriculum as a supplement to a two- or four-week clerkship. For this purpose, sample two- and four-week curricula have been included below:
