Additional BDC tools for educators

A set of validated test questions that aligns with the Medical Student Core Curriculum's (MSCC) goals and objectives is available to AAD members to use for end-of-rotation tests. These questions differ from the Learner’s Quiz questions at the end of each module, but cover the same topics.

To ensure the security of these test questions, this document is to be used as a controlled test item and is not to be shared publicly or distributed.

    The AAD has partnered with the Society of Pediatric Dermatology (SPD) to produce a series of pediatric dermatology-specific modules for the AAD's Basic Dermatology Curriculum (BDC).  The topics for these modules were selected by pediatric dermatologists as topics not currently addressed within the BDC.
