Faculty Adviser: 
Leslie Robinson-Bostom, MD

Introductory dermatology course for first and second year students aimed to introduce foundational principles of dermatology including common inflammatory and neoplastic skin disorders through faculty-led seminars. Students will practice minor procedures such as shave biopsies, punch biopsies, and suturing under the teaching of residents and attendings. In a hands-on anatomy lab session, students will identify, biopsy, suture, and review the pathology of their biopsied lesions on cadavers. The course will be graded on attendance and a 5 minute dermatology-related PowerPoint presentation given on a topic of the student's choice.
