This elective course presents an opportunity for medical students to learn the nature and scope of pediatric dermatology. Students will be active members of the Dermatology Service, participating in outpatient clinic and inpatient consultation rounds. Students will attend formal dermatology didactic conferences, lectures, and Grand Rounds. This rotation is designed in particular for medical students who plan a career in Pediatrics. You will learn about common pediatric skin conditions as well as complex pediatric concerns, such as congenital, infectious, parasitic, tumorous, and secondary disorders caused by underlying systemic conditions. The students will mostly interact with Dermatology Residents. There may be limited opportunities to work with Children’s National Pediatric Residents who are also enrolled in the elective. Most conferences will be dermatologic in nature although there may be limited opportunities to attend general pediatric conferences on the 2 days at Children’s. Personal transportation is required to attend clinics in Spring Valley, Georgetown & Children’s. No weekends or call. Adult Dermatology (MED 380) recommended.
