Abstract

The authors have demonstrated that a relatively brief, nonstructured but intense exposure in dermatology is sufficient to double the number of common skin disorders recognized by senior medical students. The ability to recognize approximately 75% of the most common skin conditions after an elective exposure is especially meaningful when it is realized that 70% of patient physician visits for skin diseases are to nondermatologist physicians.
