About this book
This guidebook is derived from the author’s notes taken during dermatology residency. The essential facts have been compressed, simplified, and organized so that the reader is reminded of the key dermatologic diagnoses and treatment approaches and provided with everything that is most important to know in caring for patients.
Dermatology Simplified: Outlines and Mnemonics organizes dermatologic conditions into outlines by clinical differential diagnosis and by pathophysiology. This style of organization allows the reader to focus on a condition while maintaining a broad understanding of its place in the big picture. Diseases are also grouped thematically to reinforce understanding in complementary ways, and high-yield notes summarize medications, cosmetics, surgery, and basic science. This algorithmic, standardized approach will increase the amount of information the reader can retain more effectively than a random strategy to learning, and will be of great use as a resource for medical students and dermatology residents diagnosing patients in clinic, senior dermatology residents studying for board exams, internal medicine and pediatrics residents learning dermatology, teachers creating educational presentations for students or residents, and practicing dermatologists seeking quick reference.
