What is the Best Way to Teach Internal Medicine Residents about Dermatology?

According to a recent study from Southwestern Medical School, internal medicine residents learn more dermatology when they are given didactic lectures and multiple choice questions while on dermatology rotations (Cayce R, Bergstresser P, Hesterman K, Condie D. Dermatology curriculum for internal medicine residents: a randomized trial. J Grad Med Educ 2014;6:296-300). This study could influence dermatology curriculum for internal medicine residents in the future, since according to the authors, “…dermatology education is a substantial weakness for many internal medicine residencies.”
