UTMB Dermatology Clinics Welcome POM2 Medical Students

The UTMB Department of Dermatology will participate in UTMB’s required POM2 (Practice of Medicine 2) medical student education class during the 2014-2015 academic year. Two medical students will participate in morning dermatology clinics in the UHC, while another will travel to the UTMB Dermatology Clinic at Bay Colony in League City. The clinics will host POM2 students on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday mornings. Every POM2 student will have an opportunity to rotate through our dermatology clinics. POM2 students will have an opportunity to interact with UTMB dermatology residents and faculty, and see a variety of patients with skin diseases. They will also have the opportunity to view dermatologic procedures such as diagnostic tests and the treatment of skin cancers. They will present their clinical experiences to their faculty facilitator during scheduled POM2 class meetings. This is an excellent opportunity for UTMB medical students to gain exposure to dermatology early during their medical education.
