PGY4 Completes Dermatology Scholarly Project in Record Time!

Congratulations to our current chief scheduling dermatology resident, Dr. Lindsey Hunter-Ellul, who presented her scholarly research project entitled, “Prescription Practices among Texas Dermatologists"
to the entire dermatology department and rotating medical students last week. After obtaining expedited approval from the Institutional Review Board for her anonymous professional survey and receiving permission from the Texas Dermatological Society (TDS), she surveyed members of the TDS at their annual spring meeting to compare prescription practices of dermatologists in private and academic settings. A detailed report about her findings will be published in an upcoming Texas Dermatological Society's Newsletter. Her faculty mentor on this project was Dr. Richard Wagner and she was also helped by Martin Tom (UTMB MS-IV) and Gwen Baillargeon from the UTMB Office of Biostatistics. All UTMB Dermatology resident are required to complete a scholarly project of their choosing over the course of their training as part of their graduation requirements. UTMB dermatology scholarly research projects must be presented to the department by April each academic year, but Dr. Hunter-Ellul was well ahead of schedule!
