Houston Dermatologists Are Talking (and Learning) About Us!

The achievements of UTMB dermatology residents and students was the topic of a lecture given by our dermatology program director, Dr. Richard Wagner, at the 2009 John Knox Dermatology Lecture and Clinical Conference hosted by the Houston Dermatological Association and held at The University of Texas-Houston Dermatology Department on Saturday morning, November 21, 2009. Dr. Wagner talked about the UTMB Dermatology Research Honors Program, the recently published UTMB research article in Dermatology Online Journal about dermatology educational opportunities for visiting 4th year medical students (Houston area dermatology residency programs are a national hotbed for dermatology medical education), the success of the UTMB Dermatology Interest Group (DIG) blog in providing communication and information about dermatology to our medical students, and UTMB's Dermatology experience with using teleconferencing to include distance learning medical students in our dermatology electives. In addition, the required Dermatology Scholarly Project for UTMB Dermatology Residents was discussed, highlighting Dr. Josh Dimmick's recent publication about SPF lip protection in a population of skin cancer patients.
