Basic-Derm-Curriculum-header.jpg Upon completion of this module, the learner will be able to:

  • Explain the short and long-term risks of sun exposure.
  • Screen for risky sun-seeking behaviors in adolescents.
  • Counsel patients on effective sun safety and protection.
  • Identify patients with photosensitivity disorders that may require referral to dermatology.
The AAD has partnered with the Society of Pediatric Dermatology (SPD) to produce a series of pediatric dermatology-specific modules for the AAD's Basic Dermatology Curriculum (BDC).  The topics for these modules were selected by pediatric dermatologists as topics not currently addressed within the BDC.
