The purpose of this module is to help medical students develop a systematic approach to the skin exam and highlight the importance of examining the entire cutaneous surface.
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.
