Pediatric learning modules

In 2015, the Society for Pediatric Dermatology's Education Committee and the AAD's Basic Dermatology Curriculum work group collaborated to develop pediatric dermatology specific modules to complement the Basic Dermatology Curriculum. These modules were identified based on research conducted by SPD members as topics primary care providers should know about pediatric dermatology but were not addressed in the Basic Dermatology Curriculum.
