WRK W012 - MOC Self-Assessment: Cutaneous Infections

Tuition fee and ticket required for admission


Date: Sunday, March 03

CME Credits: 2.00

Location: Palm Ballroom 1

Time: 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Director: Joslyn S. Kirby, MD, FAAD


  • Clayton B. Green, MD, PhD, FAAD

Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • 1. Recognize common and less common (but important!) infections that involve the skin more effectively.
  • 2. Discuss the strengths and weaknesses of diagnostic tests as they pertain to infections of the skin.
  • 3. Determine the best treatment approach for the infections discussed.

This session presents 25 case-based ABD approved questions which apply towards MOC Component 2 self-assessment requirements. Answers are recorded via an electronic Audience Response System (ARS), followed by discussion of the case. Immediate, anonymous feedback allows attendees to assess their knowledge and identify areas that require further self-directed study. In order to fully participate, it is imperative that participants arrive on time. This session will cover several areas, including community acquired MRSA, warts, superficial and deep fungal infections, infections associated with HIV, and Lyme disease. Aspects of the clinical appearance, diagnostic tests, and therapies of these infections will also be discussed.
