LearnDerm offers free educational resources to supplement medical school curricula in dermatology. The LearnDerm Tutorial consists of a set of five lessons, covering skin examination, lesion identification, body location and distribution, configurations, and variations in morphology. From the page linked above, visitors can click "Get Started" to dive into the tutorial or use the "Lessons" drop-down menu to navigate to any of the five lessons or the follow-up quizzes. Each lesson provides an overview of the contents, definitions of key terms and techniques, and visual reference materials to aid learning. Lesson contents can be navigated using forward and back arrows. For example, the Skin Exam lesson explains how to perform a complete skin exam, including preparation of the exam space, areas of the body to examine, palpation of the skin, diascopy, and examination of the texture and size of skin features. The full tutorial should take 60-90 minutes to complete. The LearnDerm visualizations were developed by VisualDX and produced under the supervision of an editorial team of doctors from the University of North Carolina, University of Rochester, and University of California Los Angeles, including Lowell A. Goldsmith, Art Papier, and Noah Craft.
