The Dermatology Interest Group aims to expand awareness and interest among students about the field of dermatology and dermatopathology through lunch panels, grand round talks, and volunteering opportunities. It is often very difficult for first-and second-year medical students to gain access to dermatology-centered patient exposure as during the first two years of medical school, there are no dermatology preceptor programs or rotations. The Dermatology Interest Group addresses this issue by allowing students to participate in the Venice Family Dermatology Clinic, a unique experience that allows students to function as members of a patient care team composed of dermatology attending physicians and residents. This opportunity allows students to practice the dermatology-focused patient interview, dermatology patient care, and patient presentation skills to dermatology attending physicians.
