The Dermatology Board Review presents an educationally beneficial review of Dermatology and intense regimen that will prepare attendees for the Dermatology Board exam, maintenance of certification self-assessment questions, and recertifying exam. This course is intended to be a comprehensive review of probable topics that could appear on the exam. The course will focus on general dermatology subjects such as basic science, basement membrane biology, dermatological manifest of internal disease, hair and nail biology/disorders, skin cancer, pediatric dermatology, drug metabolism, and many more. Sections will be commited to reviewing both exam relevant procedural dermatology and dermatopathology.

Each topic will be discussed in a one hour lecture. Learners will be able to access lectures via Online, DVDs, or Audio CDs at their convenience and comfort. Lectures will be projected in powerpoint format with the presenters’ commentary superimposed with each related slide. Participants will be provided with the powerpoint slides to provide opporturnity for note taking and ease of review, both of which enhance the educational experience and finally outcomes.

After completely viewing each lecture, attendees will be required to finish a five to 10 question quiz. Quiz questions will be multiple-choice or true-false and will include pictures derived from the PowerPoint presentation that are a part of the presentation. Once the participant passes the quiz by correctly answering 60% or more of the questions, the lecture is successfully completed. Upon conslusion of the lecture and passing the correlating quiz, learners will be given the opportunity to submit for continuing education credit.

Participants will also be given surveys as a form of course evaluation in order to further evaluate any missing needs and continually improve this ongoing academic program.

Board Vitals offers hundreds of Dermatology Questions targeted to the ABDERM and MOC:PQRS exam. Our question bank is specifically designed around difficult questions, with detailed explanations around the correct answer.

The logistics – the Derm exam is a long exam (8 hours) and has a fairly middle of the road pass rate compared to the other specialties. (90% pass rate average over the past several years) There are two major sections – the Dermatopathology and Virtual Dermatopathology Section, and the written Multiple Choice Section (300 Questions).

The vast majority of students that score at least 60% correct on our Dermatology practice questions pass the board exam. It is very rare for someone to exceed the average - 62% threshold on our exam - and not pass the boards. When using our question bank, a primary goal should be focusing on not performing in the lowest 20% of test takers. (Each question comes with an individual average score)<
