What To Expect

If you are a college student in one of the health sciences, a nursing or medical student, a graduate physician in practice or specialty training, or a dermatology resident, this Library will help guide you in your search for a better understanding of the skin and its disorders. The links provided to academic or clinical dermatology and photographic websites should hasten your learning and heighten your knowledge and memory retention.

If you are a patient and getting ready to visit your physician or dermatologist, being prepared for your examination or consultation will ensure that the doctor will have the needed information to render an opinion or diagnosis and provide the best possible care for you.

We all are vulnerable to forgetting some important details, typing or handwriting out any changes in your health history as well as providing a detailed report regarding the onset of your skin problem, how long it has been present, and what you have done to treat it are essential. These details are the parts of the puzzle that allow the doctor to reach an accurate diagnosis. When these details are insufficient, diagnostic laboratory and radiographic studies may be required.

Hopefully, the information which you glean from this website will help in your achieving a better understanding of your skin problem.  If you are just browsing the Internet, we welcome you to our website and hope you will be curious to open its door into the world of knowledge and wonders of the largest organ of the human body---our skin.
