Internal Medicine Clerkship. Available to M3 students April, May and June only.


University of Maryland
Baltimore VA Medical Center

Description and Goals:

Emphasis in this course will be made on the methods of diagnosis and treatment of conditions in which skin eruptions play a major role. Both outpatient and inpatient dermatological cases will be studied. Constant reference will be made to the relationship of cutaneous lesions to systemic disease. The student who elects dermatology will participate in the clinic and some of the seminars held for the residents each day. Opportunity will also be afforded to study the laboratory procedures used in this specialty and any current research. A brief oral presentation (on a topic of the student's choosing) and a final examination are required.

The morning will be spent at the University of Maryland Outpatient Facility and Hospital. The mid-day (11:30 to 1:30) will be assigned in various conferences. Afternoon sessions are spent in the Dermatology clinic of the Veterans Affairs Medical Center or on the inpatient Dermatology Consult Service.
