What is Derm for Primary Care?
DFPC is an online training program developed for primary care providers that teaches how to identify, diagnose and treat common skin problems that routinely present to a primary care practice.
Why will it be successful for a primary care practice?
Through visual learning, Derm for Primary Care emphasizes identification and pattern recognition to make the correct diagnosis. It stresses problem solving and disease management, and utilizes real patient clinical scenarios – including examples of patients who don’t improve, what to change and why.
After taking this training, PCPs will be able to treat patients with skin issues, increasing practice revenue by treating existing patients and attracting new patients with services other practices don't offer.
Meet Your Patient's Dermatology Needs
There is a growing shortage of dermatologists, with only about 3.6 practicing dermatologists for every 100,000 people in the U.S. With skin cancer on the rise and Baby Boomers getting older, the demand for dermatological expertise has never been greater.
As the first line of defense in a patient’s healthcare, primary care providers who offer competent dermatologic care can better serve their patients and reduce unnecessary referrals.
