Inflammatory skin disease and cutaneous neoplasia comprise 10-15% of all consultatoins requested by general practitioners. Particularly in the inpatient setting, the vast majority of these conditions are categorized as "common" skin disorders. The integument system has a complicated array of primary pathologic proceses and unusual reaction patterns. For this reason, a rotator is well-served by focusing on 20 to 25 common skin diseases and studying them in detail.
Grand Rounds are held the 1st and 3rd Tuesday each month. Patient viewing begins at 7:45 a.m. You should encourage your patient to be here by 7:30 a.m. Physicians who are sending patients to Grand Rounds are encouraged to attend. Please go to GRAND ROUNDS SUBMISSION FORM for information pertaining to a patient or patients that you may be sending to us for evaluation.
