Description

BACKGROUND: The explosion of medical knowledge, the influence of communications technology, and the pressures for health care reform challenge dermatologists to learn efficiently and teach effectively. OBSERVATIONS: The vast body of material on teaching and learning in the education literature contrasts sharply with the limited information on these topics in the dermatology literature. Gaining an understanding of these approaches to learning provides a foundation for the design of personal continuing medical education plans and lesson plans for students. Practical teaching skills are emphasized in this review. CONCLUSIONS: Learning and teaching skills can be improved through study. Successful teaching often produces positive feedback, which can lead to renewed enthusiasm for educating clinicians in the field of dermatology.
