Abstract

Medical students and residents often have little experience in placing or responding to dermatologic consults in the inpatient setting when they first begin training. Trainees often learn what and how to communicate through observation or trial and error. We propose that dermatologists can play an active role in facilitating interspecialty education and improving patient outcomes by teaching in a systematic fashion.
