DermatologistHave you ever had a skin rash that did not respond to over-the-counter creams, or a mole that you were concerned about? Dermatologists help patients with these types of problems and more, on a daily basis. Dermatologists are medical doctors who specialize in diagnosing and treating skin disorders. Like all medical doctors, dermatologists earn a medical degree and then complete several years of residency training. In addition, dermatologists may then participate in a dermatology fellowship or complete additional, specialized training in a dermatology practice. If practicing in the United States, dermatologists must pass the United States Medical Licensing Exam (USMLE), become licensed in their state of practice, and be certified by the American Board of Dermatology 🔥

Image #2 also describes how did you know that our skin accounts for 15% of our entire body weight? Skin, part of the integumentary system, is the outer shelf of our body and is the largest multifunctioning organ in the body. Patients may ask you as a medical assistant, why do we have skin on our bodies? How does my skin heal? What are the most common diseases and disorders of the integumentary system that a medical assistant may deal with regularly? This lesson in anatomy will be important for the medical assistant to know when educating patients about their bodies and assisting physicians with diagnosis and treatment of the integumentary system diseases and disorders. (thank you to Cassandre Tuttle having brought this to our attention).
