Emerging and established academic leaders from all of the various fields within dermatology have come together to redesign and update the most comprehensive study guide and online image companion in dermatology board review. Derm In-Review’s 2019/2020 study guide and online image companion match the new and pending changes to examinations that lay ahead for dermatology residents. Changes include clinical guidelines, high-def, high-quality digital images and delineation of information appropriate for the Basic, Core and Applied exams as outlined in the Exam of the Future.

The Derm In-Review study guide is over 400 pages and formatted for quick study and easy reference. It includes call-out text, tip boxes, highlighted text, mnemonic boxes and 300+ full-color images. The study guide is comprised of five chapters:
Chapter 1: Basic Science (including Immunodermatology)
Chapter 2: Medical Dermatology
Chapter 3: Pediatric Dermatology

Exam of the Future
The American Board of Dermatology (ABD) is restructuring the In-Training and Certification exams—moving from our current approach of emphasizing knowledge retention and visual diagnosis to exams that better emphasize the application of knowledge using clinically relevant case scenarios. The Exam of the Future will be a staged evaluation with a BASIC exam designed for first-year residents, covering dermatology fundaments; CORE exam modules testing more advanced knowledge of senior residents about dermatology’s major clinical areas; and an APPLIED exam given after residency, which tests the ability to apply knowledge in clinical situations.
