As mentioned previously, Dr. Thati is on the APDIM (Associate of Program Directors of Internal Medicine) E-learning committee and is spearheading an “App-of the Month” intiative. This is designed to help identify high-value smartphone and tablet applications that are appropriate for use by students, residents, and attendings in the hospital.
This committee has identified “Dermatology – Medical Student Edition” as the October App-of-the-Month. This application covers 32 high-yield dermatological conditions. It includes images of the conditions as well as key clinical points for assessment and management. The application additionally includes 190 questions with 22 case scenarios, a picture quiz, and 131 flash cards.
