The Dermoscopy ECHO program aims to better equip health professionals with expert-level knowledge to provide high quality medical care by providing training on use of a dermatoscope and the subsequent interpretation of the results.
About the Dermoscopy ECHO
The goal of the Dermoscopy ECHO is to teach beginning and advanced dermoscopic technique and interpretation to clinical healthcare providers, including dermatologists and primary care providers. This ECHO program aims to equip clinical healthcare providers with the skills and knowledge to increase their confidence in identification and decision-making for dermatological conditions to address the gap in the number of providers performing skin exams and making decisions about further intervention. Case-based learning strategies will be woven into each Dermoscopy ECHO session to help learners develop the skills they need to both effectively use and interpret the dermatoscope. Ultimately, participants will be able to make decisions about follow-up referrals, leading to enhanced patient care.
