Course: Taking an Integrative Approach to Dermatology Practice
Taking an Integrative Approach to Dermatology Practice
Peter Lio, MD +6

Hear from leading integrative dermatologists and program chairs as they review simple ways to incorporate an integrative approach to your dermatology practice by use of patient clinical vignettes. As an experienced dermatologist, but a novice integrative dermatologist, there are some pitfalls to avoid and a learning curve. Interestingly, the process is somewhat easier for dermatologists as we are primed to incorporate novel and off-label treatments into daily practice, particularly when we encounter a patient with refractory disease. IDCP alumni also share their experience in the program. Learn more at get.learnskin.com/idcp
