About the Course
Skin is a mirror of the body. Many diseases have their dermatological manifestations that give an important cue to the physician to rightly diagnose the underlying disease. Dermatopathology that focuses on the study of cutaneous diseases at a microscopic and molecular level immensely helps the clinician in this regard.
In this course on dermatopathology, various inflammatory entities of skin like lichenification, acanthosis, psoriasis, lichen planus, pemphigus vulgaris, bullous pemphigoid etc and skin tumors like squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma, melanoma and precancerous conditions are described in detail.

Course Delivery Format
This course is delivered entirely online. It consists of a series of comprehensive lectures by a professor in the subject, appropriately annotated with slides, animations and wherever necessary, interactive content. The delivery offers tremendous flexibility. You may pause a teacher while you refer to your textbooks (not includes) and to take notes. You may also rewind a segment to listen to the teacher again or you may skip a slide or two if you already know that bit. You may bookmark a segment that you wish to return to later, maybe to refresh just before your exams. While the lessons in this course may be arranged in a particular order based on our curriculum, you have the flexibility to take them in order of your preference based on your personalized learning needs.
While this course is to help you learn the subject from an online faculty, it may help you in several ways even if you are already enrolled in some medical, dental or paramedical school. Many of our students felt that the format in which this course is delivered has helped them to cope up against the fast paced lectures in actual class – it’s like having a TV remote in class to self-pace your teacher. Animations help understand concepts better by making concepts easy to understand… and difficult to forget
