Dermatology Practical & Conceptual is the official journal of the International Dermoscopy Society.

Dermatology Practical & Conceptual is an international peer-reviewed, PubMed-indexed, Open Access journal that publishes articles covering practical and conceptual aspects in the field of dermatology. There are no submission fees and no page charges for submissions to the journal.


In this issue, De Bedout et al performed a pilot study om "Skin Cancer and Dermoscopy Training for Primary Care Physicians." They found that providers serving populations with limited healthcare access may benefit from education in diagnosing and differentiating skin cancer with the use of dermoscopy, which may ultimately improve patient care and reduce healthcare costs.
