Dermatological lectures

As a part of the Clinical Medical Lectures, Dermatology Lectures for 4th-year medical students are given in a weeklong intensive course of 15 lectures. It’s impossible for so few lectures to cover all areas of clinical practice in dermatology. The lectures focus on prompting interest in dermatological science and improving the motivation of students with respect to dermatology by introducing them to cutting-edge clinical and research themes pursued by the Hokkaido University Department of Dermatology. The post-lecture questionnaires revealed that the lecturers, including Dr. Natsuga, who returned from his overseas research stay, gave enthusiastic lectures. Regarding the lectures on individual areas of dermatology, the Dermatology Residency Program, with 39 lectures per year, is given at 5:30PM on Thursdays. It provides resident doctors and students with basic knowledge of dermatological science. As a way of teaching clinical practice, the program is useful not only for Hokkaido University students but also for resident doctors in departments other than the Department of Dermatology. It’s open to all Hokkaido University students and doctors. Feel free to attend the lecture.
