Dermatological lectures

These lectures are for 4th-year students who are preparing for clinical training. In 2017, as in usual years, 15 lectures, each followed by a test, were given. The lectures were held in June, which was a difference from the previous year. The greatest feature of these lectures is that they aren’t given in a simple, systematic way; they’re given based on the lecturers’ own choices of theme and content. And not only do the staff doctors who lecture evaluate the students by test, but those students also evaluate the lecturing doctors. So the lectures need to be polished up every year. The lectures are among the many ways in which the staff members apply themselves. I expect that these lectures gave many students a clearer vision of what it means to be a doctor and fostered their interest in dermatology.
