Rural dermatology training and expanding access to care

Transcript of this episode is avaiable at:

Access to dermatologic care in rural areas is a growing problem. Dr. Vincent DeLeo talks to Robert T. Brodell, MD; Cindy Firkins Smith, MD; and medical student Alexandra Streifel about the influence of rural clinical experiences during residency, which may increase the likelihood of trainees establishing a practice in these isolated areas. “Rural areas are tremendously underserved. [Patients] are waiting months to get appointments. And so if we can increase the number of rural dermatologists, it’s primarily good for patients,” Dr. Smith notes. They also discuss telemedicine and its role in rural dermatologic care.
