    Psoriasis patients who are pregnant or those seeking a medication-free treatment may benefit from phototherapy. Vincent A. DeLeo, MD, talks to George Han, MD, PhD, and Jashin J. Wu, MD, about the joint guidelines from the American Academy of Dermatology and National Psoriasis Foundation for psoriasis treatment with phototherapy. They provide tips for getting patients started on phototherapy and discuss different devices for at-home or in-office use. While discussing avoidance of treatment pitfalls, Dr. Han notes that “documentation really is key when you’re doing phototherapy, and that’s one of the nice things about some of the newer phototherapy units. They’ll actually be linked up to a computer control that automatically keeps the treatment record.”

    Managing a private medical practice has changed drastically in 2020. In this episode, Candrice Heath, MD (@DrCandriceHeath), talks to Caroline Robinson, MD (on Instagram @crobinsonmd; on Twitter @crobinsonmd1), about her experience opening a new dermatology practice during the COVID-19 pandemic. They discuss important safety measures when establishing the office work flow, including offering virtual visits, streamlining patient intake procedures, cleaning examination rooms, and hiring new employees. They also discuss the role of social media in building a successful dermatology practice. “When you think about where people are looking for doctors now ... they’re turning to social more than ever. ... I would say that [half] of the patients that we’ve seen have been either from social media in some way, shape, or form, and then [half] have found me from my previous work within the city,” Dr. Robinson explains.

    Dermatology residents are utilizing apps for up-to-date and accurate information. Vincent A. DeLeo, MD, talks to Orit Markowitz, MD, and medical student Cynthia Chan about the regulation of mobile medical apps, with an emphasis on the three apps most frequently used by residents. “I do think that while we have to be hesitant in incorporating these technologies, I also think that the silver lining is that it’s going to help us also come up with better ways to standardize our education,” Dr. Markowitz reflects. Dr. Markowitz and Ms. Chan also discuss how residents and clinicians can be more diligent about the apps they’re using to get health information.

    Dermatology residents identify studying as one of the main culprits leading to burnout during residency. In this resident takeover, Daniel R. Mazori, MD, talks to Sophie A. Greenberg, MD, (@sophiegreenberg) about the firehose of information that dermatology residents encounter and how to optimize the use of the sources available for studying, particularly during COVID-19 from greater access to webinars and other online conferences. “Especially at the beginning [of residency], it’s easy to feel like there’s too much to learn. ... I would also anticipate some trial and error throughout residency so don’t let this get you frustrated. Some struggle is necessary in order to find your groove,” Dr. Greenberg explains. They also discuss how studying changes over the course of residency, from building the foundation of knowledge in the first year to deepening and consolidating the information in later years in preparation for the board examination.

    Cosmetic procedures are back, plus COVID-19 expenses get billing codes and burnout is up and income is down

    Cosmetic procedures are back, plus COVID-19 expenses get billing codes and burnout is up and income is down

    As lockdown restrictions are lifted, many dermatologists are resuming elective cosmetic procedures. Candrice Heath, MD, (@DrCandriceHeath) talks to Anthony M. Rossi, MD, (@DrAnthonyRossi) about the procedures patients are seeking while they have downtime as well as how physicians can safely treat these patients and conduct follow-up. They also discuss the prevalence of mask acne, known as “maskne,” during the pandemic. “We’re starting to put people on these acne regimens again. ... People who haven’t dealt with acne in a while or really never had it, we have to be putting them on a retinoid, a good skin regimen, because of all the irritation [and] the occlusion—[maskne] is real,” Dr. Rossi explains.
