DAYTON, Ohio (PRWEB) January 09, 2013
Dermatopathology Laboratory of Central States (DLCS), an anatomic pathology and molecular diagnostics laboratory, today announces the release of its 2013 Digital Slide Study Program, an interactive learning tool to aid dermatology education.
“It's essential that the dermatologists and pathologists of tomorrow know how to properly diagnose a variety of skin diseases and biopsies,” said Thomas G. Olsen, M.D., founding director of DLCS. “That’s why DLCS created this tool and why we’ve been proud to offer it for so many years.”
This is DLCS’s 10th year providing the program, which is offered free of charge to dermatology residents nationwide. DLCS provides cases with unknown diagnoses in a digital format. These unknown cases are then organized into "study sets" and uploaded for review at the resident’s leisure.
The 2013 Digital Slide Study Program features an expanded 10 sets of 20 slides for a total of 200 unknowns to diagnose. Residents can sign up for the program online by registering at http://www.dermpathlab.com.
Dermatopathology Laboratory of Central States (DLCS) is an independent, national dermatopathology laboratory whose goal is to provide physicians with accurate diagnoses of skin biopsies. DLCS has a focus on quality, efficient service and education – all essential to our dedication to patient care.
