Dear Dermatology Interested Medical Students,
Logical Images, the developer of VisualDx, is offering complimentary access for medical students interest in Dermatology to VisualDx Mobile on your iPhone and desktop computer.
VisualDx is a visual clinical decision support system that covers over 1000 diagnoses. VisualDx users have access to over 18,000 images and clinical text relevant to diagnosing diseases of the skin, mucosa and eye. Unlike a simple search and look-up, VisualDx is unique in that you can quickly develop a comprehensive diagnostic differential by entering patient symptoms, signs and other factors.
Interested in bringing VisualDx Mobile to your Dermatology Interest Group? Chapter presidents should email Lauren MacDonough (email@example.com) with their interest and contact information including:
-First and last name
-Number of medical students involved with the local chapter
Logical Images will then send instructions on how medical students can register.
As part of this program, the VisualDx team is interested in the potential educational impact of decision support on mobile devices. After creating your account, you’ll receive a link to an online submission form to submit summaries of clinical and educational uses of VisualDx.
The received medical student vignettes will then be reviewed by a panel of academic dermatologists “blinded” to the submitted names and institutions. The most compelling summaries will be selected to be included in a paper to be submitted to one of the dermatology journals or medical education journals (Disclaimer: This is a survey, not formal research). The selected student(s) will have an opportunity to participate in authoring the educational intervention “case report”.
