We are both NHS dermatologists who have been through the struggles of getting into dermatology. There is a paucity of cold, hard data to inform potential applicants. Preparation is time-consuming and stressful. We decided to produce DermCoach to address this gap.
Furthermore, current teaching in dermatology is confusing, disjointed and doesn’t arm doctors with a systematic approach which is particularly needed when dealing with tricky cases. We are both experienced educators who enjoy communicating ideas in accessible formats. The status quo isn’t good enough – we’re here to change it.
SK: While I was a registrar, I shared an office with Dr. Fox at St. George’s Hospital. Despite my best efforts to steer clear of her, her constant nattering is quite infectious. I’ve seen her present complex cases and have never failed to be impressed with how she communicates complex ideas in an accessible format.
When it comes to the clinical aspects, we implement the best of evidence-based medicine to enable you to apply current knowledge for the benefit of your patients. No more bilateral cellulitis! (Well, mainly – we’ll tell you more when we meet!)
