To date, there are approximately 2000 distinct diseases affecting the skin with many variants. Although many skin diseases are harmless and asymptomatic, others are associated with significant disability, increased morbidity, and reduced quality of life.

The dermatologist is involved in the treatment and prevention of a wide range of skin disorders. They employ various investigations to diagnose and medicine-based or surgical interventions to treat various types of skin conditions. These include, but are not limited to, dermatopathology, dermatologic and cosmetic surgery, topical and systemic medicines, immunotherapy, and phototherapy. As well as seeing patients in dermatology clinics, dermatologists act as consultants to other clinical specialists or perform clinical or basic research.

This Dermatology Speciality Hub is an expert educational resource, intended for healthcare professionals, that provides credible medical information in the form of Learning Zones. These Learning Zones provide self-directed medical education about common skin disorders such as skin cancer, urticaria, various types of psoriasis, and atopic dermatitis.
