Abstract

Although dermatology residents in the United States are exposed to Mohs micrographic surgery for the treatment of nonmelanoma skin cancer during their postgraduate training programs, following graduation they may relocate to geographic areas where no Mohs surgery services are available. An innovative educational model for teaching dermatology residents about nonmelanoma skin cancer diagnosis and surgical management with the aid of a dermatopathologist provided histopathologic frozen section expertise is described.
