Augment Your Care of Skin Conditions:

Cutting-edge, evidence-based education on skin-related disease

Designed to expand your competence and confidence in diagnosing and treating skin conditions including acne, skin infections, psoriasis, eczema, and skin cancer, the AAFP’s Skin Problems and Diseases Self-Study Package is an evidence-based, learning solution built to help you hone your clinical and disease management skills for patients with common and chronic skin problems —on a schedule that works best for you—in a variety of formats.

Use it to better prepare for an array of ABFM Family Medicine Certification Examination modules (including Ambulatory Family Medicine, Child and Adolescent Care, Geriatrics, and Emergent/Urgent Care) while also learning to use best practices to improve self-exam teaching methods and enhance new procedural and aesthetic skill techniques.
