We all know that the ABD exam prep is time-consuming, inconvenient, and scary. But what if you could get the same comprehensive content that you’d see in the best prep books - without having to lug those books around? What if the peace of mind of knowing you’re studying the right material, at the right depth, was something you could carry in your pocket?

Great news! With over 8,000 cards, covering 23 different subject areas covered in the medical dermatology (emphasis on this one), surgical dermatology, pediatric dermatology, and dermatopathology, and the final Dermatology Board Certification exam - we’ve done all the hard work for you.

Curated by a top PGY-3 Derm Resident in close alignment with the Alikhan's Review of Dermatology, Bolognia's Dermatology 4th edition, Elston's Dermatopathology, these flashcards will help you study the right material, faster.

Where to begin studying?

Dermatology memorization - from Genodermatoses, Rheumatology Dermatology, Vasculitis, and more - can be a giant pain. Worse, it can be hard to discern what you even need to memorize. With Brainscape, you can improve your understanding of exam subjects FASTER than with any other service. Better yet, you can do so in a way that’s carefully balanced to reflect what is (and isn’t!) likely to be tested.

The span of these flashcards and their inclusivity is a major advantage and what separates them from the pack. Importantly, their organization is a key advantage. It allows you to quickly brush up in targeted areas. If you are about to start a psoriasis rotation you can quickly review psoriasis and you know just where to find it because it parallels most didactics models. If you need to review rheumatologic dermatology, you know just where to find it and can review specific diseases in detail. Likewise, memorization heavy topics like the genodermatoses, are organized in an intuitive way and highlight the key points.

But how much does memorization matter?

You probably already know that the dermatology board exams are tests of how well you have been able to absorb the vast amount of knowledge and topics that occur during your dermatology schooling. The ABD BASIC, CORE, and Licensing exams are built on a foundation of thousands of science facts. Without this knowledge, you’ll never even have a fair shot passing this exam.

There are few resources that can integrate the spaced repetition algorithm and platforms with a curriculum that spans the key chapters of Bolognia. Having it on an efficient, user-friendly, mobile platform is also key and allows on the go studying which is key for dermatology residents as we are often studying during pauses in patient care, lunch, and otherwise on the go with a busy schedule.
