Purpose: The objective of the OUWB Dermatology Interest Group (DIG) is to provide a forum for communication and accurate information exchange between students, residents, physicians, and program directors on topics pertinent to a career in dermatology; to provide a network for collaboration on projects and service activities among dermatology interest groups nationwide; to form productive relationships with our colleagues across all specialty interests, thereby increasing their participation in early detection of critical dermatologic conditions; to involve and engage students in service and outreach activities in the community; and to provide a support group for students considering a career in dermatology.
Goals: The OUWB Dermatology Interest Group (DIG) executive board has three main goals. These are in the areas of membership, education and community involvement. Our membership goal is to increase interest in the specialty of Dermatology within the OUWB student body and increase our student membership. We hope to do this through our educational goals which include the formation of shadowing opportunities for students with local dermatologists as well as the organization forums such as panels, guest presentations, and hands-on activities, which will introduce various aspects of the Dermatology specialty to students. Lastly, our community goals are to foster partnerships with local organizations in our community with which we can do activities with on a continual basis, and to become a member of the national student Dermatology Interest Group organization.
