Rheumatologic diseases

Clinical Dermatology is the medical science of disorders of the skin. Often skin lesions and complaints are markers of internal disease and reflect the processes happening within the body. Dermatology has been termed "a frame through which to see the whole body." Skin consists of various layers. The shallowest (most exterior) layer is the epidermis. The epidermis is a stratified squamous epithelium. It has piled layers of cells. Below the epidermis lies the dermis and below that we catch the dermatological fat, or sub cutis. Dozens of diverse skin infections exist, with huge variation in symptoms and severity. Some of the most conjoint skin conditions contain Contact allergies, Alopecia, Psoriasis, Blistering disorders, Rashes, Atopic Dermatitis.

Compared to 2013, the overall demand for cosmetic procedures increased 3% in 2014, with surgical procedures increasing 1% and non-surgical procedures increasing 4%. Buttock enhancement procedures saw significant gains in 2014, with buttock augmentation via fat transfer increasing 15% and buttock implants increasing 98% compared to 2013. The number of men seeking plastic surgery continues to rise. 2014 saw a 208% increase in the use of pectoral implants and a 29% increase in gynecomastia surgery. According to the American Cancer Society, there are more than 2 million annual cases of basal and squamous cell skin cancer (non melanomas) in the U.S. The occurrence of melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer, has increased from 47,700 diagnoses in 2000 to 75,000 in 2009. While demand for cosmetic dermatology decreased during the recession, the economic recovery combined with an aging population is driving a resurgence of demand for cosmetic procedures.

Clinical Dermatology is for medical graduates wishing to specialise in dermatology. Students can  develop practical training in laboratory sciences relevant to skin disease. Clinical dermatology is a critical evaluation of dermatological literature on a specialist subject.
