YOUR ASSISTANT IN DERMATOLOGY PRACTICE

The practice of dermatology is exciting and multifaceted but also very intense. Whether you are a young dermatologist or a seasoned expert, none of us knows everything by heart. Our task is so complex that everyone tends to forget something from time to time. In particular, when confronted with less common skin diseases, we need tailored tools to help us with difficult clinical work.

 

For this reason, a team from the University of Zürich (Switzerland) started developing DermaCompass in 2014. It is an assistance system and textbook with a supporting role in daily clinical activity. It helps not to forget anything about differential diagnosis, clarifications and therapy.

About DermaCompass

 

Whether in practice or in clinic, dermatology is becoming more mobile. We are constantly accompanied and supported by smartphones and desktop computers. Our goal is to provide an independent academic resource that can seamlessly be used on both platforms.

 

Dermacompass quickly personalizes itself to the needs of the user, making it a learning tool. Learning material can be edited with light pencils and comments at will and are available in this form at any time on desktop as well as smartphone or tablet. DermaCompass is available on iOS, Android and in the web browser.
