Abstract

A virtual pediatric dermatology student-run clinic was initiated during the COVID-19 pandemic, when in-person educational opportunities were limited. The clinic's aim is to provide high-quality dermatologic care to a diverse, underserved pediatric patient population while teaching trainees how to diagnose and manage common skin conditions. In our initial eight sessions, we served 37 patients, predominantly those with skin of color, and had a low no-show rate of 9.8%. This report describes the general structure of the clinic, goals, and the patient population to provide an overview of our educational model for those interested in similar efforts.
