Dermatologic Manifestations of Rheumatic Disease: Connective Tissue Disease
OER (Open Educational Resource)
Original Publication Date
Date of Submission
Connective Tissue Disease is a slide-based based learning module that goes over fictional patient scenarios detailing systemic lupus erythematosus, dermatomyositis, and systemic sclerosis. Included in this module is a slide deck filled with information for a lecture or self study, a practice test, a glossary of terms, as well as a summary of notes for quick studying. It takes approximately 25 minutes to complete. This module was created for use in the VCU School of Medicine M1 Movement block, Rheumatology and Dermatology sections.
It is part of the Dermatologic Manifestations of Rheumatic Disease project, which provides overviews of the identification, diagnosis, and workup for different rheumatologic diseases, with a focus on providing examples from persons of color (POC). The project is a tailored resource for medical learners that addresses a longstanding educational deficit in diverse representation. The OERs will enable us to train future physicians who are not only clinically astute, but also knowledgeable of and sensitive to inequities in healthcare. Ultimately, it is our hope that these OER will aid in fostering a generation of physicians who are truly patient-advocates.
