January 29, 2014 – BRONX, NY - Dr. David Ciocon, Director of Dermatologic Surgery, Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Procedural Dermatology at Einstein/Montefiore, recently led an event for first-year medical students teaching basic dermatologic surgical skills in conjunction with the Department of Anatomy.

Following a lecture on facial and nail anatomy, students had the opportunity to practice suturing techniques and nail biopsies on their cadaver patients. This event was part of the Division of Dermatology's effort to integrate clinical skills into the first year curriculum. Thanks to the assistance of chief resident Dr. Laura Kruter and Dermatology Interest Group presidents Brandon Adler and Aimee Krausz, the event was a great success.
