These resources were developed primarily for my students at Edinburgh Medical School in the University of Edinburgh. They contain links to my online textbooks, videos, copies of figures used in some of the videos, and notes on what I have said in the videos. There are lists of questions for many videos and book chapters too, and you can listen to the answers (and questions) on the SoundCloud tracks provided.
Video and audio is great, but reading is fundamental, and more flexible for most things. All the videos are built on top of skincancer909 and ed.derm.101, although many may find it easier to watch the videos first.
Skincancer909: a textbook and atlas of skin cancer for medical students
My open access textbook of skin cancer skincancer909 is here. It was updated in January 2018. There is an online atlas to accompany it (click here). There are also video playlists for all the skincancer909 videos on YouTube here.
ed.derm.101: a PDF textbook of dermatology with curated image links
My open access textbook ed.derm.101 is here in a PDF. Although a PDF, it has hyperlinks to over 500 curated images from across the web, and hypertext links to SoundCloud recordings and videos. You can of course download it.
Q & A with audio
Both skincancer909 and ed.derm.101 have large numbers of questions at the end of many chapters. You can download PDFs of the questions and answers, but I also provide audio answers which allow me to be more discursive. There are links to these audio answers in the texts, but these are also gathered as two playlists on SoundCloud:
I have had intermittent problems with some of the embedded SoundCloud tracks using Safari, but not Chrome or Firefox. If you cannot use Chrome of Firefox, you can click on the ‘go to Soundcloud link’ which I have placed under some of the embedded tracks. You can of course just go to Soundcloud and search for ‘reestheskin’, then click on my ‘playlists’. Nobody else goes by that moniker, not even in the darkest Valleys. You can download the audio recordings too.
If there are typos or things that do not work, please let me know.
