VGRD 2.0

"And gladly wolde he lerne and gladly teche" Chaucer

Welcome to VGRD 2.0

This updated version of VGRD will allow more interactive postings by dermatologists. Virtual Grand Rounds in Dermatology (VGRD) was formed in 2000 to serve as a place for dermatologists the world over to meet one another and share interesting and challenging patients. One may want to ask a question about diagnosis or therapy, present an interesting clinical photo or post a photo or photomicrograph. We are a group of clinical and academic dermatologists who believe that this form of web-based teledermatology can be both personally and professionally enriching. VGRD has hundreds of dermatologists on our mailing list and they cover all of the subspecialties in dermatology.

We would particularly like to invite dermatologists from both developing and developed countries to join us and share your experiences with our members. Together we will be able to provide better care for our patients.

We think you will find the new case presentation format to be clear and easy to follow. If you have suggestions on how we can improve it, please let us know.

We hope this form of electronic communication and teledermatology through shared knowledge will help to enhance our patient care. Your participation will help to make VGRD successful.

Yours sincerely,

David Elpern MD
