Practicum: Journal Entry
Practicum: Journal Entry
Reflect on a patient who presented with a dermatologic disorder during your Practicum experience. Describe your experience in assessing and managing the patient and his or her family. Include details of your “aha” moment in identifying the patient’s dermatologic disorder. Then, explain how the experience connected your classroom studies to the real-world clinical setting. If you did not have an opportunity to evaluate a patient with this background during the last 5 weeks, you may select a related case study from a reputable source or reflect on previous clinical experiences.
