Educational video modules helped improve dermatology residents’ understanding of Mohs micrographic surgery, according to a research letter published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.

“Mohs surgery is the gold standard treatment for skin cancers, but it can be difficult to understand and teach since it is a very three-dimensional process,” Elisabeth Hurliman, MD, PhD, corresponding author and dermatologist at Zel Skin & Laser Specialists in Edina, Minnesota, told Healio. “We developed an educational module with real-life surgery footage and animation to help fill this training gap.”
