 Department of Dermatology is also home to Dermatovenereology educational research section, a flagship of educational commitment in Fourth Military Medical University. We are recognized as a cradle of extraordinary dermatologists and medical students with interests in dermatology. We have been honored as “FMMU advanced educational section” for consecutive 12 years since 2000, “national premier course” in 2010, and   “excellent educational team of PLA General Logistics Department” in 2012. 
     Dermatovenereology is a major course in the curriculum of undergraduates, MD and PhD students in FMMU. Our classroom instruction is widely participated by 500 students from 10 majors each year, ranging from clinical medicine, dentistry, air force medicine, rehabilitation, to nursing. Most parts of the course are delivered by “FMMU premier instructors”. Courses are designed with 100% or at least 1 topic (no less than 20 class hours) taught by a professor or associate professor. Most materials and slides used in the classroom are available at China Premier Courses Online (http://course.jingpinke.com). Outside the classroom, we provide resourceful extracurricular lectures, online courses and other academic activities to help students learn on their own, including 6 dermatology and venerology websites, 1 online course, and 50 clips of classroom video. We also attach same importance to clinical internship, which is structured into a pipeline integrating field study, medical recording, pathological section interpretation, grand rounds and examinations. Statistics given by FMMU Office of Academic Affairs report an exceptional feedback from students with 97% participants satisfactory to our instruction.

    We participated in the compilation of 20 textbooks and publications, including state-compiled text book Dermatovenerology (6th edition) as chief editors and 24 other publications as editors.

    Besides diploma-based education, we also offer a wide range of trainings to dermatologists, from 1-year structured resident program  to all kinds of short-term trainings . Among them, Project 1111 is a national certified continuing medical education program, targeting to provide training courses to 1000 dermatologists from 100 hospitals at 10 regions in each year. The Project provides free courses, traveling, board and lodging to front-line dermatologists and departmental chairs to train their skills in diagnosing and treating common and rare skin diseases.
