For Physician Extenders

The SPD has received many requests to help define the scope of practice for physician extenders working with Pediatric Dermatologists. In response, the Workforce Committee developed guidelines that were approved by the SPD Executive Committee. These guidelines are not intended as a mandate, but rather were created to assist Pediatric Dermatologists in their practice.

Guidelines covering the pathogenesis, patient assessment, treatment plan and patient/parent counseling for:

  • Acne
  • Atopic Dermatitis
  • Verrucae Vulgaris (Common Warts)
  • Molluscum Contagiosum
