Dermatology Interest Group (DIGA)
The purpose of the Dermatology Interest Group (DIGA) is to educate medical students about the field of dermatology. The goals of the group are to expose medical students to the field, to help students make connections with faculty members in the department and to raise awareness of dermatologic issues. DIGA students are involved with community outreach programs and events teaching skin cancer awareness and prevention to adolescent through adults. DIGA students are also involved with the new Sun Protection Outreach by Students (SPOTS) program designed to teach teens and school-age children about prevention and early detection of skin cancer. This group is not limited to students interested in dermatology; we encourage all students to attend monthly meetings with guest speakers involved with dermatology, in order to learn how this specialty applies to every field of medicine. In addition, this group will help students get involved in dermatologic research and partner with students on improving their residency applications.
