Course Packages and Masterclass
Two course package: The Dermatology Scribe course is designed to build off of the General Medical Scribe Training course, so these courses are packaged together. With this course bundle, you will receive two complete scribe courses and two certificates for one low enrollment fee!
Three course package: Patients with a pressing dermatological concern or injury may seek treatment at an urgent care. The Urgent Care course is added to the two course package for extensive training across clinical environments.
