The Worlds First
The worlds first application to use the collective intelligence of a Professional Board of Advisors to identify skin photos submited exclusively by dermatologists, dermatology residents and dermatology physician extenders. is the worlds first professional-guided search engine meant to enhance the efficiency and proficiency  of educating and informing dermatologists, dermatology residents and dermatology physician extenders by identifying their submitted photographs of skin promptly and precisely using the  accuracy of group or crowd-based photo identification.   After submitting a photo, the site will return the top two names of what the majority of the professional board of advisors votes believes best identify’s that skin photo.

Photo Identification, Cash Rewards and Wikiskin Atlas
Dermatological physicians, dermatology residents and their physician extenders participating in identifying photos of skin as members of the voting Professional Board of Advisors will compete to receive cash rewards based on participation and competence in this novel gamified process of collective-crowd intelligence.
This website will also involve the worlds first wiki skin textbook (wikiskinatlas) in which credentialed professionals who register for can update their and others knowledge by contributing content to the wiki.  Board members may also be rewarded for contributing pertinent  text for our  real-time wiki-skin-photo atlas.

Continued Dermatologic Discussion and Learning
This photo identification process and associated forum and  discussions are not unlike the board certification and re-certification and maintenence of certification preparatory courses, and the examination which board-certified dermatologists and dermatology residents-in-training must pass for certification and re-certification by the American Board of Dermatology.  This website process of group voting and discussion also is similar to the academic dermatology  rounds and regional dermatology meetings and industry sponsored conferences which occur in smaller venues each day around the globe using crowd intelligence.

Health Information, Academic Discussion, Education, Cash Rewards
Dermgrandrounds is dedicated to providing quality health information, discussion, education and cash rewards to our credentialed users via the World Wide Web.  At Dermgrandrounds you have access to a variety of quality photographs (photos) and some of the most qualified medical minds in the world.  We believe that by ‘gamifying’ expert knowledge,  photos, discussion and text we will motivate you to educate, identify and understand a health concept rather than simply by using standard traditional text sources and costly geographicaly restricted meetings.  To realize our goal of providing trusted information and photos and cash rewards to our customers, Dermgrandrounds accepts sponsorships and online advertisements.  We welcome any comments or suggestions you may have to make this academic collective intelligence site more user friendly, informative or efficient.
