Dr. Bikowski is a 1978 diplomat of the American Board of Dermatology with over 30 years of clinical dermatologic practice (with more than 80,000 patients and 500,000 patient encounters). Dr. Bikowski is a physician with a passion for teaching and in his day-to-day practice he has diligently taken high quality images of the dermatologic diseases he has treated—monitoring individual therapies with data and images in a continuous effort to find new, innovative therapies. The resulting high-resolution Dermatology Image Library is the compilation of 30+ years of real-time dermatology practice. The data that accompanies the images creates the foundation for Dermatology Education and Resource Mentors’ interactive learning and visual memory store for all who require education in medical dermatology specifically, or a comprehensive, accurate resource of dermatology disease, therapies and outcomes.
An informative, entertaining and well-respected presenter
Dr. Bikowski presents to dermatology peers, residents, medical students, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and non-dermatologic physicians in all venues, including dermatology residency program grand rounds, medical schools, local, state and national meetings.
A world-renowned educator
In 1980, Dr. Bikowski originated, and to this day edits and directs, the Galderma Pre-Board Slide Seminar—the review course for board-eligible dermatologists to assist them in preparation for passing the certifying examination of the American Board of Dermatology. Over 85% of all board certified dermatologists have taken this seminar in the last 30 years. In 1981 he created and executed for the first time the concept of a “textbook self-instruction course.” Major medical text book publishers (McGraw-Hill) have followed suit.
Dr. Bikowski has over 100 publications in the dermatologic literature and is on the editorial staffs of Cutis, Cosmetic Dermatology, Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, Dermatology Times and he is the chief medical editor of Practical Dermatology and Practical Dermatology for Pediatricians.
