FEATURED VIDEO – Theresa Talens
The DEF is excited to feature this new video ‘How A NP/PA Can Help a Mohs Practice Grow: The Impact of a NP/PA Working with a Mohs Surgeon’ with Theresa Talens, DNP, FNP-C. Theresa is a surgical dermatology NP that specializes in Mohs closures and excisions. Working with a Mohs surgeon has been, by far, one of the most rewarding professional experiences for her and she shares in this video how it has benefited the practice, the Mohs surgeon, and her! The hope is to bring awareness to this practice model and open doors for dermatology NPs/PAs to work more collaboratively together with the receptive Mohs surgeons who sees our potential!
If you’d like to learn more, check out Theresa’s private FB group Surgical Dermatology NP/PA Community. It is a safe platform where dermatology NPs/PAs can connect with like-minded professionals and learn from one another.
