The VGRD search engine was created in 2008 by Stephanie W. Hu, currently a dermatology resident at New York University, in collaboration with David Elpern, MD, Henry Foong, MBBS, FRCP, and Jeremy Kwock, MBA. This tool aims to enhance continued education in the field of dermatology through efficient, streamlined Internet searching of quality, peer-reviewed websites and sources recommended by our members, who are all actively practicing members of the international dermatological community. These websites reflect the best in dermatology on the Internet (included sources are listed below).

If you want to search VGRD or VGRD-Blog for cases you can simply add "VGRD" to the term chosen and the engine will find the citations on these web sites.
