The healthcare team model is an efficient way to provide high quality patient care. At Skin Solutions Dermatology, all Nurse Practicioners and Physician Assistants practice Dermatology with physician supervision of a board-certified Dermatologist. Dr. Pena communicates with her extended providers daily and is at each location in Nashville, Franklin, Columbia, and Pulaski throughout the week. All Skin Solutions extended providers undergo an intensive training for at least one year with Dr. Pena prior to seeing their own patients. In addition, Dr. Pena hosts a monthly medical journal club with all the extended providers to discuss the latest developments in Dermatology. She also conducts private meetings with each provider monthly as part of their continued training. Each provider is required to attend a Dermatology educational course annually.
