Residency in dermatology
Over the three year period of training, our trainees are exposed to general and specialty medical dermatology for all age groups, procedural dermatology, and dermatopathology via a patient base composed of diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds and dermatologic diseases. Our full-time faculty provides expert instruction in virtually all subspecialty areas within dermatology.
Medical student elective
The dermatology elective provides students with the opportunity to develop fundamental clinical skills in the evaluation and management of patients with diseases of the integument. This is primarily an ambulatory experience in which students will participate in general and subspecialty dermatology clinics. Students will also have frequent exposures to acute presentations on the dermatology consultative service. Clinical training will be supported by a self-directed problem-based curriculum in dermatology.
At the moment, our training efforts are focused on the residency program and the undergraduate medical curriculum. In the coming two to three years, the department also aims to support accredited fellowship training programs in pediatric dermatology, procedural dermatology and dermatopathology. Please check back periodically for updates on our fellowship training programs.
Through partnerships with clinical services and laboratories within the health system and externally, the Department plans to focus its research efforts on translational, early and late phase clinical trials, and health services programs.
Some of our faculty’s research interests include psoriasis, lupus, melanoma, non-melanoma skin cancers, acne, rosacea and atopic dermatitis. For more details and to find clinical trials, visit the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research.
We plan to grow our research program in parallel with the expansion of our clinical services. Patients and physician partners are encouraged to check back regularly to see which of our studies are actively enrolling.
Friends and partners who would like to learn more about our research interests and ways to support these programs may contact Holly Koehler, MBA, at [email protected].
