The program provides a structured, progressive learning experience that develops the attitudes, skills and knowledge that our graduates need to provide quality specialized dermatologic care in both inpatient and outpatient situations. Residents are exposed to private office, clinic, aesthetic, surgical, inpatient, emergency and under-served community settings.
We fully support resident pursuits of post-graduate fellowship. We are one of the few programs in the country to offer four complex medical dermatology blocks per resident.
Our exceptionally dedicated faculty engages learners in a safe and challenging environment. Most rotations are on a one-to-one ratio in order to support close working relationships and undivided attention. Evaluations and feedback are crucial to constant improvement and evolution and our program incorporates a rigorous, formal and ongoing two-way evaluation model to foster communication and learning.
Our residents report feeling extremely well-prepared for independent practice and we boast a 100% board pass rate.
