Welcome to the Dell Medical School Dermatology Residency! The residency program was founded in 2008 and has steadily grown to where it is today. Consistent with the broader mission of Dell Medical School, the program aims to enhance the dermatologic care of residents of Central Texas and beyond through improved access to care, cutting-edge medical and surgical treatments, a robust research program and education for the surrounding medical community. The residency program is affiliated with the Department of Internal Medicine.
The training program’s mission is:
- To recruit talented, hard-working, positive, ethical and team-oriented applicants from diverse backgrounds;
- To provide outstanding, comprehensive dermatologic education resulting in proficiency in all aspects of general dermatology;
- To equip trainees to meet the dynamic health care needs of diverse communities,
present and future;
- To cultivate the humility, tool set and passion for lifelong learning and improvement;
- To produce future leaders.
Residents are the heart and soul of the Division of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. The division fosters a friendly, collegial environment and believes learning is maximized when people enjoy their co-workers and workplace.
Residents and faculty work hard providing dermatologic care to the local community, including people who have been historically underserved. Dermatology residents are also engaged in research and meaningful quality improvement projects. In addition to the regular didactic curriculum, the program includes a professional development and leadership curriculum as well as a wellness series.
The program aims to provide second-to-none, broad-based training, networking and resources that equip residents to successfully transition into fellowship positions, academic roles or leaders in community practices.
