The residency strives to provide a comprehensive curriculum that produces mastery in all aspects of general dermatology.
In the first year, residents primarily focus on general dermatology at the core sites. They also complete one month of pediatric dermatology. With supervision by an attending, residents manage their site and lead the care plans for their continuity patients.
The second year is heavy in subspecialty experiences. Residents train for two months each in pediatric dermatology, Mohs surgery, dermatopathology and inpatient consults, while staying involved in general dermatology clinics.
Year three is a blend of subspecialty and general dermatology training, with substantial autonomy.
Residents of all years also rotate through medical dermatology subspecialty clinics including pigmentary disorders clinic, cutaneous lymphoma clinic, transplant and high-risk skin cancer clinic, photodynamic therapy clinic, pigmented lesion clinic, vulvar disorders clinic, hidradenitis/follicular disorder clinic, hyperhidrosis clinic, pediatric dermatology/rheumatology clinic and vascular anomalies clinic.
Residents also have a half-day each week of continuity clinic throughout all three years of their training.
