Nine Residents

The Dermatology Residency program began on July 1, 2001. It has grown to nine residents since its inception. In the past, it was certified by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and has now achieved Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education Certification (ACGME). It is a three year, post-graduate residency that is completed after a traditional first year. Medical students may rotate in dermatology for a two-week block. Besides the Program Director, there are 13 attending Physicians in the program. They help run the clinic, as well as, train residents in their private offices. The residents gain hands-on experience on a daily basis.

Academics are extremely important in the residency program. Wednesdays are dedicated to Didactic Lectures, Grand Rounds and Journal Club. On Monday and Friday mornings, the residents are trained extensively in Dermatopathology and Medical, Cosmetic and Surgical Dermatology. Dermatopathology, board review, case review and cosmetic dermatology are all done on Friday afternoons.

The training for a Board Certified Dermatologist consists of concentrated study of skin, hair and nails. Emerging from this training, residents gain an understanding of how to approach and care for the largest organ of the body – the skin. Osteopathic dermatologists focus on how skin, hair and nails affect and are affected by one’s health.
