There are 10 dermatology residents in our three-year residency program.  We have one Procedural Dermatology fellow. We offer elective rotations for third- and fourth-year medical students.There are currently two graduate students pursuing PhDs with dermatology faculty mentors.


Research

Our three full-time research faculty and their research associates and assistants provide sponsored research principally in the areas of the genetic susceptibility to melanoma and other aspects of melanocyte biology.

These faculty members are nationally and internationally known for their premiership in the study of melanocyte biology, especially in the important area of melanoma. They train future scientists through mentoring and research projects.
