Procedural Dermatology Fellowship
A one-year fellowship in Mohs Micrographic Surgery and cutaneous oncology was initiated in July 1999 under the direction of Dr. Mary Maloney. The Mohs fellow is an active participant in all aspects of surgical care, from tumor removal to reconstruction. Fellows also gain extensive experience with post-operative wound management and dermabrasion. The Mohs fellow is highly involved in resident teaching, providing didactic lectures and helping to precept a resident surgery clinic. Starting July of 2010 we have transitioned to an ACGME accredited procedural dermatology fellowship. In addition to training in Mohs surgery, the fellow is trained in laser and cosmetic procedures including botulinum toxin, chemical peels, and dermal fillers.
Pediatric Dermatology Fellowship
A one or two year fellowship in pediatric dermatology was initiated in July 2003. Clinical fellowships and combined clinical/research options are available. The fellows participate in busy general pediatric dermatology clinics, inpatient consultations on the pediatric service and NICU, pediatric laser and surgical clinics. Fellows are involved in teaching pediatric and dermatology residents. There are unique opportunities to learn from twice monthly multidisciplinary Epidermolysis Bullosa clinics and Genodermatosis specialty clinics six times per year. There is much exposure to pediatric laser procedures and opportunities to perform pediatric dermatologic surgery with our Mohs surgeons. The staff includes two board certified pediatric dermatologists (Leah Belazarian, MD and Karen Wiss, MD) and is part of the UMass Dermatology Division and Children’s Medical Center. Highlights of the fellowship include a very dynamic group, busy outpatient clinics, location in the greater Boston area, and excellent racial/socioeconomic mix of patients. Our fellowship is ABD-approved and available to those without previous pediatric training.
