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.
