Research

In addition to dermatology faculty who conduct research, most residents have participated in clinical research and other scholarly projects such as preparing case reports, reviewing articles and developing web-based teaching materials. In fact, the ACGME Residency Review Committee commended our program on resident participation in research.

Opportunities to conduct basic science research exist within the Department of Dermatology and Medical School. A combined residency/postdoctoral fellowship program that consists of two years of clinical training and two years of basic science research is an option for interested and qualified candidates.
