Please note, we place a higher value on a balanced and challenging medical/surgical elective curriculum, as opposed to a curriculum that is overly represented with dermatology electives.

Within our residency program, we offer an opportunity to pursue a four-year academic track from either the MD or Osteopathic track. This is identified in your second year of dermatology training and does not require a separate ERAS application. If you are interested in pursuing the four-year academic track program, please include this in your personal statement and email us at .
