Goals of Dermatology Nurse Practitioners Training Program

  1. To focus our substantial dermatology teaching resources onto interprofessional education for the Post-Master’s Dermatology NP Training Program.
  2. To enable trainees to work effectively as a member of the University Hospitals dermatology care team directed by the Department of Dermatology chair, a board-certified dermatologist, and thus optimally provide high-quality medical dermatology to the individuals and communities with skin diseases that we serve.


  1. Provide a structured educational and mentoring environment for post-graduate NPs to transition into an interprofessional collaborative medical dermatology practice within our department.
  2. Prepare the NP for critical thinking beyond the competency level received in their formal Master’s education
  3. Allow the NP to develop, demonstrate and maintain clinical outcomes while obtaining the clinical knowledge and expertise needed to practice at the top of license.
  4. Prepare the NP to develop as a clinician, leader, educator, researcher and resource within the UH dermatology health care team.
