Dermatology Research Fellowships
Dermatology Fellowships Focus on Research and Clinical Trials
University Hospitals Department of Dermatology has opportunities for Clinical Research Fellowships. The department employs three fellowships in clinical research areas.
Clinical Trials Fellowship
The clinical trials fellow works as a sub-investigator on both sponsor- and investigator-initiated clinical trials, the majority of which evaluate new systemic biologic therapy for psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and other inflammatory skin diseases. Responsibilities include recruiting, screening and consenting new patients, completing and documenting all patient visits and assessments, and distributing/documenting correct use of study medication. The fellow works as part of an established clinical trials team and is responsible for running a weekly investigator meeting. This fellowship is a two- to three-year position and is mentored by Neil Korman, MD, PhD.
Cutaneous Oncology Fellowship
The Cutaneous Oncology Fellowship is a two- to three-year position, during which the fellow works as a sub-investigator for clinical trials, prepares patient reports for a weekly multidisciplinary cutaneous oncology conference, and assists in a resident capacity in lymphoma/melanoma clinic. The fellow is also encouraged to work on independent research projects. Cutaneous oncology is both stimulating and challenging, and this fellowship will enable the candidate to establish expertise in medical dermatologic oncology. This fellowship is mentored by Kevin Cooper, MD.
