Dermatology Residency Requirements & Application

Case Western Reserve University/University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center Programs

Applications to our dermatology residency programs must be submitted through the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). For more detailed information on how to apply, click here.

Six resident physicians are accepted each year with 4 dedicated allopathic positions and 2 osteopathic positions.

MD Students/Applicants

Applications for the 2021 match (advanced positions to begin July 1, 2022) must be submitted by October 21, 2020. Applicants selected for an interview will be notified via email. Interviews will be conducted virtually in January 2021 and final selections will be made through the National Residency Match Program (NRMP).

Your completed ERAS application must include the following:

  • Completed ERAS Application
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Personal statement. Please include the reasons why you want to train at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center
  • Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE)
  • Medical school transcripts

  • A minimum of three letters of recommendation from physicians in support of your application to the program.

Please make sure you are registered with the NRMP in order to participate in the match.

The NRMP program code for the MD program is: 1552080A0

Osteopathic Students/Applicants

We are linking our Dermatology Osteopathic Track to the University Hospitals Regional Hospitals Prelim Program. Prior Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) training is required in order to apply to this track.

Applications for the 2021 match (positions to begin July 1, 2022) must be submitted by October 21, 2020. Applicants selected for an interview will be notified via email. Virtual interviews will be conducted in January, 2021 and final selections will be made through the National Residency Match Program (NRMP).

Please make sure you are registered with the NRMP in order to participate in the match.

The NRMP program code for the DO program is: 1552080A1

Your completed ERAS application must include the following:

  • Completed ERAS Application
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Personal statement. Please include the reason(s) why you want to train at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center
  • Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE)
  • Medical school transcripts
  • Results of all COMLEX/USMLE Examination Scores, if available
  • A minimum of three letters of recommendation from physicians in support of your application to the program.

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

Within our residency program, we offer an opportunity to pursue a four-year academic track from either the MD or DO 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 our program coordinator at Kristina.Myers@UHhospitals.org.

Any questions regarding the application process to either program should be directed to:
