Dermatology Fellowship Training Program structure 

Graduates of this ABD-certified Fellowship Training Program will be eligible for certification by the American Board of Dermatology.

First year of clinical training in ambulatory and inpatient dermatology

Fellows rotate on the inpatient and consulting services: They evaluate and formulate diagnostic and treatment plans for presentation to the attending at daily rounds and work closely with Boston Children’s Hospital residents in caring for patients.

Fellows are exposed to a wide range of common and rare dermatologic disorders. We care for patients from around the globe and coordinate care with a number of other subspecialty services in the Hospital.

Fellows interact with a large and highly expert faculty (more than 10 attending physicians) with a diverse range of special interests — all are experienced mentors and very willing to help trainees with research projects and provide career advice.

The Service consults on about 350 patients each year. Fellows spend eight half days per week in ambulatory clinics or procedures, where they evaluate patients with a broad range of dermatologic disorders and present them to the clinic attending. Fellows are trained in techniques of intralesional injections, skin biopsy, contact sensitization, cryotherapy and laser therapy. In addition, they participate in clinical studies often leading to publication or meeting presentation.

There is a monthly pediatric dermatology conference to discuss cases. There are two adult dermatology grand rounds and two weekly conferences to discuss vascular anomalies cases.

Fellows meet weekly with the program director throughout the year to strategize regarding research plans and mentor connections. The senior faculty are always available to trainees on an ad hoc basis to discuss any concerns.
