Requirements for Completion of Fellowship

In addition to the routine requirements of the fellowship, the fellow will be expected to initiate, pursue, and complete a well- defined project during the fellowship year that will result in a submitted publication and an oral presentation at a national meeting. In addition, the fellow, who will hold the rank of instructor in dermatology in the Yale University School of Medicine, will be expected to be a role model to residents and instruct them in basic dermatologic surgery throughout the course of the fellowship. The ability to teach is considered as important as the ability to do surgery and conduct quality research.
