Mohs Surgery Fellowship

Candidate Information

Prerequisites

The fellowship is open to any physician who has completed a full residency (ABMS approved) and is at least board eligible in his or her field. Candidates must have documented superior performance in their residency, especially with respect to patient care. A successful candidate will demonstrate evidence of curiosity beyond that normally expected in a residency. The ability to get along with peers and support staff is a prerequisite for a program that is intensive and depends heavily on close professional relationships. Excellent basic surgical skills are an asset.

Philosophy

The fellowship is geared towards the dermatologist who is strongly considering a career in academic medicine. We believe that the multidisciplinary approach essential to the success of a cutaneous oncologist physician is pursued best in an academic environment. It is hoped that the fellow will obtain sufficient training in clinical medicine and research techniques so that he or she may contribute to further expansion of knowledge in the field. The breadth of training in surgery, oncology, and pathology are intended to make the fellow a skilled, super-specialized physician.

Salary

Salary will be commensurate with the fellow's PGY-status.
