Procedural Dermatology Fellowship


The Washington University Division of Dermatology is pleased to have an ACGME accredited Procedural Dermatology fellowship.  The fellowship is a one-year program, which is also approved by the American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS).  We accept one fellow per year through the San Francisco Match.


Mission:  Our mission is to provide outstanding dermatologic surgery training in the areas of surgical oncology and Mohs surgery, laser surgery and cosmetic dermatology.  After the fellowship year, which includes extensive experience in a vast array of procedures, trainees will be well prepared to embark on a successful career in dermatologic surgery.


Eligibility:  Fellows should be board-eligible or board-certified in dermatology prior to starting the fellowship.


About the Fellowship:  The fellowship primarily takes place at the Washington University Center for Dermatologic and Cosmetic Surgery (CDCS).  There is an emphasis on Mohs micrographic surgery and complex reconstruction, with the opportunity to work with two fellowship-trained Mohs surgeons in a practice that performs over 2000 Mohs cases annually.  In addition, our office is equipped with over fifteen different laser and light devices, and the fellow will obtain extensive experience in their use with the opportunity to independently perform all types of laser surgery, including fractionated and ablative resurfacing.  The fellow also has the opportunity to work with other specialties including ENT facial plastics, plastic surgery, and oculoplastics.  Our fellow participates in regular journal clubs, tumor boards, and assist in didactic and hands-on teaching of the residents.
