The Dermatology Scholars Program (DSP) is an optional track for residents who are interested in developing a focused area of expertise. Graduates from this program will be well positioned to be a local expert as they begin their practice in an academic or private practice setting.
DSP scholars may take advantage of local, regional, national or international resources. Participants may choose to focus on a clinical subspecialty, translational research or basic science research within the UW Health system. Alternatively, scholars may elect to pursue an advanced degree including Master of Public Health or Master of Business Administration. All participants will be partnered with a mentor to guide their professional development. Past scholars have successfully networked with advisors from outside the University of Wisconsin to enhance their education.
Dermatology Scholars will be appointed Clinical Instructor in the Department of Dermatology for this 1 year program. Clinical responsibilities include a minimum of two half-day clinics. The remainder of the time will be spent pursuing research in an area of focus.
