UW Dermatology 2020-2021 Interview Season Statement

The faculty at the University of Wisconsin have historically taken a holistic approach to application review and interview selection. We are interested in the personal characteristics of each applicant and their potential for providing outstanding dermatologic patient care. With the transition to video interviews, our team is working to ensure you get a ‘feel’ for the program through our website, Instagram page, virtual Grand Rounds, and “Matching with a Mask” YouTube series. We embrace the recommendations of the Association of Professors of Dermatology for the 2020-21 interview season. We welcome you to reach out to our Department contacts if you would like more specific information about our program.

Message from the Vice Chair of Education

Thank you for your interest in the University of Wisconsin Dermatology educational offerings.

I am proud to introduce you to the many educational and clinical opportunities we offer in our Residency Program. My colleagues and I foster a supportive, collegial environment with an emphasis on resident well-being. Our faculty are committed to the personal and professional growth of each resident, and provide mentorship to help residents to achieve their goals to provide high quality patient care in academic or private practice settings.

The faculty of the University of Wisconsin Department of Dermatology have a longstanding commitment to resident education. Our residency and fellowship training programs have an excellent reputation for providing a wide range of clinical experiences, including general dermatology, pediatric dermatology, specialty clinics, dermatopathology, cutaneous surgery, teledermatology and consultative dermatology. We also offer opportunities to explore research methodology and training.

Medical student education is also a priority of the Department of Dermatology. From the classroom to the clinic, faculty and resident introduce students to the principles of cutaneous medicine. The newly developed ForWard Curriculum integrates clinical science, basic science, public health curricula to maximize medical student education. In clinic, students are paired with residents during clinical rotations to promote learning and mentorship of students pursuing dermatology and non-dermatology residencies. Our residents serve as stellar role models for medical students.

As Program Director, it is my mission to provide the foundation for developing a successful career in Dermatology, while providing sufficient flexibility to individualize resident training to meet specific career goals. I welcome any questions you may have about training at the University of Wisconsin.
