The Dermatologic/Mohs Surgery Clinic treats approximately 900 skin cancers annually with a large number of these cancers being of a challenging nature due to pathology, location and patient needs. Both the fixed and the fresh tissue techniques of Mohs surgery are performed. The Fellow will encounter a wide variety of skin cancers. Surgery is performed on virtually every anatomic region of the body and the Fellow will be exposed to many plastic reconstructive procedures including flaps and grafts.
Restorative dermatologic procedures include scar revision, chemical peels and dermabrasion. There are also a number of cosmetic procedures performed in the clinic. A month long elective is also provided in order to permit the Fellow to expand his/her procedural repertoire. Journal Club, didactic teaching sessions or invited guest conferences are held weekly.
In addition to assisting their mentor, program Fellows will be responsible for reviewing patient histories, physical exams, operating room scheduling, patient follow-ups and on-call rotation. It is expected that the Fellow is proficient with computers, especially with Microsoft Windows and the Word and Power Point applications.
