Rotating at Brown Dermatology

Due to Coronavirus restrictions, some of the following may not be available at this time.

Dermatology Resident Elective Time

Our senior residents, in good academic standing, are allowed 4 weeks to pursue an uninterrupted course of study or patient care at this or another institution, in the United States or abroad.  This elective time allows the individual resident to expand knowledge in a particular subspecialty in dermatology such as pediatrics, surgery, international health, HIV-related disease, etc.

Medical Student Electives

During the four-week clinical dermatology elective, medical students will become familiar with common inflammatory and neoplastic dermatologic disorders. Each student will participate in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of patients presenting with primary skin diseases.

Medical students may also be exposed to the study of cutaneous manifestations of systemic diseases while rotating through the outpatient clinics and inpatient consultation service. Students learn how to determine when appropriate referrals to dermatologists are necessary and become familiar with common dermatologic procedures including shave biopsy, punch biopsy, and cryotherapy.

Medical students will also present a dermatologic case of his/her choice to colleagues and at least one faculty member at the conclusion of the rotation.
