We are approved by ACGME for 21 dermatology residency positions in the three-year program. We consider applicants from both allopathic and osteopathic medical schools. The deadline to apply for one of our PGY-2 dermatology positions (to begin each July) is December 1, 18 months before the start date, and the national match will occur in March. Invitations to interview will not be sent out until November or December. The internship (PGY-1) and dermatology residency (PGY-2 to 4) programs are not linked. Candidates may apply to separate institutions or geographies for their internship and residency. Interviews will occur in January and February. We strictly follow the rules of the matching program. All applications must be sent electronically through the national Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) program. Applicants must also enroll in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), which electronically matches applicants to their preferred selections. It is important to be realistic, and note that the dermatology match is one of the most competitive of all specialties—we routinely receive 500+ applications for 5 – 7 slots.
