The elective in dermatology is predominantly a clinical rotation designated for students planning a career in dermatology and primary care. The student will rotate through the dermatology clinics, where they will work with the residents and faculty.
In addition, the student will be part of the dermatology inpatient consult team working with the chief resident in dermatology and faculty members. Though the student’s role is primarily that of an observer, she/he will be expected to complete some clinical evaluations as well.
Each student is expected to attend all of the dermatology conferences during the elective period.
