Our department’s medical student elective is a predominantly clinical rotation designated for future physicians planning a career in dermatology or primary care. Students will rotate through the dermatology clinics, where they will work with the residents and faculty. 

In addition, students will be part of the dermatology inpatient consult team working with a senior resident and faculty members. Though students are in attendance primarily to observe, they will also be expected to complete some clinical evaluations and chart documentation. 

Each student is expected to attend all dermatology conferences during the elective period.
