Training facilities

VCU Medical Center

The award-winning VCU Medical Center features pediatric and adult medical and surgical inpatient services, as well as the only comprehensive burn unit in Central Virginia. The dermatology inpatient consultation service is drawn from this facility, and residents serve as the first point-of-contact in the care of these patients. With faculty supervision, residents become comfortable managing common and complex inpatient dermatology conditions.

Nelson Clinic at VCU Medical Center

This ambulatory care setting at VCU Medical Center serves as the residents’ continuity clinic. Patient encounters range from common dermatology, like eczema, to more exotic blistering disorders and genodermatoses, in all skin types and ages.

Residents are directly responsible for the care of their patients and follow them longitudinally throughout their training with the guidance of an attending physician. Attending physicians rotate their coverage of the resident clinic, which diversifies the experience. Weekly procedure clinics provide an avenue for perfecting surgical skills and are staffed by attending Mohs surgeons.

VCU Medical Center at Stony Point

This ambulatory setting, located in suburban Richmond, Virginia, features clinical dermatology space, as well as the procedural dermatology (Mohs surgery) facility. Residents work directly with faculty members in private clinics, learning management of acute and chronic medical and surgical dermatologic conditions with varying levels of complexity.

The hands-on surgery experience is highly valued by residents for the opportunity to be actively involved in planning and carrying out advanced dermatologic procedures, with one-to-one supervision by a fellowship-trained attending dermatologic surgeon.

This facility, located 10 minutes from downtown Richmond, provides both outpatient and inpatient dermatology services to the veteran population of Central Virginia and surrounding areas. With an attending supervisor, residents care for veterans with a multitude of skin disorders.
