Clinical Rotations in Dermatology by Visiting U.S. Medical Residents and Nurse Practitioners

Clinical Rotations in Dermatology for visiting U.S. Medical Residents or Nurse Practitioners requires a minimum of four months advance notice.

The Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Dermatology has been home to innovations that have changed the field of dermatology, including LASER and PUVA, and continues to be a center of pioneering clinical and basic science research in many aspects of dermatology.  In addition to outpatient medical dermatology and an inpatient consult service, we also provide specialty clinics, including pediatric dermatology, Melanoma and Pigmented Lesions, Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma, Allergic Contact Dermatitis, Rheumatology-Dermatology, and High Risk Skin Cancer Clinic (non-melanoma) , as well as Mohs Micrographic Surgery and a world-renowned Laser and Cosmetic Center.

Visting U.S. Medical  Residents will have the opportunity of working closely with our dermatology attendings, dermatology residents, and rotating medical students. They may partake in the didactic schedule during their visit.

Due to privacy regulations, we are unable to offer clinical rotations to undergraduate, high school students, or non-medical personnel.

Visiting International Medical Residents must apply through the Mass General International Visitors Education Program.
