Graduate medical education in dermatology at Mayo Clinic
The Dermatology Residency at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, offers a patient mix that provides experience with routine cases and unusual skin disorders, intensive didactic training, and a strong diagnostics program.
At Mayo Clinic, we care for patients from all around the world, from local to international visitors. Our goal is to train a diverse group of future dermatologists that will be able to deliver compassionate and high-level care to all patients in their community and beyond. The institution and program value and demand an environment of mutual respect for all members of the health care team, patients, and visitors to Mayo Clinic.
Residents are expected to participate in scholarly activity and may also participate in rotations at Mayo Clinic's campuses in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona, or Jacksonville, Florida.
