The one-year Micrographic Surgery and Dermatologic Oncology Fellowship on Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, focuses on:

  • Mohs micrographic surgery
  • Cutaneous reconstructive surgery
  • Laser, cosmetic, and general dermatologic surgery
  • Vein surgery

During this fellowship, you work with other staff members and residents in the Division of Clinical Dermatology and Division of Dermatopathology and Cutaneous Immunopathology, as well as colleagues in otolaryngology, ophthalmology, plastic surgery, oculoplastic surgery, orthopedic oncology surgery, general surgery, and other departments.

As a trainee, you're expected to operate four days a week, with one day in clinic per week, and will work closely with the staff and residents in clinical practice.

In addition, you must complete a research project.

You will also be involved in cutaneous oncology and micrographic surgery didactics, delivered to the residents at different points in time throughout the year.

Finally, you'll be in charge of organizing a quarterly journal club where the hot topics of the time are discussed in a collegial way amongst the dermatologic surgeons and dermatologic surgery fellows.


This Micrographic Surgery and Dermatologic Oncology Fellowship is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and approved by the American College of Mohs Surgery.
