The Fellowship in Micrographic Surgery and Dermatologic Oncology at Dermatology Professionals, Inc. is a one-year ACGME-approved program offered to board eligible/board-certified dermatologists. All aspects of advanced dermatological surgery are seen in our clinics, providing a broad educational experience. The service is very busy with a high patient load, complex tumor biology, complicated reconstructive procedures, and exposure to a broad range of cosmetic procedures.
Dermatology Professionals, Inc. is a stand-alone private practice. The fellowship faculty members have appointments at The Warren Alpert Medical School’s Department of Dermatology and The University of Massachusetts Medical School’s Division of Dermatology. The faculty has a strong relationship with the local medical centers’ Departments of Surgery, Plastic Surgery and Ophthalmology, and there is emphasis on using a multidisciplinary approach in the management of difficult cutaneous neoplasms, including appropriate staging and adjuvant care. The fellow will become familiar with the advantages of and the application of this philosophy to the removal of difficult cutaneous tumors and the reconstruction of the subsequent surgical defects. The fellow is expected to complete an in-depth research project by the time he or she finishes the fellowship and to prepare a manuscript suitable for submission to a peer-reviewed journal.
