Dermatology Residency

About the Program / Educational Purpose

The Dermatology residency is designed to offer a comprehensive program that provides clinical, procedural, and didactic education in both the inpatient and outpatient settings to help residents become competent, proficient, and professional dermatologists who are certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Dermatology.    

Residents participate in didactic and clinic sessions and complete rotations in settings provided by SRMC.  Clinical experience is designed to assure longitudinal and continuity of care training that includes hands-on experience, self-evaluation, and faculty evaluation.  


The program will increase knowledge and understanding of Osteopathic Principles and Practice and develop heightened skills in Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment and integration of each of these into the management of internal medicine patients in both the inpatient and outpatient settings.  The program will also develop the resident's teaching skills and he/she will be actively involved in teaching other residents and students in the art of osteopathic manipulation.  

Attendance at the weekly OMN lecture series is mandatory, and the resident will receive a schedule of these events at orientation.  Residents are expected to evaluate and perform a history and physical examination on patients seen for OMN.  After presenting a patient to the senior resident/attending, appropriate laboratory/radiology studies will be ordered, if needed.  Residents are expected to closely follow their patients throughout them in their continuity of care clinic and assist with disposition.  Residents will perform any procedures on their patients under the supervision of the senior resident or attending. 

Through didactic and clinical experiences in outpatient and inpatient settings, the resident will gain fundamental knowledge, skills, attitudes, and principles essential to the practice.  This is accomplished through the care of a large, diverse patient population with a broad variety of pathology; the design of treatment programs that integrate osteopathic manipulative treatment into total osteopathic medical management of all disease processes; and attendance at formal educational programs.
