The Dermatology Residency at Baylor University Medical Center, part of Baylor Scott & White Health, provides training in post-graduate education years two, three and four.
Our three-year residency's large patient base and affiliations with multiple private and hospital-based clinics provide diversity of patient populations, a broad spectrum of medically and surgically related cutaneous diseases and exposure to an outstanding clinical faculty.
We accept two dermatology residents per year.
Residents offer direct care under the one-on-one supervision of an attending physician. Each year is designed to allow the resident to perform more independently in the diagnosis, management and decision-making functions of dermatology according to his or her knowledge level, technical skills and expertise.
Two elective rotations in the third year allow residents to gain more in-depth experience in one or more dermatological subspecialties: pediatrics, surgery, dermatopathology, clinical or translational research.
In addition, PGY4 residents have chief resident duties during which they gain organization, leadership and scheduling experience in addition to teaching “chief review” every other Wednesday.
One Wednesday each month all residents take part in faculty-supervised cosmetic clinic from 5 to 7 p.m. Each resident brings one patient and utilizes a variety of products, such as neurotoxin and filler. Additional cosmetic procedures may be utilized pending faculty approval.
We encourage our residents to routinely attend professional dermatologic meetings to advance both knowledge and networking. Some of the conferences in which our residents participate are listed below.
Residents are responsible for designing, submitting to Institutional Review Board (IRB) and conducting an original research investigation of their choice.
By the end of residency, they are to submit their findings to a peer-reviewed journal. Each resident must submit two original research articles to peer-reviewed journals by the end of residency.
Systems improvement project: each resident must complete a small project during each year of residency aimed at improving patient care/clinical efficiency.
Baylor University Medical Center, part of Baylor Scott & White Health, is a 115-acre campus
