What do you like about the program?
I think one of the biggest strengths of this residency program is the well-rounded training we receive. We have the opportunity to learn from faculty members who practice in almost every niche of Dermatology. But what really makes this program the best is the people. As residents, we have fun together not only at work, but outside of work as well. That’s what really makes this place feel like home!
