Training + Education

Tufts Medical Center, the principal teaching hospital of Tufts University School of Medicine, offers exceptional Residency and Fellowship programs. The Department of Dermatology is dedicated to providing such programs so that we can help train the next generation of leaders in clinical care and research.

The Tufts Medical Center Department of Dermatology formed its own independent residency training program in April 2008. Our program is ACGME-accredited for 9 resident positions. We will be participating in the upcoming NRMP Match for July 2019, for 3 positions.

At Tufts Medical Center’s Department of Dermatology, we believe that there is no better setting to learn about all aspects of dermatology. Our faculty members are leaders in their field, and many are nationally and internationally recognized. The Department’s strong focus on clinical research allows residents and fellows numerous opportunities for publication, while exposing them to new and investigational therapies that may not be available elsewhere. We take our roles as mentors seriously, and do everything we can to provide you with the best educational experience possible.

Our program has many strengths including:

  • High patient volume
  • Patient diversity (Asian, African American, Caucasian, Indian, Hispanic)
  • Specialty clinics in infectious disease, psoriasis, connective tissue disease, blistering diseases, high risk skin cancer, atopic dermatitis and laser and cosmetics
  • On-site infusion center
  • Two Mohs surgeons
  • ACGME-accredited dermatopathology fellowship
  • Clinical research fellowships
  • National and international recognition for clinical research in alopecia areata, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, hidradenitis suppurativa and vitiligo
  • Affiliation with the Boston VA Medical Center (Jamaica Plain, West Roxbury)
