Dermatology Residency Program

Letter from the program director

Dr. Rosmarin with no white coat Dear Potential Applicant,

Welcome to the Department of Dermatology at Tufts Medical Center. The Residency Program is designed to provide trainees with the knowledge, skills, and experience for all of the competencies needed to function successfully as a leader in dermatology. Our Program is partnered with the VA and community affiliates to fulfill the needs of our trainees whose future activities will be solely clinical practice, those who wish to become clinician-educators, and those who wish to pursue careers in dermatology research.

Excellence in Dermatology training

The Tufts Medical Center Department of Dermatology formed its own independent residency training program in April 2008. Our program is ACGME accredited for 12 resident positions. We will be participating in the upcoming NRMP Match for 3 or 4 positions to start July 2021.

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.
