Residencies & Fellowships:

Tufts Medical Center has two dermatology residency positions. Dermatology residency time is divided over a three year period among hospitals affiliated with the Boston University and Tufts University Schools of Medicine: the Boston Medical Center (535 beds), the Boston Veterans Administration Healthcare System (321 beds) and Tufts Medical Center (375 beds). Overall, there are more than 32,000 outpatient visits to dermatology clinics annually at these hospitals, as well as active inpatient consultation services. Continual close contact is maintained among all residents through weekly teaching exercises and cross coverage for night and weekend call. Approximately thirty full-time faculty and numerous part-time clinical associates provide expert instruction in virtually all subspecialty areas within dermatology.
