CME & Teaching Venues

The clinical practice of the U-M Dermatology Residency Program is supplemented with the didactic portion of our residents' learning experience.

  • In morning lecture, you will integrate and expand upon concepts from clinical dermatology, dermatopathology, pharmacology, surgery and basic science.
  • During our Diagnostic Conference/Grand Rounds, you will observe and study the cases of three to six patients in-person weekly. In addition, one of our dermatopathologists presents the relevant pathology, explaining the clinical-pathologic correlation.
  • Our basic science curriculum augments your knowledge, providing a strong foundation in basic science.
  • In addition, you will expand your understanding of dermatological issues through regularly scheduled book and journal clubs, lectures, and clinical cases shown in conferences.
  • Residents attend various meetings including Michigan Dermatologic Society and the American Academy of Dermatology meetings.
