CME & Teaching Venues

The clinical practice of the U-M Dermatology Residency Program is supplemented with a daily didactic teaching schedule (7 hours per week)

  • 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(4 days per year) and the American Academy of Dermatology meetings (each resident attends twice over three years.) Residents are entitled to three additional conference days over the course of their residency.
