Dermatology deals with all types of skin conditions - from acne to cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, from cosmetic surgery to melanoma. To help interested medical students gain experience and early insight into the scope of dermatology as a specialty, the U-M Dermatology Department provides rotations for fourth-year U-M Medical School students. Space permitting, a limited number of non-U-M medical students are also invited to take this rotation.
Directed by Chris Bichakjian, MD and honored by the American Academy of Dermatology, our intensive dermatology teaching sequence for second-year medical students received the Academy's National Award for Excellence in Education and is top-ranked by its students.
The Department of Dermatology offers opportunities for students to participate in research within our department, based on availability and qualifications.
