Mount Sinai
Dermatology Residency - Program Overview

Clinical Opportunities

The staff of the Department of Dermatology sees approximately 30,000 patients per year. Given the size of our patient population, our residents encounter patients with a wide variety of cutaneous diseases and syndromes. Residents have the opportunity to work directly with members of the faculty on a one-on-one basis and run their own clinics under the supervision of voluntary attendings. In addition, they see consultations within the hospital. Because of the nature of the specialty clinic system at The Mount Sinai Medical Center, residents get significant experience not only in common skin diseases but also in rare conditions such as neurofibromatosis, cutaneous sarcoid, and other illnesses for which Mount Sinai's specialty clinics are famous.
