Department of Dermatology

Residency Program

Welcome

photo of a doctor looking at a patient's skinOur residency is a traditional three-year structured program in clinical dermatology. Clinical research is encouraged. The Department of Dermatology opened in 1977. Since its inception, we have accepted about two residents per year.

Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine is a community-based program so there is no single university hospital. Residents train at multiple sites including continuity clinics at Wright State Physicians medical building on campus, and at the Dayton VA Medical Center. We have inpatient consults at Miami Valley Hospital.

Residents work with multiple fellowship-trained dermatopathologists and fellowship-trained dermotologic surgeons during each year of training. The didactic schedule includes weekly dermatopathology lectures, a comprehensive visiting lecturer program, journal clubs, surgical lectures, kodachrome sessions, monthly Grand Rounds and board review sessions.

Applicant tips

We are looking for bright, energetic, motivated individuals who love to work hard, work as a team and want to learn. Our intention is to train future leaders in dermatology. We want people who expect nothing but excellence from themselves and those around them.

We will never discriminate against applicants who have performed prior residencies. We also will not discriminate against outstanding candidates who have trained overseas or at osteopathic medical schools.

Applications for 2020

We will accept two residents for a start date of July 1, 2022.  To be considered for the 2022 program, applicants must apply through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). The application deadline is October 31, 2020. Applications not completed by that date will not be considered. Applicants selected for interview will be offered a choice of two interview dates with one date being in December 2020 and the other in January 2021.

Applicants who have not yet completed an internship are encouraged to consider applying for the transitional year offered by nearby Kettering Medical Center (KMC) or Soin Medical Center (SMC). Matching with KMC or SMC is not a requirement for acceptance to our residency, but rather it is often an applicant’s preference, and many have chosen that path. For an overview of either program, visit the Kettering Medical Center Transitional Year Program or Soin Medical Center Transitional Year Program websites.
