Procedural Dermatology Fellowship

The Department of Dermatology at the University of Minnesota offers a one-year ACGME-accredited Micrographic Surgery & Dermatologic Oncology Fellowship. Our fellows are offered the highest level of training in skin cancer surgery, post-skin cancer reconstruction and aesthetic dermatology.  The fellowship offers a robust didactic curriculum with weekly textbook reviews, multi-disciplinary conferences and monthly journal clubs.

Our Mohs unit serves as a tertiary referral center for the state of Minnesota. We perform a full range of reconstructions including all manner of local and interpolation flaps. The Mohs surgery unit has two full-time fellowship-trained faculty members. Additionally, the fellowship offers rotation with full-time cosmetic dermatologists in the academic and community settings. We will accept applications for the 2023-2024 fellowship year through the San Francisco match.
