The Department offers broad exposure to the field for medical students interested in Dermatology, with built-in rotations in sub-specialties. Students in their third or fourth year of medical school may apply to take the basic clinical clerkship elective which includes four week-long modules in various clinical settings, and also incorporates daily didactic sessions at the beginning and end of the day, as well as formal lectures by residents and faculty.
After completing the basic clinical clerkship elective, medical students may pursue the advanced clerkship elective. This option allows students to study specific areas in dermatology or dermatology research under the guidance of a faculty mentor. Previous areas of focus have included:
- Clinical Research at the Johns Hopkins Wound Center
- Advanced Dermatology Elective in Medical Dermatology
- Management of Skin Disease in Solid Organ Transplant Patients
