Students participating in the Dermatology clerkship will learn basic dermatology, develop observational skills, and hone their analytic thinking with respect to differential diagnosis. Through experience working with patients, they enhance their skills in interpreting data and making clinical judgments.
Learning from both faculty and residents, students gain a well-rounded view into the practice of dermatology. For most of their teaching, students work one-on-one with a resident who provides a significant teaching component regarding the diagnosis and clinical care of each patient. Students also attend bi weekly conferences with Dermatology faculty and lectures with the clerkship director in addition to shadowing residents in clinic.
During this clinical rotation, medical students work at various clinic sites, including the Taubman Center, Dominos Farms, Cancer Center, University Health Service and the VA Clinic in Ann Arbor.
Schedule / Rotation
The rotation lasts 2-4 weeks. Please see the U-M Medical School website for specific dates and additional program information.
