Med Derm Residency
About the program
Our program was independently approved by the American Board of Dermatology and the American Board of Internal Medicine in 2006. The program is based at the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota, and residents rotate through the following sites:
- University of Minnesota Medical Center
- Veterans Affairs Medical Center
- Regions Hospital
- Park-Nicollet Health Services
- Hennepin County Medical Center
The residents rotate through inpatient wards, intensive care units, the emergency room and urgent care settings. The experience is enriched with multiple outpatient clinics in all subspecialties and consultation services. Elective time and protected time for scholarly activities and research is provided. The residents will actively participate in the review and evaluation of the training program. When rotating in Dermatology, the resident will have the same experience and expectations as a Dermatology resident of equivalent program level. Please see the Dermatology residency page for further information. When rotating in Internal Medicine, the resident will have the same experience and expectations as a Medicine resident of equivalent program level. Please see the Internal Medicine Residency page for further information.
For further information see "How Combined Internal Medicine-Dermatology Residency Programs Can Improve Patient and Population Health" published in Academic Medicine, Vol. 86, No. 11 /November 2011.
