Micrographic Surgery and Dermatologic Oncology Fellowship
The University of Minnesota Micrographic Surgery and Dermatologic Oncology Fellowship provides a unique balance of training in topics important in becoming a dermatologic surgeon and will cover training in micrographic and reconstructive surgery, laser surgery and medicine, and cosmetic surgery.
Training occurs at these four sites:
Veterans Affairs Medical Center: The Minneapolis VAMC has one of the largest and busiest VA dermatology departments in the country. The training will be focused mostly on Mohs micrographic surgery and reconstruction and cutaneous oncology. At this location, the fellow will have a greater opportunity to serve as the primary surgeon when appropriate.
University of Minnesota: This site will provide training in Mohs and reconstructive surgery, laser surgery, photodynamic therapy, melanoma and pigmented lesions and management of solid organ transplant recipients.
Zel Skin Institute: Zel Skin is a private practice facility with state-of-the art lasers and photomedicine devices. It is the primary site for laser surgery and photomedicine as well as cosmetic surgery including Botox and fillers.
Park Nicollet Health Systems: This site is a large multi-specialty, community-based organization with approximately 40 providers in Dermatology. The primary focus of training will be Mohs micrographic surgery and reconstruction with a secondary focus on management of difficult cutaneous oncology patients.
