Our dermatology training program is committed to the integration
of high academic and professonal competency standards in a
comprehensive curriculum of excellence. Our program provides
residents an education through a core academic curriculum and
The overall goal of the UB Dermatology training program is to educate physicians to deliver the highest level of dermatologic care with compassion, wisdom and expertise.
Through the residents’ participation in supervised clinical rotations, case conferences, didactic lecture programs, and other educational activities, the Department of Dermatology endeavors to train residents in dermatology in the six core competencies during the course of the residency program. While some competencies may be achieved early in their training, it is expected that individual residents will progressively improve in each of these areas throughout the three-year program such that, upon successful completion, they are competent to practice general dermatology independently.
We are fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) under the Next Accreditation System (NAS).
