Dermatology Residency

Department chair and program director Animesh Sinha, MD, PhD.

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 professional development.

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).

Residents in our program are afforded the opportunity to experience the provision of dermatologic care in a variety of settings including hospital based clinics, university practice locations, and private offices. The establishment of educational experiences in varied practice environments has many benefits for resident education, including exposure to diverse patient populations presenting with a wide variety of common and rare skin diseases, the advantage of working within different healthcare delivery systems, allowing multiple perspectives that may be adapted to increase the quality of patient care.
Our current residents report that our rotations and electives, stimulating research opportunities and supportive faculty constitute a rewarding training environment.
The UB Department of Dermatology accepts applications for residency through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS®) and participates in the National Resident Matching Program.
