I am pleased to welcome you to the Department of Dermatology at Rush University Medical Center.
The dermatology residency program at Rush consists of clinical rotations, conferences, seminars, research and an opportunity to participate in the teaching of medical students. A distinguished clinical faculty and research facility provide residents with comprehensive training, while providing its diverse patient base with the highest quality of services for the diagnosis and treatment of skin disease. Our program emphasizes the investigative process for a better understanding of the pathogenesis of cutaneous disease.
Our graduates frequently earn clinical, basic science, or fellowship appointments at universities throughout the country, and those that enter private practice invariably become pillars of the medical community.
We are glad that you have joined us; and we hope that you will find the next three years enlightening and rewarding.
