The Rush Dermatology Residency is a three-year training program, dedicated to helping residents build a strong foundation in all aspects of dermatology. With a focus on experiential learning, our program provides a highly personalized training experience.

About the program

The residency is a three-year training program, fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and the American Board of Dermatology.

With nine full-time and nine part-time volunteer faculty members, our staff-to-trainee ratio offers residents a highly personalized training experience.

Our curriculum utilizes experiential learning, as well as deliberate and reflective practices to build competence in the diagnosis, pathogenesis (including histopathology and immunopathology), treatment and prevention of skin diseases.
