Dermatology Residency

Donor Recognition

The dermatology 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 faculty are dedicated to helping residents build a strong foundation in all aspects of dermatology.

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. 

How to apply

We accept two residents each year via the annual National Resident Matching Program.

Basic requirements for the dermatology residency follow guidelines of the American Board of Dermatology and include the following:

  • Satisfactory completion of the (PGY-1) level transitional or preliminary year in internal medicine, general surgery, family practice, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, or emergency medicine at a board-approved, accredited U.S. or Canadian medical school
  • A valid license to practice medicine in the State of Illinois.

The application process is handled via the Electronic Residency Application Service website in conjunction with the Association of American Colleges. Please contact your medical school dean’s office for processing instructions and to request an ERAS electronic token for access to MyEras.  If you are interested in learning more about our program or are planning on applying for a RUSH Dermatology residency position, we encourage you to join us for one of our 2021 Virtual Open Houses where we answer commonly asked questions. You will also have the opportunity to speak with our first year residents who will be your chief residents if you apply and match for a position this year. Virtual Open Houses are scheduled for Thursday, 9/23 and 9/30 from 5-6pm (CST)
