We serve a large academic medical center with a dermatology clinic with close to 30,000 patient visits and performing over 4000 biopsies a year, and other clinicians including internists, rheumatologists, general surgeons, plastic surgeons, as well as oncology surgeons who take care of patients with skin lesions, benign, and malignant. We also serve many community dermatology clinics throughout Massachusetts. The fellow will be expected to actively participate in clinical service, research and teaching activities in both the Pathology and Dermatology Departments.
