The Dermatology Residency program at the Wake Forest School of Medicine is a three-year advanced training program. Appointments are made through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) beginning at PGY-2 only.
Prior to appointment in the program, residents must have successfully completed a broad-based clinical year (PGY-1) in an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited emergency medicine, family medicine, general surgery, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics or transitional year program. Regretfully we are unable to consider applicants who have completed a prior residency program. For applicants with visas, we are only able to consider those with a J-1 visa.
All faculty and current residents play an active role in the selection of new residents. We seek candidates who are very competitive academically and highly self-motivated. The candidates we select are physicians who are truly committed to the attainment of leadership positions in dermatology through an academic career or outstanding clinical practice.
Applicants must submit an application through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and register through NRMP and also complete the new ERAS Supplemental Application. Candidates selected for an interview will be notified by email of available dates.
