OSU Dermatology Residency Program Mission Statement
The OSU Dermatology Residency Program seeks to produce exceptional clinical dermatologists who practice medical dermatology and/or cutaneous oncology following their residency. The program seeks to accomplish this by having a robust clinical and didactic curriculum that is rooted in the ACGME core competencies. A special emphasis is placed on producing dermatologists who will work with patient populations that are underserved for geographic or socioeconomic reasons and/or who will make important contributions to the future of dermatology by choosing careers as academic clinician educators.
