Each year residents attend the annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology. Four times each year, the residents attend Saturday conferences hosted by the New England Dermatological Society. These sessions are hosted by Harvard Medical School, Boston University, Tufts University, Brown University, Yale University and Dartmouth Medical School. Residents are eligible to attend the Annual Resident Retreat for Academic Physicians, sponsored by the Society for Investigative Dermatology.
Residents may partake in additional educational meetings on an ad hoc basis and in accordance with the program's meeting policy.
The Program faculty has always taken a special interest in developing academic dermatologists and, in particular, in encouraging trainees to undertake careers which include clinical or laboratory research. Elective opportunities exist for residents to explore clinical and research areas of interest.
