First Year Residency

First year residents spend twelve months in the outpatient clinic and by the end of the first year, we expect residents to be familiar with the clinical and pathological manifestations of the most common dermatologic diseases, including psoriasis, lichen planus, eczematous dermatitis (both localized and generalized), urticaria, rosacea, acne, contact dermatitis, dermatophyte and candidal infections, herpes simplex and zoster, basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas, melanoma, verrucae, and molluscum. 

Residents should also be comfortable with punch and shave biopsies, liquid nitrogen cryotherapy, cyst excisions, simple excisions, UVB and PUVA therapy, and patch testing.
