Structure and Curriculum of the Program

Clinical Training

Regular clinic duties are held at various clinics/specialties around San Antonio. These clinic locations are listed below. For each resident, at least one month of every year is dedicated to the inpatient consult service. Dermatologic surgery is incorporated as a weekly half day into a majority of our clinical rotations. Mohs surgery rotations are also a standard rotation that each resident participates in.


Weekly didactic sessions in dermatopathology and general dermatology are held on Wednesday mornings and Friday afternoons, respectively. These are protected times in which there are no clinic duties. Both faculty and resident involvement is encouraged and expected, including giving lectures on occasion starting from your first year.

Continuing Medical Education

The Division of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery provides continuing medical education for the dermatology community through various programs. Periodically, the Division hosts the Annual Texas Dermatological Society Meeting. The meeting is comprised of live patient presentations, resident lectures, and featured guest speakers. Further information will be posted as opportunities arise.
