A dermatology advanced clerkship designed for medical students interested in pursuing dermatology residency training. It consists of a 4 week clerkship based at the Stanford Medicine Outpatient Clinic in Redwood City, Stanford Hospital and Clinics in Palo Alto, and the Palo Alto VA. Students work closely with faculty to obtain strong clinical skills in the diagnosis and management of common skin disorders. Students are part of the Stanford and VA dermatology teams, participating in dermatopathology sessions, inpatient consultations, cutaneous oncology, surgery, and general adult dermatology clinics. Students are expected to attend Tuesday morning didactic teaching sessions as well as Dermatology Grand Rounds every Thursday morning. Students will be expected to give a case-based presentation at Grand Rounds during the rotation.   Stanford medical students interested in enrolling should contact Averely Mayo at for more information.
