"The University of Washington Dermatology Residency program provides a unique environment where you will have exposure to one the most varied populations available in any training program across the country. Your patient care responsibilities will span across multiple hospitals/clinics with significant exposure to underserved populations.  In addition, you will have robust training in both surgery and pathology, as evidenced by the fact that a large portion of our trainees become specialists in these areas of dermatology. Research opportunities are extensive with excellent funding sources within easy reach.  Lastly, the dedication of the faculty and staff to teaching is superb.  Few programs will provide such a supportive and friendly environment to learn the science and art of dermatology."
