"The UW Dermatology Program is a wonderful place to be at and to train. It has many attractive features, most important of which are the people, wealth and diversity of clinical cases and stimulating academic environment. The quality and character of dermatologists is what attracted me the most to the UW. The attendings are most supportive and caring, highly knowledgeable and inspiring human beings. They are outstanding clinicians, mentors and role models. The staff is nurturing and flexible, fellow residents are real comrades, are always trying to help and are team players. The academic environment provides vigorous multi-site inpatient and outpatient clinical training with its numerous opportunities to undertake research projects and partake in basic science investigations."
