Procedural Dermatology Fellowship
Our one year fellowship program is currently accredited by the ACGME as a Procedural Dermatology Fellowship. The Procedural Dermatology Fellow works closely with Dr. Daniel Berg and Dr. Linda Chang in the Dermatology Surgery Center. This busy clinic consists of 6 Large procedure rooms, 4 examination rooms, a separate surgery patient waiting room and a fully equipped CLIA-certified frozen section laboratory including 2 cryostats and automatic tissue stainer. 2 Rooms are cross-used for both surgery and lasers. Current lasers include Candela GentleLase, GentleYAG and Vbeam as well as a
Q-switched YAG and Intense Pulsed Light Device.
The majority of the clinical work is cutaneous oncology with an emphasis on Mohs surgery and reconstruction. Approximately 650 Mohs surgery cases are done annually at our institution. Other procedures done include hair transplantation, lasers (Pulsed Dye, Long-Pulsed YAG and Alexandrite, Q-switched YAG and IPL), Injectables (Botox) and less frequently other dermatologic surgical techniques including scar revision and rhinophyma repair. We have an excellent working relationship with other specialties and the fellow may attend selected post-Mohs reconstructions by specialists in Plastics, Otolaryngology and Ophthalmology at the University of Washington affiliated facilities. If possible, some time will be provided to the fellow to work with attendings in these other specialties.
As-needed attendance at a Multidisciplinary Tumor Board to present difficult cases is available. Dr Phil Fleckman has a regular nail surgery clinic which the fellow is able to attend.
