Dermatology Residency Program

The Residency Experience


The Albert Einstein/Montefiore Division of Dermatology offers a three-year dermatology residency training program leading to eligibility for certification by the American Board of Dermatology. Candidates for certification are required to have a total of four years of postgraduate training including one year of post-graduate training in one of the following broad-based programs in the United States accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) or a similar program in Canada accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada: a transitional year or a first-year residency in internal medicine, general surgery, family practice, obstetrics and gynecology, or pediatrics.  

Current Residents

The Albert Einstein/ Montefiore dermatology residency program welcomes up to 7 residents each year. Meet our current residents here.  


Residents gain a diverse perspective on cutaneous disorders and treatments in both adults and children through clinical rotations. Residents rotate through Einstein hospitals and affiliates, spending time in a variety of ambulatory clinics, specialty clinics and on the inpatient consult service. Full time faculty supervise residents in their clinical activities.

Speciality Training


Training in dermatopathology is provided through a joint effort of the Division of Dermatology and Department of Pathology. The program offers residents a dedicated dermatopathology experience throughout their dermatology training. Additional dermatopathology training is obtained through weekly clinicopathologic conferences, lecture series, dermatopathology book review, and slide review. Residents have a total of 3 months of dedicated dermatopathology rotations during residency. During these rotations, residents spend several days a week at our affiliate, Dermpath Diagnostics, with slide sessions led by several full-time dermatopathologists.

Dermatologic Surgery

Training in dermatologic surgery is provided through specialty electives and weekly surgical clinics at both Montefiore, Jacobi, Wakefield, and St. Barnabas. The program offers residents a dedicated dermatologic surgery experience which includes a formal lecture series and 2 months of hands-on exposure to Mohs micrographic surgery and complex cutaneous reconstructions with our dedicated dermatologic surgeon on faculty. Based mainly at the brand new, state-of-the-art Hutchinson campus, residents not only gain surgical skills, but have exposure to a variety of non-surgical procedures, including lasers and non-invasive injectable techniques. This rotation also includes a weekly resident cosmetic clinic.


The Einstein-Montefiore Division of Dermatology is strongly interested in cultivating academic dermatologists and, in particular, in encouraging trainees to undertake careers which include clinical or laboratory research. Dermatology residents have a clinical research requirement to be completed prior to their graduation.
