DSC in Dermatology Boston University




Course info


The mission of the Boston University Department of Dermatology is to serve as a leader in education, research, and patient care for skin health and diseases of the skin. We are committed to excellence in patient care, teaching, and generating new knowledge about normal and diseased skin, and are committed to innovation in all of our endeavors. We strive to meet the highest standards of ethics and academic excellence. Ultimately, we expect that our work will provide insights into the basic mechanisms underlying the development of skin diseases and lead to novel approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of skin diseases, which will improve the lives of our patients and those of the millions of patients who suffer from cutaneous disorders worldwide.

The department provides dermatologic training to:

medical students
dermatology residents
international physicians in degree and non-degree programs
residents in primary care, family medicine, internal medicine, and pediatrics (lectures and clinical rotations)
practicing primary care physicians
clinical fellows in cutaneous oncology and dermatopathology
pre and postdoctoral research fellows in cell and molecular biology and preventive oncology

While students enrolled in the Doctorate Program will continue coursework in clinical dermatology with direct patient contact and in classroom settings, a major portion of the third and fourth years of this program is devoted to original clinical and/or laboratory-based independent research under the guidance of a faculty member to fulfill a rigorous thesis requirement. This includes literature review, experimental design, publication(s) of research findings in peer-reviewed journals, and writing of a high-quality thesis. In addition, 8 credits of coursework at the Boston University School of Public Health are required. All students who are not previously formally trained in statistical methodology are strongly advised to take at least one statistics course offered by the School of Public Health, as competence in statistical analysis of research date is required.
