U of A’s Dermatology Program has an amazing variety of medical and surgical dermatology cases, with expert staff in medical dermatology, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, melanoma, and Mohs surgery, among many other things. In addition to this, our staff are highly dedicated to teaching, whether it’s teaching around cases in clinic and directing us to quality resources to help focus our studying, or about something else that a resident may be interested in. Collaboration is a must in our program – we work with other specialties to have regular multidisciplinary clinics like the Dermatology-Rheumatology Clinic, Dermatology-Hematology Clinic and Dermatology-Psychiatry/Skin Health Clinic. The residents themselves are very friendly and encouraging of one another – we are very social, but also collegial and love to share our knowledge with one another!
Our faculty are extremely supportive of your academic interests and initiatives; both the faculty and resident group genuinely care about each other’s well-being.
Work hard, play hard! We are all extremely hard-working individuals who love to learn and teach each other in clinic and at academic half-day. At the same time, we enjoy gathering for socials, whether it’s going for coffee together in the middle of the day or coming together to enjoy some good food.
Fun! Lots to do in Edmonton, in the River Valley, amazing food scene, lively vibrant community along Whyte Ave/University Area. There’s lots to do whether you’re a foodie, artsy, and a lover of the outdoors!
Of course we have resident socials and retreats to support wellness, but overall it’s easy to feel well in a supportive and tight-knit resident group. In addition, there are regular check-ins with residents, and the staff are genuinely interested in their residents and how we are doing.
Dermatology (Canada-wide) will be implementing the Competence By Design Curriculum in 2022, which will be lots of exciting changes with how our education is structured and delivered. The curriculum will be improved and residents will find more ways to improve themselves both in clinic and outside of clinic to become the best clinician possible.
