Medical College of Wisconsin Dermatology Research Fellowships

Collaboration Table 2F 3M

The Medical College of Wisconsin Department of Dermatology invites applications for Clinical Research Fellowships. In a typical year, we have one predoctoral fellow (rising third- or fourth-year medical student) and one postdoctoral fellow (MD graduate).

Research fellows are important members of the research team consisting of faculty, clinical fellows, residents, and research coordinators. Fellows will gain valuable experience with publications, posters, oral presentations, and grant applications. In addition, fellows are actively involved in study design, subject enrollment, and regulatory management. Opportunities to observe in dermatology clinic are offered throughout the year.

Both the predoctoral fellowship and the postdoctoral fellowship for the 2024-2025 year have been filled.
