Pennsylvania Dermatologists - Penn Hershey Dermatology

At Penn State Hershey Dermatology, our team educates patients, medical students, physicians, residents, and the community about the newest findings in skin disease research. We rank among the best clerkships and core lectures within Penn State College of Medicine. As one of the most respected residency programs in the country, we continually host nationally recognized faculty and continuing medical education programs. Our faculty are invited as lecturers and visiting professors across the world.

Physician Scientist Residency Track

We are excited to announce the addition of an ABD approved physician-scientist training track to our current dermatology resident training program.

Successful candidates will complete the majority of the ABD required clinical experience early in their 3rd year of residency (PGY4). Candidates will have the remainder of the that year as well as a 4th year (PGY5), as a clinical instructor, to participate in basic science or translational research.
