The program is a full-time course of instruction which shall be a minimum of 36 months in duration. A minimum of 33 months must include supervised management of patients (clinical rotations).

The general dermatology service at Medical City Fort Worth allows for exposure to a broad spectrum of skin conditions among the patients in the different practices in the area. Residents will work alongside the attending physician.

At Medical City Fort Worth, we are committed to providing a wealth of medical education to our residents. However, we also understand the importance of allowing bonds to form between classmates and the significance of resting to avoid mental fatigue. Time away from the hospital is included in the curriculum to satisfy these needs. Residents are encouraged to form friendships and take time to recharge so that they can perform at their best in the clinical setting.

Choosing a program location is a very personal decision largely based on where you want to settle, and if Texas is your likely destination, then training at Medical City Fort Worth makes good sense.
