Clinical Dermatology Courses

Program Operations Specialist, Medical Student Programs

The Department of Dermatology offers clinical rotations in the Seattle and WWAMI regions.  

In Seattle, medical students will work in dermatology clinics with other students also gaining inpatient consult service experience. Our goal is to offer students the opportunity to learn basic approaches for diagnosis and management of common skin problems that present in clinical practice and address other key areas of dermatologic knowledge. 

There are several clinical sites for the dermatology rotation, each with their own character and unique opportunities. Our rotations are often a mix of two-three different sites throughout the week. You can learn more about the various locations here. 

We also offer a Pediatric Dermatology course at Seattle Children’s Hospital.  

In the WWAMI region, we mostly offer outpatient rotations at private clinics in the community.
