Visiting Student Rotations

Thank you for your interest in the 2023-2024 dermatology visiting student rotation. Our applications are closed. Please check back in early 2024 for next year’s information.

Duke Dermatology offers visiting students the opportunity to participate in a four-week clinical elective. During the course of the month, students will rotate through the inpatient dermatology consult service and multiple outpatient dermatology clinics, spending time with a variety of faculty members and residents at our various sites and enabling the students to learn more about Duke Dermatology.

  • A brief statement describing your potential areas of interest in dermatology and professional goals, and explaining why you would like to rotate at Duke
