Visiting Medical Students

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 outpatient dermatology clinics, spending time with a variety of faculty members and residents and enabling the students to learn more about Duke Dermatology.

Rising fourth year students interested in dermatology should apply via the Visiting Student Application Services portal. Please note that to participate in this elective, an affiliation agreement between the student’s home institution and Duke is required. Please apply via VSAS and include:

  • Medical school transcript
  • A copy of your official USMLE board examination scores
  • Please indicate your preferred date(s)

In addition, please submit the following information to Jessica Braddock:

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