For the 2022 ERAS® cycle, our program will be participating in the supplemental ERAS application offered through the AAMC’s ERAS program. Applicants will be required to complete the MyERAS application, and participation in the supplemental ERAS application is optional.
Duke Dermatology interviews for the 2021-2022 season will be conducted virtually. These will be half day interview sessions conducted on the following dates and times:
- Monday, December 6, 2021 morning and afternoon session available
- Tuesday, January 11, 2022 morning session available
Wednesday, January 19, 2022 morning and afternoon session available
Applicants applying for the Dermatology research position will be asked to give a short talk describing their research work on the morning of Wednesday, January 12, 2022
Each application is carefully reviewed by a team of at least 2 faculty dermatologists and then reviewed again by our residency selection committee. We perform a rigorous holistic review considering applicants' leadership, volunteerism and community engagement, scholarship, academic performance, letters of recommendation, and insights regarding prior experiences and goals identified in the personal statement. Duke Dermatology interviews 50 applicants to fill our 5 residency positions each year.
Duke Dermatology is participating in the ERAS supplemental application for the 2021-2022 application cycle. Applicants who choose to use the supplemental application may use one of their tokens to indicate significant interest in our program. Duke medical students and students who have rotated in our department do not need to give us a token. All applications will be thoroughly reviewed regardless of whether a token was given, however the token can help to distinguish an interested applicant from another with similar experiences, interests, and credentials.
Pre- and post- interview communication
The new token system via the supplemental application provides a mechanism for all applicants to demonstrate genuine interest in our program. Because of this, we discourage informal communication expressing interest in our program including emails or calls from the applicant or an advocate on their behalf. Additionally, thank you notes or emails after interviews are not necessary and will not positively or negatively impact the resident selection process. If you have specific questions regarding our program, we first encourage you to explore our website where we have attempted to answer the most frequently asked questions. If questions remain, please reach out to our program coordinator, Jessica Braddock.
