Dermatology Residency (Florida)

Program description

Mayo Clinic in Florida offers a program that combines a one-year Internal Medicine Preliminary Residency (PGY-1) with a three-year Dermatology Residency (PGY-2 through PGY-4). There is not a separate application for the preliminary year.

This residency program prepares you for a career in private practice or academic medicine. Your training will include:

  • Inpatient and outpatient dermatology
  • Dermatologic surgery
  • Dermatopathology
  • Clinical research
  • Elective rotations at Mayo Clinic in Rochester - 1 month
  • Pediatric dermatology – Longitudinal community experience and required rotation to Mayo Clinic Arizona (1 month in 2nd and 3rd year).
  • Extensive clinical training in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the skin, hair, nails and mucous membranes

A patient mix offering experience with both routine general dermatology cases and unusual skin disorders, ensuring strong training in diagnostics.

All applicants to this program apply through the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). Senior medical students match for a residency position at Mayo Clinic through the National Residency Match Program (NRMP). No appointments are made outside the NRMP.

Matching to the specialty program includes a one-year Internal Medicine Preliminary Residency (PGY-1) that is available only for trainees who complete all of their residency training at Mayo Clinic in Florida. The goal of the one-year Internal Medicine Preliminary Residency is to provide a solid foundation for further training in anesthesiology, dermatology, neurology, radiation oncology and radiology advanced programs.

Our programs are accredited by the ACGME and residents are included within the ACGME complement of the first year of the Internal Medicine Residency.


The training program fulfills the requirements for training as stated by the American Board of Dermatology and is accredited by Residency Review Committee for Dermatology of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.


You will be eligible to take the American Board of Dermatology examination upon completion of the residency.
