ARUniversity of Arkansas for Medical SciencesVery hands-on which is something I read from prior years and why I chose to rotate here. Plenty of opportunities to present and do biopsies to make a good impression and garner a letter. The resident didactics are actually really great for followig along as a student because they are question-based. Residents are really fun to work with! And if you like outdoors, LR is a great town. 3N (didn't ask)interviewed while thereEpicVery hands-on which is something I read from prior years and why I chose to rotate here.

CAUniversity of California (San Diego)Incredible experience, highly recommend! The residents and attendings are very welcoming and invested in your education. They love teaching and pointing things out for you, so you're always involved in some capacity even if you are shadowing. You also get the opportunity to see your own patients depending on the attending and clinic; on average you will probably see your own patients 2 days out of the week. The rest of the week is either shadowing, didactics, grand rounds, assisting in excisions, or dermpath. You have grand rounds on a weekly basis, with the location alternating between the navy hospital and UCSD. You do a 5 min presentation at the 4th week's grand rounds, and the residents do a great job of detailing the expectations for it. Overall, I would highly recommend this experience, you are guaranteed to learn a ton and have exposure to various aspects of dermatology. And of course, the city is amazing as well. Side note: Just make sure you have a car or a rental to travel between sites.4N (didn't ask)cinEpicWill need a car to travel to multiple sites.Will need a car to travel to multiple sites.Incredible experience, highly recommend!

CAUSC/LAC+USC Medical CenterIncredible rotation. 5yesOrchidIncredible rotation. <-Agree that it was an amazing rotation for learning with a wonderful consult service. This is definitely not a shadowing experience and you are heavily involved in both clinic and on consults. Having functional spanish is incredibly helpful, as most patients will be spanish-speaking only. HOWEVER, I would be wary of doing this away if you have no California ties at all if your goal is to get an interview. Upon interview invite time, they still heavily favored those with Cali ties, although there are exceptions of courses. Almost all their current residents are from Cali as well.Incredible rotation. | <-Agree that it was an amazing rotation for learning with a wonderful consult service.

CAUniversity of California (Davis) Health System
UC Davis has a smaller faculty-to-resident ratio (lots of residents,
smaller amount of faculty that work with students), so this is a very
shadowing-heavy rotation. There are a few attendings that will allow you
to go into the room alone to perform a brief history & physical,
though the majority will have you follow a resident during each clinic.
This can be a little disengaging, particularly if you've already
completed other dermatology rotations before this one (I think it would
have been better to have done this rotation first to give me a chance to
shadow & absorb information before jumping into more engaging derm
rotations). All of the faculty and residents I worked with were kind and
engaging, and many of them were enthusiastic about teaching, and I
never felt ignored. The program director & the chair are both very
kind and excited about teaching students as well!

CAUniversity of California (San Francisco)From reddit comment: "I did two weeks here. Away rotators end up in North campus. I thought it was pretty cool you rotate through several different specialties. They have a melanoma clinic which was cool. I will say that living in the heart of San Francisco is extremely expensive so definitely budget for that. The program director is really nice and she gives some special attention. You get to present to her several times during your rotation. At the end of the rotation, there’s a presentation that you give to the program director as well so there is a lot of time to shine."Loved my away rotation here, also did 2 weeks.

DCGeorge Washington UniversityWould not recommend, The PD is very cold and has no interest in rotating medical students. The residents largely do not allow you to interview patients one on one.1NoYes<- My experience was acutally the complete opposite. This was my favorite away rotation by far. Residents and faculty give you a lot of autonomy, you see all of the patients first, present to the attending or PD and type up your own notes into the EMR. While I was there I was able to to perform biopsies on my own, perform fungal scrapings and present microscopic findings to the attending, do cryo, and assist with ED&Cs surgeries. Faculty are all very welcoming and extremely supportive and the PD is the greatest asset of the program. Amazing learning experience.<- My experience was acutally the complete opposite.

DCWashington Hospital Center3yesyesResidents were the friendliest that I have come across yet--they truly want you to be involved as a team member instead of an annoying medical student shadower. Resdients are all legitimately friends with each other and despite working very hard they make it fun. The inpatient service is a true strength--you will see crazy diagnoses/complex med-derm that you won't see elsewhere. Only downside is there's alot of commuting between sites--I personally didn't mind this at all but I brought a car with me to DC. Residents were happy to help medical students without a car commuting between sites and public transportation is available too. I never ran into the crazy DC traffic that people talk about but I know that this can at times be an issue too.

GAEmory UniversitySuper fun rotation. Emory is a solid academic program without any associated malignancy. Good mix of working directly with attendings at the University Clinic and working more with the residents at the VA and Grady (county hospital). Mostly see patients on your own and present to the residents/attending, though some attendings will just have you shadow. Lots of surgery days that residents will let you assist with. Helps to have a car as you will be traveling to multiple sites. No presentation or test durnig the rotation. Rotation counts as your interview, though you do have set up meetings with the faculty members yourself. You are given a half day off a week for interviews and most of the faculty will just interview you when you work with them in clinic. Super fun rotation.

The residents do surgery clinic every Monday and they do cosmetic clinics scattered throughout. They also have a laser clinic day where all the residents are in Baton Rouge with the lasers.

Still a lot of diverse patients in New Orleans and surgery clinics. Opportunities for taking biopsies but may have to push the residents do so much more than observe other surgeries.

MIWayne State University School of MedicineBy far the most fun I've ever had on a rotation. You work at either the Oakwood or Troy office if you're an away rotator. Unfortunately away students can't rotate at the VA, but for Wayne students, the VA is the best part. The residents are the most down-to earth people I've met and tend to have so much fun with one another. Faculty lets residents have a TON of autonomy, which is really cool. You also have the opportunity to go to the dermatopathology lab in Monroe and work with the chairman all day if you'd like as well. 4YBy far the most fun I've ever had on a rotation.

MIHenry Ford HospitalHighly recommend. The faculty and residents treat one another like family. It seems like a very caring program, and the faculty are very focused on teaching both residents and students during clinic. They have a ton of awesome specialty clinics. Depedning no the attending you may see patients all day or it may be observational. You have an opportunity to set up meetings with both PDs (Dr. Kerr and Dr. Koen), the Chair (Dr. Ozog) and the previous chair (Dr. Lim) and they are all very approachable and nice. Have a 5 minute PICO question at the end of the rotation and a test based on the AAD modules. The residents take you out for Happy Hour to get to know you at the beginning of the rotation. Would recommed driving because a lot of key faculty work at satelitte clinics. 1, 2YYEPICHighly recommend. The faculty and residents treat one another like family.

MOUniversity of Missouri-ColumbiaGood rotation. Faculty and residents were very kind. Many of my days were half days so this would be a good rotation to do in August while you are also working on ERAS. The application process for the away was long and required a lot of paperwork.

NCUniversity of North Carolina HospitalsThis was a great rotation. The people are extremely nice, and atmosphere of the program is very laidback. All of the clinics run out of one space, and everyone has their own little cubby. Lots of interaction with the residents although you shadow the attending for the day. Couple opportunities to see your own patient and present in clinic. 1 week of consults at UNC hospitals where you work on dedicated consult team with a resident, this is where you pick up a couple of patients, see them and present on rounds. Spend some time on Mohs as well, go to resident lectures one day a week. Very well rounded program strong in all areas, but difficult to get as they only take ~4 a year. If you are accepted I would suggest you go as they do not interview widely and several current residents were rotators. PD is amazing. Got a letter. Reasonable end of rotation exam, no presentation. Get a couple half days off. Coordinator super nice. Super approachable and friendly faculty with not a single person who was intimidating, obnoxious or rude. 10/10 1YesYesEpicThis is a great rotation and great program, they really care about your experience and will interview you if you rotate here.

OHCase Western Reserve University/University HospitalsBasically just shadowing for the month. There are no MAs so they rely on the medical students to be their MAs. The upside is no notes to write but you never get EMR access. Their EMR is also really basic and none of the residents like it7Cooper is cold and unfriendly. Seemed overworked as both the chair and the PD. Seems like the program has had some issues hiring a PD and getting someone to do peds derm. A lot of the heavy hitters from research are kind of cold and likely close to retiring (including Cooper himself who has been chair for 25 years)Excellent place to complete an away rotation. Lots of the people publishing here are new faculty members and residents -- so I do believe the institution will fare well if the older faculty decide to retire.

You will gain exposure to almost all the different subspecialties. New clerkship coordinator, so it made it a little dissheveled at first. Amazing city! So many fun things to do in Portland.There were some scheduling issues, I think likely because of the program coordinator being new. But she was super friendly and did her best to accomodate our interests. While there was quite a bit of shadowing, faculty and residents did a great job teaching and making sure you were integrated into the clinic.

Test and presentation at the end, but it's not stressful. Ideal away rotation experience. Apparently not all rotators get interviews. 4YesYeseClinicalWorks (outpatient, 99% of your time), Epic (inpatient)Amazing rotation, really hands on. Explicitly told by faculty hat not every rotator gets an invite.Number of students/month can vary widely. Also have PA students and non-dermatology resident rotators. Can be hard to get attending time. If there are enough patients to go around, you will see them and do the note. Not every rotator gets an interview. Really nice residents. Faculty hit and miss. Presentation and test (multiple choice written, multiple choice kodachrome). Not sure I would recommend as you have no control on the # of rotators, which makes a huge difference on the experience. Would definitely recommend rotating here. Echoing what everyone says, SUPER hands on and act as a resident (seeing own patients, writing own notes, biopsies). Lots of non away rotators (PAs, home students not interested in derm, psych residents) but schedule is flexible and I felt like away rotators got priority. PD said they don't interview all away rotators but that your application is "specially considered". Lots of young dynamic faculty, residents are super friendly and down to earth. A car is extremely helpful, although visiting students park in a shuttle garage. No car is do-able, especially if you live in the student housing right by the hospital. Harder to be carless if you sublet as you'll have to depend on the Providence bus system. There are bus lines that go to the hospital, but depending on where you live you may have to transfer at least once. The culture and experience at your home program or other aways should be a factor into whether or not you go to Brown. Ex: if you have a hands-on home program, then you don't gain as much from spending a month here than someone whose clinical derm experience is mostly shadowing.disadvantageSorry typing on phone. This comment makes no sense though. A hands on program will always be a better learning experience than shadowing, so if your home and prior aways were hands on you should want to go to brown where it is the same.
