Additional Information:

This elective MUST be approved and coordinated directly with a faculty member, so STUDENTS MUST HAVE A SPONSORING FACULTY BEFORE THEY ARE ABLE TO REGISTER FOR THIS ELECTIVE. Students should first contact the department so that we know exactly what they want to do and determine when and if a faculty member is available to supervise the student. Which faculty member will depend upon the dermatology specialty in which the student is interested.

Those who elect this course may attend the monthly clinical session of the Maryland or D.C. Dermatological Societies as guests of the University of Maryland.
