The Division of Dermatology, University of Ottawa, provides a well-balanced educational experience for residents in a small cohesive program. Residents are exposed to a wealth of clinical material at both the The Ottawa Hospital and Childrenâ€™s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. In addition residents develop excellent dermatological surgical skills including MOHâ€™s Surgery. Residents are taught Dermatopatholgy in seminars and electives with our experienced Dermatopathologist. Our division is recognized as a center of excellence in Contact Dermatitis, Skin Ulcer Care, MOHâ€™s Surgery, and Laser Therapy. Our staff are experienced, friendly, and treat residents with respect.
Residents have a good teaching to service ratio. The program has 14 residents (PGY1-5) sharing on-call. Our weekly Academic half day includes Dermatology Rounds with interesting cases, Basic Science seminars, Therapeutics, Pathology, and Morphology.
Residents present both nationally and internationally. They also partake in clinical research projects which are usually published.
Residents have clinics and in-patient services at The Ottawa Hospital and the Childrenâ€™s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. The Division of Dermatology is based at the Civic site of the The Ottawa Hospital where there is a residentâ€™s room with computer access.
Our residents spend at least one week in Nunavut during their program under the guidance of Dr. S. Shukle.
