Important Program Information

We request that applicants also complete the Departmental Supplemental Questionnaire. This allows us to assess each applicant’s specific areas of interest to ensure their application is reviewed by the appropriate faculty in those specific areas. Should the applicant be invited, this information is also used to help craft the best possible interview day experience, with exposure to faculty experts in the area of expressed interest. That departmental questionnaire is different and separate from the Supplemental ERAS application. For the 2024 ERAS cycle, our program will be participating in the optional 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.

All complete applications received by the application deadline date are personally reviewed by at least two Penn dermatology faculty. Penn dermatology does not screen ERAS applications based on USMLE scores, AOA status, geography, or other criteria. Penn Dermatology values your life experiences and the path that you have taken to get where you are. We welcome you to include those experiences in your personal statement.

Please Note: Completing a rotation, clinical or research project, or other academic pursuit at Penn Dermatology, while providing an excellent educational experience and exposing the student to the department and faculty, does not in any way guarantee that an interview will be offered to the rotator should they apply for a Dermatology Residency training position at Penn. We read and review all complete applications that we receive by the application deadline date and, due to the number of excellent applicants, cannot interview everyone. Even exceptionally qualified candidates may not receive an interview.
