UTMB Plans 2010 Dermatology Residency Interviews for February

In a departure from recent tradition, the UTMB Department of Dermatology has selected February 2010 (Thursday, February 4 and Friday, February 5) as the two interview dates it will be offering to outside applicants. Typically UTMB dermatology does not begin reviewing completed applications until the day after the current application deadline, November 1, 2009. Interview offers to 20-30 outside applicants are usually extended in December, and approximately 10 applicants are placed on an alternate list, with possible later interview offers made on a space available basis. There will be 3 advanced standing position offered in the 2010 NRMP, with matched applicants beginning their PGY-2 dermatology residency at UTMB in July 2011. UTMB Dermatology usually interviews all of its internal candidates informally before the outside applicants are interviewed.

UTMB no longer offers a combined 5-year dermatology/pediatric residency. It was discontinued following Hurricane Ike in 2008.
