No Texas Dermatology Residency Programs in the Top 20!

According to a study published in the October 2014 issue of Cutis, no Texas Dermatology Residency Programs are ranked in the top 20 programs nationally (see Aquino LL, Wen G, Wu JJ. US Dermatology Residency Program Rankings. Cutis 2014;94;180-194). Conclusions were based on data from 2008. The only southern programs in the top 20 were Emory (#12) and Wake Forest (#14). One Texas program (UT Southwestern) made the “Top 5 Dermatology Residency Programs Based on Amount of DF Funding Received in 2008.” They were #5. All of the authors were from Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Los Angeles. Kaiser did not make the list either!
