Clinical Programs & Rotation

Outpatient Clinical Dermatology

Outpatient dermatology services are provided at 1 World’s Fair Drive, Somerset, NJ. The Department’s clinic measures 2,600 square feet and is contiguous with an additional 1,400 square feet of administrative space available for residents’ use. There are eight to nine half-day sessions per week, and residents spend approximately 30-35 hours in clinic each week. Residents participate in the care of all patients as there are no separate faculty and resident practices. All patient encounters are staffed by the attending physicians with no exceptions.

Specialty clinics include General Dermatologic Surgery (2 half days per week) that is attended by all residents, Pediatric Dermatology (1 half day per week) participated on by all residents, and Patch testing service assigned on a rotating basis.

Space and equipment are available for instruction in dermatologic surgery, electrosurgery, phototherapy, cryosurgery, laboratory techniques (KOH preparations, ectoparasite scrapings and Tzanck smears), application of topical medicaments and dressings, epicutaneous testing, phototesting and other diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

The patient population in clinic is diverse, as are the conditions the residents see and treat. New Brunswick is a small city with a large African American and Latino community; thus, resident exposure to a range of skin types. We see patients who come directly to us for care, those who are referred from their primary physician, and those that are referred from dermatologists in the community.
