Our comprehensive 5-year residency program in Dermatology has full accreditation by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Funding for residents comes from the provincial government. Residents present their research at the UBC and CIHR Skin Research Day and are encouraged to present at national and international meetings. Several of our past residents have received awards from the American Contact Dermatitis Society, the Women’s Dermatology Society, and the Dermatology Times of Canada.
Dr. Aaron Wong is the Program Director of the the Dermatology Residency Program. The full 5-year resident training program in Dermatology is entered directly from medical school through the CaRMs match (www.carms.ca)
The Residency Program also hosts clinical fellows in dermatologic surgery, photomedicine/lasers, hair, and dermatopathology from around the world. In the last several years some of our fellows have come from the US, Ireland, Chile, Taiwan, Israel, and Saudi Arabia.
