Department of Dermatology Information

The dermatology residency program started in 1991 under the direction of Stephen Purcell, DO. The program has been sponsored by Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine since 1991. Beginning in 2010, the residency program has been accredited through Lehigh Valley Health Network. Each year, the dermatology core faculty physicians choose two highly competitive candidates (from more than 50 graduate physician applicants) to complete the three-year residency journey. This results in a total of six residents under continuous faculty physician tutelage.

Having the opportunity to be a part in the dermatological training of young resident physicians is a rewarding benefit. The core faculty’s 12 board-certified dermatologists and dermatopathologists remain up-to-date in all areas of dermatological care. This level of high dermatological competency is maintained and enhanced through ongoing residency instruction and complemented by monthly journal club meetings, monthly in-office clinical grand rounds and Philadelphia Dermatological Society meetings.
