HCA Healthcare/USF Morsani College of Medicine GME: Largo Medical Center Dermatology Program
ACGME Accredited Dermatology Residency
The three-year Dermatology Residency program at Largo Medical Center is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). After successful completion of the Dermatology Residency Program at Largo Medical Center, residents will be eligible to sit for the American Board of Dermatology board examination. Largo Medical Center maintains a consistent 100% board pass rate in years past. The program provides a clinically stimulating and academically rigorous curriculum in an environment of mentoring and professional development.
The program provides extensive participation in patient care across two campuses: Largo Medical Center and Largo Medical Center – Indian Rocks, as well as other inpatient and outpatient health care facilities in the area. Residents spend the majority of their clinical time at the nine Bay Dermatology offices. The faculty consists of board-certified dermatologists and dermatopathologists. A weekly resident dermatology clinic provides additional clinical experience. The curriculum may be adjusted to meet the specific educational objectives of the residents as long as such changes meet the requirement of accreditation. Outside rotations are performed at various institutions throughout the United States.
Our didactics include grand rounds, tumor board, journal club, conferences and weekly lectures on book review.
Residents complete a 3-year training program. Working hours are generally 7:00am – 7:00pm. Dermatology residents take pager call for a month at a time, two times per year. Residents receive a total of 20 days of paid time off which can be used for vacation, personal needs and holidays.Apply for Dermatology Residency
