What sets us apart?

Foster your skills as an expert dermatologist in our accredited three-year program. Established in 2002, our residency strives to produce excellent clinical dermatologists who are prepared to enter the practice of dermatology or a specialty fellowship program.

Residents gain experience at five different hospitals and multiple private clinics. Because the Hampton Roads region has the highest rate of skin cancer in Virginia, residents learn to treat a wide range of pathologies in a variety of patient populations. 

See yourself in Hampton Roads

The Hampton Roads region that EVMS serves is a vibrant community with 1.7 million residents scattered across nine cities and five counties in southeastern coastal Virginia.

Miles of waterfront, historical and cultural attractions, parks and outdoor recreation areas, lively nightlife, seasonal festivals and family-friendly entertainment make it clear that there's something for everyone here in Hampton Roads.

At EVMS, we know life happens, and we want you to be covered when it does. That’s why we offer competitive benefits packages for our residents and fellows.

A supportive environment

Work-life balance is important during your residency, and we are committed to supporting our residents throughout their time at EVMS. Through EVMS' Wellness Works program, our residents and fellows receive the same wellness resources as our faculty and staff.

In addition, our Resident Wellness program for residents and fellows gives you access to support groups, after-hours counseling services, running clubs, leadership coaching and more.
