Please Note: Completing a rotation at Penn Dermatology, while providing an excellent educational experience and exposing the student to the department and faculty, does not in any way guarantee that an interview will be offered to the rotator should they apply for a complete Dermatology Residency training position at Penn. We read and review all complete applications that we receive and, due to the number of excellent applicants, cannot interview everyone. Even exceptionally qualified candidates may not receive an interview.
